Think you have nothing to hide?  Guess again!

Admit it: you don’t really read the endless terms and conditions connected to every website you visit, phone call you make or app you download. But every day, billion-dollar corporations are learning more about your interests, your friends and family, your finances, and your secrets…and are not only selling it to the highest bidder, but freely sharing it with the government.

Imagine if someone had access to your Gmail or Facebook accounts? How scary would it be if every place you went and every word you said was being recorded?

This isn’t science fiction. It’s happening now, AND YOU AGREED TO ALL OF IT!

In this interactive and humorous show, digital rights and privacy expert Cullen Hoback takes students down the Internet rabbit hole.

Using the social media of students in the audience, Hoback reveals how oversharing on services like FaceBook, Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, Yik Yak, etc. can cost you BIG TIME in the future.

Hoback exposes what corporations and the government are taking from you every time you go online, and the alarming threat this poses to civil liberties. Most importantly, he shows how to protect yourself and fight back!

Part lecture, part Internet magic show, students will think twice before they click “agree” after this hour long experience.

When Cullen comes to your school, you will:

•Discover what you’ve really agreed to
•Learn how to better protect yourself online
•Get involved in the digital privacy movement
•Hear wild behind-the scenes stories of what happens when you stand up to BIG DATA

Cullen was great to work with and one of the better pros I’ve encountered:
-Showed up early to set up his MAC equipment as requested
-Pleasant demeanor
-Spoke well
-Stayed after to answer questions

His presentation was well thought out and organized:
-He was obviously an expert on the topic
-Explained things in a way so all could understand
-He gave his opinion without making others feel threatened or possibly insecure about their own

Cullen was personally one of my favorites and was also well received by the people in attendance.

Cullen was GREAT! I really enjoyed it. The presentation was very provocative and so real. We hope he had a good experience with Tri Delta and would certainly recommend him to other groups.
Thank you for working with us,

Cullen was great to work with at Pitt Greensburg. His talk was engaging for our students and the feedback was phenomenal.  Even afterwards there have been students talking about it throughout campus, and those students that didn’t go feel like the missed a worthwhile program.  I would recommend Cullen for any campus.

We extremely enjoyed Cullen Hoback’s performance! Not only was it informative, but it was hilarious as well! We had a large age range and received very positive feedback from them as well. It was very enlightening to see our very own students’ profiles and what they can do to better protect themselves.
