Cyber Security and Privacy: Protecting Yourself and Your Users Workshop
A 90-minute workshop, Thursday, July 6, 2017, 2:30pm Eastern/1:30pm Central/12:30pm Mountain/11:30am Pacific

If you read today’s headlines about security breaches, you might be thinking of going back to fax machines and snail mail. Or you might feel that privacy is completely dead. While there is no such thing as foolproof security and privacy, there is a middle ground that you and your users can find.

In this workshop, Nicole Hennig contrasts media hype with expert opinions to show you how prevalent certain security concerns are compared to the hype that surrounds them. She provides reasonable actions that you can take to protect yourself and your data. You can use this information to offer workshops that teach your users how to best protect themselves online.

In the workshop, Hennig discusses both the hype and expert opinions on these questions:

  • Is your laptop or smartphone’s traffic being harvested when on public wi-fi?
  • What’s the best thing to do if your device is lost or stolen?
  • Is your data safely backed up?
  • Should you trust a password manager?
  • What are the advantages of using Touch ID on iPhones?
  • Is it a good idea to use mobile payment systems in retail stores?
  • Can criminals hold your data captive and ask for ransom?
  • How can you make theft of your identity less likely?
  • Is your laptop camera or microphone recording without you knowing it?
  • Are you giving away information for targeted advertising?
  • How easy is it for anyone to see all of your search engine history?
  • Should you use encrypted messaging and email? How?

Learning outcomes:

After this workshop, you will

  • Understand more about several technologies that protect privacy and security
  • Come away with a list of actions to take to make your data more secure and tips to provide to your library users
  • Have the basis for creating a workshop that you can offer to your library community
