Online Privacy in a Post-Covid World

This talk will cover a number of new and increased risks that individuals and businesses face as a result of changes in the global privacy landscape as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

  • Why should we care?
  • Is it ever acceptable to trade privacy for the “global good” of humanity?
  • What impact does increased government surveillance have?
  • Can safeguards ensure we don’t end up in a dystopian Orwellian future?
  • What can we do as individuals or businesses to mitigate these risks?

A number of solutions to traditional as well as new privacy concerns will be presented including top tips for keeping yourself safe online.
