Technology has improved the way people communicate and socialize, but it has also created a way for hackers to infiltrate the most personal aspects of technology users. This stern warning was delivered by leading experts of cyber security at an event held in the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism.

He explained that the Tor Project was created as a way for all technology users to protect their information, especially when using unsecured connections such as those found in Internet cafes.

Students and faculty members asked several questions about how they can protect themselves, and about how far they should go to protect themselves.
