Data Privacy: Protecting Your Data in an Online World
Wednesday, November 18, Noon
As more and more of our time is spent online and on digital devices, including work, research, purchases, leisure, banking, dating, and our civic and political engagement, it is increasingly important to understand how our data are collected and used, and how to protect the privacy of your data. Collecting and analyzing personal data is a big business and presents new threats to civil liberties, but most people are not aware what information they are sharing when browsing the internet or using an app on a smartphone.
