Next ONLINE Digital Privacy Salon 28/09/21: Big Tech VS The Public?

Apple putting spyware on IPhones? Facebook teaming up with Ray-Ban to put spyware on faces? Instagram researchers leaking info that the platform is harmful for teenage girls?

We know that big tech companies are motivated by profits but what can we do when those companies are acting in harmful or potentially ways?

In this edition of the Salon we will take a look at the developments mentioned above and others like them and try to see if there is anything we can do beyond giving up digital communications completely to protect ourselves from the effects of Big Tech.

Digital Privacy Apéro: Malware and their impact on our lives – 10/03/21

Wednesday, March 10 sees the first Digital Privacy Apero of the year:

The first kind of malware that we will cover are the ransomware which were in the press a lot in the recent months, especially since a handful of hospitals were heavily impacted by them.

Then, we will talk about spouseware and other parental control spyware used in households and companies to spy on family members and colleagues, and how they can be compromised and leak private information.

Finally, we will learn about some state-sponsored malware that are used by governments to target journalists and activists. As a case study we will discuss the Israeli technology firm NSO and its connections to Luxembourg.

Special Parents & Carers Privacy Salon Pt2 Re-scheduled for 17/02/20

DUE TO PEOPLE BEING UNABLE TO ATTEND LAST WEEK, WE HAVE RE-SCHEDULED THE 2ND DATE TO WEDNESDAY, 17/02/20

As part of the activities around Safer Internet Day 2021, in collaboration with BEE SECURE we are doing a Privacy Salon addressed at parents & carers. This Salon is in 2 parts, the workshops can be standalone, but most benefit will be gained by attending both.

Dates:
Wednesday 17/02/21, 18:30-20:00

Address:
ONLINE: https://bbb.opencloud.lu/b/chr-djj-uup

OBJECTIVES

• upskill participants, giving them tools, tips, tricks & strategies to deal with digital privacy
• apply those skills to kids and the Internet.

SOME TOPICS

First session

• Personal Identifiable Information (PII)
• password management
• blocking trackers
• secure connections
• social media best practices

Second session

• Kids Personal Identifiable Information (PII)
• parental controls
• tracking apps & privacy
• Age differences & content access

Parenting/caring in relation to the Internet can be very stressful for many reasons, one of them being that parents and carers are expected to guide their kids through the online world while they often feel they don’t have the appropriate skills and knowledge themselves.

This is highlighted more than ever in the current situation where many are working from home, sometimes home-schooling their kids, creating more stress and where online cyber attacks, scams and hoaxes are increasing dramatically.

The Parents Privacy Salon aims to provide training in basic Internet privacy/security concepts both related to parents/carers as well as their children. The workshops will enable parents & carers to understand and protect their own privacy, and consequently be better equipped to help their kids navigate the complex, exciting world of connected communications.

The Parents Privacy Salon training consists of two workshops giving practical advice and tips, showing participants some tools to use on computers, smart phones and tablets and how to install and use them.
