This hour long workshop will provide an introduction to tools at your disposal to keep your digital life secure and private. There is much discussion taking place about why privacy matters in digital contexts. After a brief overview about what information is being collected, by whom, and for what purpose, we’ll learn about various technologies that will help you protect your and others’ data. You’ll leave with an understanding of how to integrate secure technologies into your personal computing habits.
