Protecting Your Privacy

Tuesday, September 6th at 3:30pm

Virtual Event

Topics covered will include:

  • What information the Chester Fritz Library has about you, what we do with it, and under what circumstances we share it with outside parties.
  • Threat modeling. You can’t hide from everyone, so how do you decide which threats to your privacy are the most important?
  • What easy measures you can take to protect your privacy.
  • Building good information security habits to avoid trouble before it starts.
