Living in a digital safer world means firstly understanding and finding the rules of appropriate online behavior to defend our privacy and reputation on the Internet. Today we could say that we are what we are sharing. The Internet remembers everything - preserving everything we write, we comment; all the content that we share. 

This webinar aims to focus on instruments and tools such as software, apps, service settings that we are often using without knowledge and awareness in order to help us make the best use of the Internet. Our online identity is shaped by the way we use digital tools and in order to benefit the most from the opportunities of digital tools, we need to know how they function.
