Speaking at SxSW 2014 on Social Identity – thank you!

Social Identity in the world

I was recently notified I will be speaking at SxSW 2014 on Social Identity. I just wanted to thank everyone that took a few minutes to click and vote to make it a reality.

For those that need a recap of my topic, here is Social Identity – Public, Personal and Private:

As you use more social networking sites, your social identity becomes a blend of publicly shared and personal information.
Based on the upcoming book, see firsthand how innocuous things you share can be used to gain access to your private data and learn tricks to block those attempts.

We will explore the different levels of information and how to segregate the data. Learn techniques to isolate your private banking, credit card and health information, while still feeling comfortable sharing on public and personal sites.

By splitting how you participate in the online world of social networks, communities and even online finance you build a virtual wall.

We will also discuss the creation of a private and also a fake persona to help strengthen the barrier of your private identity and prevent identity theft.

This Future15 type session will be on overview of the book with the same title being finished (in time for SxSW). I have presented excerpts at other conferences in preparation of the chance to speak at SxSW 2014.

With over 3000 submissions I am honored to take part in not just attending SxSW again, but presenting.
