Privacy online is difficult; it is a continual struggle for many. During this webinar, we will touch on privacy settings and policies for many popular social media sites, and then explore the growing issue with big data. Big Data is the term coined to discuss all of the demographic and personal data collected on an individual by companies. This data can be used to make decisions on credit history, health care and more.

The control of this data has been called the civil rights issue of the 21st century. Learn why it’s such a hot button issue, why you and your users should be paying attention and how to protect you and your users’ privacy.
