Tips & Tools for Protected Connection

This expert panel features seasoned digital security experts from IEEE/ISTO, ISOC, and the Tor Project. We’ll explore the practices, tools, networks and policies that are helping users more effectively protect their digital identities. We will discuss common notions of the words “privacy” and “identity” and the explore various interpretations that traverse concept, context and even social and personal politics. Whether you painstakingly work to keep your personal information offline, or “lay it all out there” on the digital plain, or hold concerns for your children online, we’ll provide an array of options for identity management. Participants will develop a more keen sense of their own definition of “private” and learn how to take a more active role in protecting personal data – for themselves, their community and future generations.
