Staying safe online

Maxwell’s Tech Program for Tuesday, May 16, 2017

There are two aspects to online safety: security and privacy. There is overlap between the two, but security refers to the steps you can undertake to keep your machine, your data, and your identity from being attacked or stolen while privacy focuses on how broad an audience you want for information you share online.

Both of these concepts are important, but different individuals will have greater or lesser desires for privacy. Security needs to be high regardless of how much or little privacy you feel you need. This month’s program looks at how to manage both.
