Cyber Security is Everyone’s Problem

Did you miss the demo/presentation that Dr. Sivadon Chaisiri (Boom) of the Cyber Security Lab, Dept of Computer Science,  University of Waikato gave us on November 13th? His picture of what is happening when we go on the internet  helped us understand the risks we expose ourselves to and how we should deal with them.

It is not the same as being there, but Boom has kindly given us a link to his October presentation so you won’t miss out completely.

It is certainly scary out there. Do you have any ideas to add on what makes us vulnerable and how to keep ourselves safe?
