Aware of the cyber-communication hegemony, Hadi puts together an interactive talk that will question the hidden flaws and breaches of our day to day use and presence in the online world. In an attempt to shine the light on some practices we often wrongly perceive as harmless, the talk will highlight computer security issues (hacking, phishing, viruses, hoaxes, cyber-bullying), and present numerous means on how to bypass and get over them. Relying on his experience in the handling of events, Hadi brings in practical and essential tips on how to convey the best image of our not-so-virtual persona, through featuring Internet savoir-vivre and savoir-faire (copyright, email practices, social media). Not being a technical talk, but one aimed at enhancing our life in the cyberspace, both mobile users and IT professional geeks will equally enjoy the astonishing real life stories that will be conducting this visual presentation of social (not)working.
