Lock It Down: Your Personal Information

Thursday, January 19, 2017
6:00pm – 8:30pm

Downtown Hartford
Spotlight Theatres 39 Front Street Hartford, CT

How much are you worth to a computer hacker? We'll be exploring the idea of your personal information as a commodity to be bought and sold to the highest bidder.

When we think about cybersecurity protections to our information, often we think about safe-guarding things like credit card numbers or banking information. But what about all the behavioral information that internet companies are also tracking? What should you be worried about sharing, and how should you be protecting yourself in our increasingly virtual world? We'll also talk about what businesses worry about when it comes to cybersecurity and how that impacts the experience of their customers.

Join our panel of experts as we take a guided journey into the dark web:
