VIDEO: Online privacy, freedom and security (in the era of transparency)


Last week, I was lucky enough to be invited to speak at a BBC social media conference, run by the BBC College of Journalism.

BBC Breakfast business presenter Stephanie McGovern chaired a debate with me, James Ball (@jamesrbuk), the Guardian data journalist, and Martha Gill (@martha_gill), a journalist with the Telegraph and New Statesman.]

I found the session pretty interesting, and I hope you do too.

Check out the video of the session above, but and ignore any bits which say that I’m a journalist *at* “The Independent”. That’s a mistake by the video producers.

It should just say that I *am* independent. Small “i” not a big “I”. Easy mistake to make I guess.

If you want to see other videos from the event, check out the YouTube playlist. There’s lots of interesting content there for people who are interested in social media marketing, as well as my session which touched on privacy and security.

If you’re interested in having me speak at your event, you can read more here.

    Lol, wasn’t surprised to hear that.

    Been using Keepass, so great. Also blocks brute forcing on the GUI. Also been using 2 factor on every site I use since it came out. (Banks, paypal, dropbox, google and facebook)

      Glad you liked the video.

      And yes, KeePass (and other programs like it) do a great job.
