Good day everyone, today is the first day here with Ken in semana i. We began our day with a group talk with Dave Cormier. We are learning about our security on the internet. Mostly the questions that we asked were mostly about what we can do to protect ourselves. If you want to see the talk here is the video:

So, I’m going to talk about the things that I learned in this talk. whether  you like or not it is practically impossible to not be on the internet. One way or another you will end up on the internet. It can be possible now but in the future it will probably not be.

A good thing to do is to google yourself and see if what came up is what you like to be known as. Maybe nothing came up, that might be a good thing or a bad thing depending on who you are. Let’s say for example that you want to apply for a job and you are competing with someone else for that post. Well if the company googles you, they will probably choose the person that has a positive image online rather than the person that is whining online or simply doesn’t have an image online.

Many people suffer by cat fishing and this is a very common thing. For those people that don’t know what cat fishing is, it’s when someone steals your identity online to take money away from people that you know. There really is no solution to this because a hacker will get in if he really wants to. We should  just have different passwords for every social account and just change it again when we find out that our account got hacked.

Be careful with what you look like online
