Personal Security, Social Media, and Activism - Halloween Edition

To celebrate Cybersecurity Awareness Month, the CSC is collaborating with Christine Whalley, Director of Information Security at BCIT, and Columbia Data Science Institute’s Cybersecurity Center for a Halloween workshop! 

We will teach you how to protect yourself from spooky, unauthorized access of your personal information and present methods for improving your cyber-safety around your activism efforts, including protests. You will learn how your data can be connected to re-identify you, and how that data can also be used to identify the people around you.  We will walk you through implementing a variety of tools and settings for your devices and applications to protect your community, your friends, and your own privacy.  

Contact Katie at or Christine at with questions.

This event will take place on Friday, October 30th, from 2pm - 4pm Eastern.
