Online Self-Defense: How to protect your privacy, identity and security when using technology
Online services, smartphones, and other new technologies offer many benefits but also pose many privacy and security risks, such as tracking, identity theft, fraud, ransomware, and account hacking. Each week, we will explore a specific security/privacy topic chosen by study group participants, including associated risks and what you can do to protect yourself with hands-on activities. Topics might include: targeted advertising, email phishing scams, anonymity online, location tracking, social media privacy, strong passwords and account security, etc. The study group is led by Dr. Florian Schaub, Assistant Professor in the University of Michigan School of Information and College of Engineering, and Allison McDonald, PhD Candidate in Computer Science and Engineering. Dr. Schaub and his research lab investigate people’s privacy and security behaviors and ways to make it easier for people to protect their privacy and security.
