Have you ever considered that nearly every electronic device you own can be hacked? Are you aware that your every action online is being tracked and recorded by someone, somewhere?

According to recent cybersecurity statistics, a hacker attack takes place every 39 seconds and an average of 75 records are stolen every second. Many hackers claim that traditional antivirus and firewalls are irrelevant or obsolete. Experts say that the majority of businesses and individuals are unprepared for cyberattacks and warn that cybercrime will only increase in the future.

This introductory talk will discuss how you can strengthen your online security and minimize the digital trail you leave behind as you lead your virtual life and conduct business online, to help safeguard your anonymity and privacy.

Facilitator: Sami Khoury — Open Source Intelligence Expert and Instructor
