Managing your digital footprint
A primer from Dave King of Digitalis (v2)
We all have a digital profile. But do we know the risks this can pose?
In this hands on session – a follow up to May’s event – Pi member, Dave King, will talk about the basics of managing your online profile and exposure to minimise physical, reputational and cyber vulnerabilities (ranging from criminals using data willingly provided by family members on social media to legacy information being kept on file to embarrass people around key appointments).
Dave founded and runs online reputation management and intelligence business Digitalis, a unique technology firm monitoring and mitigating online risk for high-profile political, commercial and private individuals and corporations.
He has advised many global organisations on digital strategies, reputational and cyber risk and co-authored Online Publication Claims: A Practical Guide, the de facto solicitor’s handbook in this area.
He advises on child safety online and his hypothesis on online recruitment by extremists has been pivotal in framing highly influential research by the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change.
"Many threats begin with information available online about you, whether you know it is there or not."
