A joint event between the University of Surrey’s Centre for Cyber Security and the SASIG, the UK’s premier cyber security network.

The way humans interact has been transformed over the last 20 years by social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, WeChat and others.

In this joint event with the University of Surrey, we explored the cybersecurity implications of the far-reaching change brought about by social media. Our expert panel spoke on:

  • What do online social media platforms really know about you and how much control do you have over your digital footprint?
  • What are the personal privacy and security implications of using social media?
  • Is social media part of the critical national infrastructure?
  • How can your presence on social media be utilised by cyber attackers?
  • What are the security implications of the move to introduce one or more metaverse as the next evolution in social media?
