Join us at this upcoming Cyber Security POD Hack, where event participants will hear from an expert on how your Digital Footprint is made and what issues you can face by sharing your personal information on Digital media.<br><br>The aim of the workshop is to: <ul><li>Think like a hacker and collect information</li><li>Think how you could use the information to undertake a cyber attack</li><li>What steps can you take to reduce the risk of a human hacker attack</li></ul> <b>Background<br>​</b>​​​​​​Digital media gives people endless ways to express themselves, state their opinions and connect with friends, family and groups that interest them. Doing all these things has become so easy that people can forget that every website they click, every comment they post, and every video they upload might leave a trail of information – a digital footprint or digital reputation – that leads back to them. As it can sometimes be a complex process to have website content removed, what goes online usually stays online. Ideally a digital footprint should leave a positive impression of behavior, beliefs, interests and respect for others.<br><br>How Your Digital Footprint is made: <ul><li>A profile on a social networking site like Facebook or Instagram</li><li>Photographs that you, your family or friends have posted online</li><li>Anything you have written or that has been written about you on blogs, discussion boards or in articles</li><li>System log in and log outs</li><li>Visits to websites</li><li>Participation in online auctions</li><li>Access or created files</li><li>Emails or chat messages</li></ul> <p><b>Resources needed: internet enabled device, e.g. mobile phone, tablet, laptop.</b></p> <p><i>This event is sponsored by the Victorian Government and is part of the Victorian Government’s <a href="" target="_blank">Digital Innovation Festival</a> – two weeks of events and exhibitions promoting innovation in Victoria.</i></p> <p><b><img alt="User-added image" src=";oid=00D90000000o5NE&amp;lastMod=1565917527000"></img></b></p>
