Beginning of tab section with 1 tabs. Left and right arrow keys will navigate between tab navigation links.
Technology has changed the way we store our data, communications, activities and memories. Even if you aren’t aware of it, most of us have digital assets of some kind. Digital assets include email accounts, laptops, smartphones,USB thumb drives, cloud accounts, domain registrations, digital photos, social media and even cryptocurrency.
So what happens to these assets if we’re incapacitated or we pass away? How can we make sure that the appropriate people—a spouse, loved one, or executor—can access what they need? What about things you don’t wish to share—whether it's email, a dating profile or certain accounts or documents? And what if some forgotten or abandoned account were hacked? This session is designed to clarify the kinds of information worth protecting, how to protect it and how to make sure the right person has the kind of access you wish.
