Presentation: Security, Privacy and Anonymity; Choose All Three by Ben Dechrai

This presentation is designed to identify how users can protect their security, privacy and anonymity when operating online, and also when they can't. With this understanding, developers can actively contribute towards their users' online protection through conscious data use and storage.

This talk will cover topics such as TOR, Google Analytics, logging, authentication mechanisms and more.


After a quick pack up, we head to the nearest eating establishment for food, drinks and networking.
