University of Waikato Live Q&A
Keeping your Data Safe: The perils and pitfalls of cyberspace
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?
Our expert panel will address the issues around having your data online and will answer your questions about internet safety and prevention of cyber crime.
