When Gadgets Betray Us ROBERT VAMOSI
When Gadgets Betray Us
Tuesday, June 21 at 7 PM

Technology is evolving faster than we are. As our mobile phones, mp3 players, cars, and digital cameras become more complex, we understand less about how they actually work and what personal details these gadgets might reveal about us.

Join us for an evening with award-winning journalist and analyst Robert Vamosi - who has been covering digital security issues for more than a decade - as he reveals the dark side of digital capability and convenience. Here are a few examples: hotel-room TV remotes can be used to steal our account information and spy on what we've been watching, toll-booth transponders receive unencrypted EZ Pass or FasTrak information that can be stolen and cloned, and our cars monitor and store data about our driving habits that can be used in court against us.

In When Gadgets Betray Us, Vamosi helps us to better understand - and manage - these very real risks.

Read this, and you'll never again ignore the default security settings on accounts or your devices again. Gadget geeks and lay readers would benefit from Vamosi's information. — James A. Buczynski, Library Journal
