Ever wonder about the extent of facial recognition? How much is really known about our web browsing on a mobile device? What marketing and social media companies really now about your company’s business practices?  This realistic understanding of security implications, especially in a time of BYOD (bring your own device), social media and global interconnected-ness, is a crucial skill in the career development of any security professional. This presentation will provide the knowledge and background to safeguard our companies, employers and assets more thoroughly and responsibly.
