The Cyber-landscape: you, your data and the Dark web
The line that separates our physical existence and the cyber landscape is becoming increasingly blurry with our daily activities moving online and our actions online having a direct consequence on our daily existence. A majority of our transactions (such as shopping, bill payments, banking, etc.) and social interactions are now undertaken online.
Our personal data facilitate these transactions and interactions. They enable and sustain the idea of a “free” internet in which personal data is exchanged for “free” apps and access to information. This has made personal data highly valuable in the cyber landscape. So much so that a vast array of encryption technologies and legislation such as the Data Protection Act have been put in place to protect and govern the use of our personal data.
This talk highlights the importance of our personal data in the cyber landscape. The legitimate and illegitimate use of our personal data is highlighted along with mechanisms in place to keep our personal data secure and procedures for handling circumstances when the security of our personal data is compromised.
It would be great to see you all there to listen to what’s going to be a very interesting talk with Edward Apeh, and just to give you that little bit more incentive to come along, there will be 30 x tokens for the first 30 audience members to be exchanged for a FREE individual Papa Johns Pizza at the end of the talk, plus lots of free tea & coffee, dont miss out! If you have any questions about this event or would like to hear about any other upcoming student engagement with research events, contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to seeing you there!
