4it techELITE webinar – “How to Survive the Internet”
|6:05pm||Presentation – “How to Survive the Internet”|
Paul Vlissidis led the cyber team on the popular Channel 4 show Hunted and has (ethically) hacked hundreds of people over the six seasons of the show.
Paul presents a talk based on his book: “How to Survive the Internet: Protect your Family from Hackers and Cyber Stalkers”
“While shooting the first celebrity series of Channel 4’s Hunted, I began to realise that our digital lives had reached a tipping point where the complexity of the technology and our knowledge of how to use it securely had diverged significantly.
Bluntly, most people don’t know how to use technology securely and this contributes to the stress of modern life. People worry that their data isn’t secure but don’t feel empowered to do anything about it.
I decided to gather together into a single place as much information and guidance as I felt people needed to be able to confidently and securely use this amazing technology that has transformed our lives.
