Feeding Your Mind
SOCIALLY CHECKED IN
We used to comment on the weather and now with the proliferation of social media, we comment on new profile pics and status updates. We all want to feel needed and loved, to feel special or to show we are different, but how many people stop and think about what they publish online? How many know what the risks and consequences truly are? Find out the value of a personal online profile and how the information that you share can be sold by you, by an organisation or by a hacker.
WILL ROBOTS STEAL MY JOB?
There is a real love/hate relationship with computers and robots and there is an ongoing debate as to whether or not they are here to save us or enslave us. At least one third of the information learnt in the first year of an IT degree will be obsolete by the time you enter the workforce. Find out how much robotics and data analytics have developed over the last 50 years and discover what jobs are safe, what will be obsolete in the next 20 years and what new roles you or your children could be doing.
HOW DATA ANALYTICS SAVED MY MARRIAGE
As a certified geek, I’ve found it difficult to understand relationships and marriage. I’ve done what any other geek would do – use data analytics to understand my wife, how and when I should communicate with her more effectively, and understand why she is reading certain books whereas I’ll happily bury my nose in the latest technical whitepaper for fun. So if you want to be able to understand how data analytics can potentially save your marriage too, then book me for your next presentation.
IDENTITY STALKING – THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE CRIMINAL
Every time we go online, we leave a virtual trail about who we are, what we are doing and potentially where we are going. In this presentation, I will ask for a volunteer to allow me to perform an identity hack on them and show how easy it is for anyone to uncover potentially sensitive information about them and how this can be used against them. It can be a confronting demonstration and my goal is not to scare the audience but to enlighten them about how they can follow some simple steps to be safer online.

Readily available ‘skimming’ devices allow criminals to steal RFID CHIP credit and debit card and Passport information – anywhere, anytime up to 20mt away without ever seeing or touching the card or Passport. The theft is silent, fast, easy and unbelievably LEGAL as it is only gathering and sharing of data not actual cash. Fortunately, guarding against these crimes is even easier. By placing RFIDSHIELD in a wallet or purse or Passport holder, the signals used to steal chip details are blocked. Everyone should protect their cards and identities as once compromised it can have lifelong repercussions.
