Event Name:
Magic, Mischief, or Malevolence? Online Privacy, Internet Security, and You


In an age when we can easily access online information, share photos with family and friends, and live a large part of our lives via the Internet, we often don't give a second thought to "how" all that works. As Arthur C. Clarke said, "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." But is there any dark magic at work to make our online lives possible? This presentation will explore how much control you give up - both willingly and unwittingly - over your data, your information, your research, and your privacy when you go online and how you can (possibly) mitigate those effects.

Learning Objectives:
  • Understand the difference between privacy and security
  • Learn a number of strategies for protecting one's information online
  • Gain confidence to explain these concerns to patrons
