Do you feel overwhelmed about how to keep yourself and your personal information secure? Whether you're worried about keeping stuff private from your professor, your ex, a thief online, or the government, come to this workshop to learn more about how the Internet works and what tools and practices will limit surveillance. We'll talk about how to understand what data we're producing, who (potentially) has access to it, and how to stay safe and emotionally secure. Bring your laptop or device if you can!
