I am working on a virtual class for my library about internet safety tips. I want to include a bit on the EFF security surveillance plan viewable here: https://ssd.eff.org/en/module/your-security-plan
I plan to give short, simple answers to the 5 questions. I am stuck on #2 - about how to give a clear list of who we need to protect our online assets from.
Do you have suggestions?
- What do I want to protect? [i will give a list of assets: emails, contacts, banking records, location, etc]
2. Who do I want to protect it from? So far I have: predatory wi-fi, browser trackers, people who might use my computer/phone/tablet, phishing attempts, companies I give my info to (apps, subscriptions, websites, exercise devices, etc).
How bad are the consequences if I fail? [It depends on their opinion: I will point out that the loss of emails/contacts might be not important to some and considered worse for others but the loss of banking records is likely very bad for everyone]
How likely is it that I will need to protect it? [again, it depends on you, do you have a lot of assets, do you do a lot of online banking or shopping, have you been stalked online?]
How much trouble am I willing to go through to try to prevent potential consequences? [this is something they have to answer for themselves - example, I am willing to have very secure passwords for banking records but will use easier to remember passwords for my social media apps]
Thanks for any help/suggestions!
