Social media has become increasingly prevalent in our lives. It's how we connect with our family, friends and the world. But in having a social media account we are also sharing our private information for all to see. It has come to a point where we are ignoring our own security and privacy to have these Apps because we don't want to lose their social aspects.

This workshop will empower you to take control of your security and privacy when it comes to social media. We will discuss tips and tricks to lock-down your accounts to your level of comfort. We also want to make sure that you understand the risks involved with having these accounts.

This event will be co-hosted by UCSC student and Information Security Assistant, Magdalena Ramirez and UCSC ITS Compliance Coordinator, Cecilia Carrillo.
