Defensive computing: Information security for individuals

Adam Reiser

This presentation will discuss security and privacy for individuals in the context of current real-world threats. Topics will include the basic principles of information security, threat modeling, and practical approaches for developing a self-defense toolkit: minimizing tracking (cookies and click tracking), avoiding rogue hotspots, malware, and other threats to privacy and security.

About the Speaker:
Adam is a UC Berkeley graduate in physics and applied mathematics, currently working as a privacy and security consultant.
