Workshop 4 – Protecting your digital identity
What is the meaning behind a digital Identity? Is it just a concept to define a virtual world, or much more than that? Digital Identity is a part of our real identity, which can impact – positively or negatively – on our personal or professional life. Today, we are all our own brand (personal branding). Everything we do on the Web and on Social Media, and the way we succeed to manage digitalized information, are part of what we are and how people can see us… If not well managed, all of this can have an impact on every aspect of our lives.
