Session Information

Privacy and security aren't what they used to be. With advancements in technology, enhanced GPS capabilities and smartphones with built-in GPS, managing privacy and security is a fulltime job. It is vital that we understand what kind of data can be broadcast and what we can do to protect ourselves, our families and our companies. Geotagging adds geographical identification to photographs, video, websites and SMS messages. It's the equivalent of adding a 10-digit grid coordinate to everything posted on the internet allowing random people to track an individual's location.
