As technological advancements continue to expand the range of information access, issues of privacy and cyber security have risen to the forefront. Technology is only one part of a larger conversation. Looking through a different lens, consider the humans behind the machines. Technology can now be used with unprecedented ease and anonymity as a malicious vehicle to harass, defame and stalk.

This presentation recounts the very personal and in-depth journey of a target of cyberstalking whose efforts to navigate within the system have been met with both successes and failures. Learn the profound impact this journey has had on life online as well as off, catalyzing a shift in perspective from fear to redefining responsible digital citizenship. The conversation will provide new insights into security issues, communication, and business management, as well as the limitations of the systems currently in place.
