What would your online profile look like?
~ episode 1 – 5 ~ next >>
A MINI-SERIES ON CYBER SECURITY
According to criminologist Marleen Weulen Kranenbarg Online criminals are much more intelligent than the traditional ones. It is not enough to protect ourselves with firewalls and antivirus software. We need to be much more aware of our online behavior. Therefore we created this online mini-series, that you can follow every day for the upcoming week..
WHAT WOULD YOUR PERSONALITY LOOK LIKE, IF IT WAS ONLY BASED ON YOUR ONLINE PRESENCE?
Imagine your new personal profile was created by combining all the things you wrote on your computer (your emails, search queries, FB posts). Which of the characteristics of your personality would be missing? Would the new profile show your insecurities, your sadness, your fears? Maybe so, because when we express ourselves, unless you are an actor, we almost always show how we realy feel.
That might be the same with expressing ourselves online. We just have to learn a new code: the new online meta code of behavior. We have to learn how to distinguish different types of behavior and make the right choices. We need to be able to see what is naïve and what is prosperus.
Specialists & scientists
