Modern life is all about convenience. But that convenience comes at a cost. Attendees will learn ways in which their privacy is being invaded without their knowledge or consent as well as practical methods of protecting themselves and regaining some control over what information they unwittingly share. Areas of concentration will mostly focus on social and work protocols though some time will be given to exploring the realms of Paranoid Privacy & Psycho Security.
