Digital Equity and Security on the Internet
Not all computer and internet users are equally knowledgeable about how to protect themselves online. The least digitally literate may be at the most risk. Awareness of online threats may not be non-existent or easily forgotten and user training may not account for the unique needs of the unconnected.
Issues to be discussed include:
- What happens in real life when we bring vulnerable populations online?
- What should people be taught?
- Can our technology be better designed to protect those that need it most?
