Anyone with an Internet connection can read the latest news, listen to their favorite music, chat with friends,  search for anything online, shop, pay bills, play games, and watch videos, all for “free”.  But it’s not really free.  If you’re not paying with money, you’re paying with data.  You’re not the customer, you’re the product.

Companies like Google and Facebook harvest every little bit of data that they can get their hands on, and monetize it in a variety of ways including selling it to other companies, who may or may not secure it correctly.  And the now with the nature of the Internet coupled with the ever increasing number of “smart” devices that we interact with are collecting volumes of very detailed information about how and where we live, work and play 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  It’s relentless and pervasive and in many cases, not obvious.  Americans are sleepwalking into a future nearly as frightening as the one the Chinese are constructing”.

At this session, Dave Hatter will explore privacy and security for your devices.   He will also discuss the type of data that is being collected, how it’s being collected, how it’s being used, how it’s being misused, why you should care about improving your privacy, and tools and techniques to limit your digital footprint.    When Dave is done with his presentation we will allow you to call in live to ask Dave questions from your home zoom connection.   The number to call is:
