Dark forces conspire online to undermine privacy, compromise accounts, stalk, troll, and creep us out. Libraries have a longstanding tradition of protecting their users’ privacy and confidentiality, but often fail to take basic steps to protect patrons using their public access computers. In this session you will learn how online surveillance works, what can be done to better safeguard public computers, and the basics of digital self defense. We will also discuss legal threats to our digital rights and the importance of being anonymous in an online surveillance state. Together we can put the patron back in Patronus.
