How did they access Jennifer Lawrence’s naked selfies, and could this happen to you? It happens to celebrities and everyday folks, these breaches of online security and privacy. Some say it feels as invasive, intrusive, and abusive as a physical violation. But how to you protect yourself from hackers, identity thieves, and other cyber-criminals? I know, I know, it’s really THE CRIMINALS who should be reformed. But meanwhile, if you’re sending naked selfies, sexting, or sending financial or other personal info via the latest information and communication technologies (and let’s face it, a ton of people are uploading, downloading, and sending through cyberspace images or information they would NOT want to make known to teachers, employers, parents, or others), then you should go check out this presentation:
“Anatomy Of A Hack” (free for students, faculty, and staff)
on Tuesday, Oct. 21, 2014 from 2:15 pm to 3:30 pm in 137-B Macrae Peak, Plemmons Student Union.
Criminals have learned how to use our phones, laptops and even refrigerators against us. How do they do it, what can they steal, and how can we protect ourselves?
You may have missed “Managing Your Digital Footprint” and “Your Online Reputation” but it’s not too late to catch this final event for Cyber Security Awareness Month at Appalachian.
