How to secure your virtual space by protecting your data, sending safe emails and backing up in a secure way!
Following up on our event with Nicky Kearns last month, which attracted so many people, I am really happy that I was able to follow up on all the questions I received afterwards and invite you to this event with the Kearns´ brothers!
In this #virtualspacehero event we want to continue raising awareness for IT | Security | Privacy related questions:
· There are so many platforms – I am lost! How do I secure all my passwords?
· What is DNS and why is it vital in the virtual space?
· 2 factor authentication, what’s that and why it is important?
· How secure is email? What are the risks?
· VPN in a global context? How do I pick a VPN service and when do I use it?
· Proton-Superman Mode: What does that mean?
· Protecting your castle: What are local firewalls and how can you use them?
· All my data deleted or locked out? Ransomware? Where do you back up your data?
· What your search engines know about you and how they use it? Incognito mode on: Why would I do that?
· What do you share online all the time (through your browser, but also through LinkedIn)?
