It's easy to lose track of all the information or be overwhelmed with how it might be exposed to unintended uses. In this interactive talk and workshop, cybersecurity expert Allison Bishop will show you some basic math tricks that can help anyone think more systematically about personal cybersecurity and allow you to make more informed decisions around the tradeoffs between your personal security and technological convenience.
