Our Next Event:

Who's Stalking You?

Wed 25th Feb, 7:00 for 7:30pm Bournemouth University, Room TBC

Synopsis

The risks from Tweeting and Social Media, from a potential stalker using free open source software! Genuine case studies will be discussed.

The aim of this work was to determine how much information could be obtained about an individual using only social networking sites and a number of freely available tools. The results were: home address, pictures of the individual, their friends and family, and most worrying of all, their routine daily movements. Most teenagers have a "profile" on a number of social networking sites, such as Facebook or Twitter, and use them without realizing how much they are revealing about themselves.
