“Privacy, Profiles, & Profits: How to Help Protect Yourself from Problematic Technologies”

Prof. Sascha Meinrath

Time: 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm

Location: Schlow Centre Region Library

An informative, how-to workshop focusing on simple security precautions everyone can take. From shoppers' club cards and your privacy settings on Facebook, to the cars we drive and phones we use -- the data we are creating is being used by governments, advertisers, and business strategists to build your personal profile! But what do we do when the data being gathered crosses the ethical line -- how do we help protect ourselves from harm, unintentional and purposeful? Technology guru, professor and digital freedom fighter, Sascha Meinrath, talks data mining at this pop-up community event! Questions will be taken in advance. Register online -- space is limited. Refreshments provided!
