We're joined on Monday at 1pm by Misha Glenny, broadcaster and author of numerous books including McMafia - Seriously Organised Crime and his latest DarkMarket: CyberThieves, CyberCops and You.

The benefits of living in a digital, globalised society are clearly enormous, but so too are the dangers. The world has become a law enforcer's nightmare and every criminal's dream. We bank online, shop online, date, learn, work and live online. But have the institutions that keep us safe on the streets learned to protect us in the burgeoning digital world? Have we become complacent about our personal security? sharing our thoughts, beliefs and the details of our daily lives with anyone who cares to relieve us of them?

Misha Glenny has gone behind the scenes in the murky world of cybercrime and has talked to the criminals, the police and the government security forces for his new book DarkMarket: CyberThieves, CyberCops and You. He is excellently placed to advise us on how to keep our personal details from being hacked online. Join Misha for a live webchat on Monday 3rd October at 1pm or send in your question to him in advance to this thread.
