Securi-Tay IV aims to provide a platform for knowledge sharing, while bringing students and industry professionals together and be a fun and engaging conference at the same time.

Talks presented by MWR

Topic: Watch you lookin’ at?
Speakers: Jahmel Harris and Owen Evans

Smart watches allow us to view notifications and other important information at a glance, removing the need to interact directly with our smart phones. Android wearables build on top of Android, but how does it work and is our data really safe? In the talk, we’ll discuss how wearables and smartphones share information and the implications of wearing our data on our sleeves (or wrists).
