You might have heard people say, "I don't care if I get hacked, I have nothing to hide online anyway." During this symposium will show you why that's a bit like saying, "I don't mind if I leave my front door wide open; I have nothing to steal!" There are many risks that come with a casual attitude towards online privacy and security. We're talking about identity theft (and why that’s not just a plot twist in a spy movie), AI's growing influence (spoiler alert: it's not always benevolent), and the sneaky ways big tech companies use your data to make a buck (or a billion). Knowing this, what's still stopping people from safeguarding their online activities effectively? During this interactive symposium, our three renowned guest speakers will try to answer this and other related questions from different academic perspectives (Law, Communication and Psychology).

Privacy means having spaces in which you can be yourself. Spaces in which you can hide, when necessary, or simply to withdraw for a moment from the scrutiny of others. Everyone has something to hide, at least from some people, some of the time. But the digital age offers ever more opportunities for others to seek information about you, and makes it ever harder for you to hide. Are there still spaces left in an all-connected world where you don’t have to fear that information about you might be used, by someone, at some point, to your detriment? If we want to preserve some breathing space for living in the digital age, privacy remains vital. The law plays an important role in this, but it is in many ways outdated. And the law is not enough – other protection mechanisms are equally important, starting with awareness. In which directions can we seek to preserve a livable level of privacy protection?
