Online services, smartphones, and other new technologies offer many benefits but also pose many privacy and security risks, such as tracking, identity theft, fraud, ransomware, and account hacking. Each week, we will explore a specific security/privacy topic chosen by study group participants, including associated risks and what you can do to protect yourself with hands- on activities. Topics might include: targeted advertising, email phishing scams, anonymity online, location tracking, social media privacy, strong passwords and account security, etc.

The study group is led by Dr. Florian Schaub, Assistant Professor in the University of Michigan School of Information and College of Engineering, and Allison McDonald, PhD Candidate in Computer Science and Engineering. Dr. Schaub and his research lab investigate people’s privacy and security behaviors and ways to make it easier for people to protect their privacy and security.

The study group will be held on Thursdays from October 8 through November 19.

Pre-registration is required via the OLLI website or phone. A link to access the study group will be e-mailed to you approximately one week prior to the first session.
