Internet security is not a problem that organisations and institutions deal with on a daily basis, even that we increasingly use Internet in our work. More and more often we use our private equipment for business purposes, we keep important data on phones in our pockets, we communicate privately and professionally by means of tools and services, but we know nothing or very little about their safety. How to stay calm, limit risks and be prepared for problems? That is what we will work on during the workshop. The workshop will allow you to understand existing risks and methods of self-defence protecting your safety and privacy online. During the workshop we will raise the following issues:

– the most important risks for our safety and privacy online (and not only)
– basic safety of basic tools (browsers, smartphones)
– review of methods of maintaining online privacy
– safety and control over contents created by organisations (privacy, control over channels of public communication, such as social media and private communication, such as cloud storage, online documents)
