Live Hack: Understanding Metadata

Digital Rights Watch presents a live hack event: how secure is your personal information? Join Amy Gray and Vanessa Toholka as they delve into the metadata footprint of former Senator Scott Ludlam and former President of the Australian Human Rights Commission Gillian Triggs, to discover how easy it is to derive sensitive facts from the digital traces we leave on the open web. Learn more about metadata retention, the impact on your human rights and what you can do to protect yourself.

This is a free event. No bookings are required.
