PRIVACY, PIRACY IN THE AGE OF BIG DATA. 

The same social media platforms that you use to keep up with friends and family – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube – have given rise to a vast global cyber criminal network ranging from cryptojacking to botnets for hire – used by cyber criminals around the world to earn nearly $3.25 billion annually by exploiting popular social platforms.

Experts will discuss policy on privacy and piracy while we use, and monetization of consumer online data, as well as their harms and impacts on communities of color, and the need for legislation to provide a clear regulatory path and to protect consumers from harm.
