When considering cybersecurity, the technology that enables Second Life can be thought of as a chain of related systems, starting with your personal computer and working through various software and network layers that enable presence, communications, and amazing capabilities in a rich virtual world space. This presentation walks through each link in that chain and considers some reasonable measures for security, safety, and privacy along the way. Also covered are larger cybersecurity issues like cyberkinetics, digital currencies, and human-computer interaction.
