NW3C Webinar: Removing Your Personal Identifying Information
April 30, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EDT
Everyone is at risk for identity theft, online and physical stalking, and harassment. Beyond social media, your public records are for sale, so your home address and assets are easily located through simple online searches. This course provides a through description of how and where your data is stored and how to remove it.
In this introductory hands-on class, participants will review a case study detailing how a fraudulent and nefarious actor obtains personal identifying information and how it can be used against you. You will learn “Opt Out” procedures for public service and security personnel and explore the tools and methodologies used to operate discreetly on the Internet. Upon completion of the class, field investigators will be able to identify how private lives and public information are available through websites, social networks, and “Invisible Web” sources; and will have the ability to protect their privacy by implementing basic security practices online, at home, and on social media.
