What was your online identity doing last night?
Join us for this talk given by Richard Kirk, Kellogg student (MSc Software and Systems Security) and Chief Revenue Officer at data security company 4iQ.
Recently Uber announced that 57 million of their worldwide customers have had their personal information stolen. Since most of us have multiple (on average 30) online identities and yet only 5 passwords that we reuse, what are the chances of you now being a target for cyber criminals? Our passwords are easy to guess and contain personal information that can quickly be obtained through our social media presence. Why is this something worth thinking about? Cybercrime is now a daily news story and big business for cyber criminals. Last year £30bn was lost due to cyber crime – which is almost the same cost of Brexit – £500 per person in the UK. Even if you haven’t yet been hit by a hack, it is only a matter of time.
Come and hear about what is going on in the cyber underworld and pick up some tips on how to easily help yourself.
Refreshments will be served at 16:30. The talk will begin at 16:45.
This talk is free and open to all. Booking is required. Book via Eventbrite
