Information Exposed: Opting Out & Managing the World of Connected DevicesTue, Sep 15, 2020 1:00pm-2:30pm
Duration: 90 Minutes
Investigators need to understand the dark side of information
sharing and the potential risks it brings to victims, witnesses, and investigators.
To avoid potentially dangerous individuals, first responders, security
professionals, and intelligence officers choose to keep their families and
homes off the grid. Employees and agencies are at greater risk now more than ever
because fraudulent predators are taking advantage of those unfamiliar with working
from home. Hacking, phishing, and scamming are on the rise, and the threats
are expected to increase. Helping the public and high-risk targets protect
their personally identifiable information is a priority during these uncertain
times. Opting out of online personal data aggregates and managing
the technology devices inside your home can reduce the risk to you and
your family. This webinar is meant to help facilitate your understanding of
the dark side of information sharing and how to protect your, your family’s, and
the high-risk targets’ personal privacy in a very open online world. There is no
one solution, no one vendor, that has all the answers. Knowledge from this
session will enable you to begin to remove, obstruct, or obscure the open source
information that leaves you, your family, and high-risk targets vulnerable
