Privacy and Security


Join Tess Wilson (Library Freedom Project) for an introduction to online privacy in the digital age. We live in an era of data breaches and constant surveillance. Learn how to keep your data safe and how best to encourage library users to do the same. We'll consider the risks versus rewards of common internet browsing behavior and navigate best practices for public computer labs, mobile phones, and personal browsing. 


*This is an intermediate webinar, best suited for staff who feel comfortable in the digital work space or those who regularly instruct or assist patrons with computer use.*
