University of Waikato Live Q&A
The University of Waikato Q&A sessions allow you to view live video streams on a range of topical subjects as well as general University information.
Upcoming Live Q&A Sessions
Being online exposes us to cyber criminals and others who commit identity theft, fraud and harassment. Every time we connect to the internet -- at home, at school, at work or on our mobile devices -- we make decisions that affect our cyber security. What's being done to prevent cyber crime? What can we do to protect ourselves and how effectively can laws of privacy and transnational law be applied in the cyber environment?
What if I can't make it?
You can view the complete Live Q&A on our YouTube channel after the live stream ends.
