With the increased adoption of hardware and software that leverage location based services, geolocation security has had its fair share in the media. Often, geolocation has been covered in the context of privacy ramifications, mostly with a negative (bad) rap pertinent to invasion of privacy. While certainly there are threats to geolocation services turned on in our devices and applications, geolocation can be used for positive (good) purposes.
In the teach Security part of this presentation, the good and the bad of geolocation will be covered along with how to make sure that one does not inadvertently and unknowingly disclose their location.
In the teach Christ part of the presentation, Mano will cover the Godly aspects of geolocation, as it applied to the omnipresence of God and how Jesus can find and meet you wherever you are.
