This workshop covers how to stay safe in a digital environment while using the many conveniences a smart home offers. The first half focuses on understanding where the risks are in the digital environment and how to stay safe by creating secure networks and employing strong security tactics with biometrics, passwords, and other available features. The second half focuses on the Internet of Things, covering everything you are likely to find in a smart home. The presentation offers tips on how to reduce the risk of hackers invading your privacy through smart speakers and TVs, as well as addressing the risks associated with connected cars and smart appliances.
teach you how to identify where your PII (personally identifiable information) is at risk and how to protect your privacy in the digital world when using everything from your phone to online bill paying to communicating with the Internet of Things (all those “smart” devices). We will consider questions such as: Are biometrics really more secure than a good password? Is your Alexa listening to you ALL the time? Can you delete your internet presence? Are all privacy browsers created equal? Join us to learn more about these topics and others related to digital privacy!
