Author Event: Jorge Rudko - Hacked Minds

Hacked Minds is a short book of nine chapters and an epilogue that succinctly and in a thought--‐provoking manner reviews and analyses features and trends in our modern digital age, pinpointing the issues we face, challenging some of our assumptions, and alerting us to how much our privacy may be at risk. It then provides guidelines on commonsense strategies to use, as well as encouraging the proper use of digital power, but guiding us how to avoid key pitfalls.

Jorge is also an ordained minister, a certified premarital and marriage Prepare-Enrich professional. As a qualified Crown associate, he teaches family finances.
