SOLD OUT: What Your Sensors Say About You

Mobile sensors are everywhere. They’re on our smartphones, our tablets and our wearables. They help our devices to detect movement, sense changes in pressure and notice when other devices are nearby.

The data they provide help us to enjoy richer and more personalised apps. But what are the risks to our phones, and the information that lies within them?

Discover how these sensors may introduce new security risks to phone users, and make it more complicated to manage them. You will need to bring a fully charged mobile device with you to this workshop.
