If you’re 10 years old or 100, a parent, small business owner, student, or a professional working with digital technology you might want to improve your knowledge and defences against an ever growing and quite depressing tide of digital threats.

Once upon a time computer security only concerned banks and the military. Today we all have internet, laptops, phones or tablets. We organise our lives around personal computers. They offer convenience and empowerment. But they also make us vulnerable.

Once computers promised great things. They were meant to open up society, spread free information and education. They were supposed to save time, build communities, facilitate debate, promote democracy, and generally solve the worlds problems. Instead we got bureaucracy, surveillance, advertising, distraction and addictive but empty amusement. Computers are now used to spy, manipulate, subdue and dominate, and people need to relearn how to use computer technology.

Protecting our personal devices and data, has become a life-skill we all need.

Andy Farnell will introduce his work on Digital Self Defence, provoke a discussion and open up pathways to help you to defend yourself against the unseen threats described above.
