Lastly, Mr. Micabalo talked about Email Encryption and gave a workshop on using PGP, which can be used for encrypting or securing emails. He also talked mobile safety and chat safety.

Many of the participants asked questions and clarifications throughout the whole training. Some of the common questions that were asked were clarifications on the applications and usage of the programs, specifically if it is usable on a certain situation. Other questions were asked concerning Social Engineering, and on how to be able to control and reduce the risks of it.
