More from this event →

Does talk of digital security feel like it's over your head? Wondering exactly what happens when you send an email, who might be reading it, and how? Breaking News’ Andy Boyle, stand-up comic and full stack developer, is here to help, with a brief overview of how online communications travel, and where common fail points exist. You'll walk away confident that you have the background to fully engage in conversations about internet security, data privacy and other things we should know but haven't really learned. If there's time, we'll introduce each audience member to their handler at the NSA.
