The Illusion of Privacy: Cyber Security and the Digital World

There is no place more strewn with criminals than the Internet.

They prey on the innocent and influence the naïve. They fool you into believing your dreams can be achieved so long as you do what they tell you to do. And despite that, we openly share our most intimate facts on social media, in emails and on websites. All that information is gathered and processed in dossiers on everyone. Many of these data collections are in the hands of thieves and terrorists who easily learn what you like, where you are and what you do. Can you stop it? Can you protect yourself? Explore answers to these questions and much more with a panel of experts, author Douglas Wood, Wall Street Journal reporter Suzanne Vranica and Michael Tiffany, CEO of White Ops, a cyber security company.
