The buzz: “The most promising privacy thing is stupid phones. I’m dumping all my smart phones.” (John McAfee)

We as individuals have welcomed Internet-connected, often mobile devices to help us make daily decisions.

But whether you’re simply asking a Chatbot for directions or researching products online, you are leaving digital breadcrumbs. What’s the big deal?

Advertisers, manufacturers, and others are eager to capture and analyze so they can build detailed profiles about you and your lifestyle.

Do you care who sees and uses your private data? If not, should you?

The experts speak.

Brian Kilcourse, RRS Research: “If we’re going to be connected, we’ve got to be protected…” (Barack Obama).

Frank Diana, TCS: ““Simply put, it is possible to have convenience if you want to tolerate insecurity, but if you want security, you must be prepared for inconvenience.” (General Benjamin W. Chidlaw)

Larry Stolle, SAP: “The way I see it, if you want to see the rainbow you have to put up with the rain!” (Dolly Parton)
