Five Simple Steps for Teaching Better Online Privacy
Presenter: Jessamyn West
Thursday, July 16, 2020

Jessamyn West has been helping people with their computers in rural Vermont for 15 years and she's created a simple privacy toolkit to help people understand the complicated world of online privacy. She'll share her talk and the resources she uses to support the talk so that more librarians can help their patrons stay safer and more confident online.
