FAMILY CRYPTOPARTY (free)
Sun 3 September 2017, 2-5pm
Inter/sections hosts a Family Cryptoparty to highlight issues of privacy and security that affect all of us in our connected society. It aims to empower people from all ages and walks of life with the knowledge of how to manage their personal privacy and use encryption in a way that is relevant and useful to them. The aim of this event is to increase literacy around these issues of privacy, as well as awareness of practical tools and strategies. There will be a hands-on workshop for kids (aged 6-12) where they can encode their own messages as well as four tables, each dedicated to explaining an aspect of privacy (threat models), and presenting tools for managing it.
• What is identity theft, and how can I prevent it?
• What is online surveillance, and how can I manage my privacy?
• Who is affected by online harassment, and what can I do about it?
• What is personal data, and how can I protect it?
