Just over three years ago — a lifetime in the world of tech and privacy — Corporate Directors Forum (CDF) hosted its first “Big Think,” Invasion of the Data Miners. Being tracked 24/7 was still a new concept to most. How quaint that event now seems!

In this Big Think sequel, we will look at how far things have morphed and escalated in three short years.

With the ever-expanding reach of goliaths like Google and Facebook, the behind-the-scenes impact of “Search Engine Manipulation Effect” (aka autocomplete) can condition and manipulate our thinking on politics, news/current events, what we like, what we buy – everything! We’ll look at these and other techniques used to influence us, in ways most of us are unaware.

In addition to discussing how Big Tech tracks us, our state-of-the-art experts, will also cover:

Why privacy is such a critical concern for companies — as a core trust and brand issue. Must we trade our privacy for access to the internet? Who owns and controls your information? Can you regain control of your digital dossier?

What we can DO to reasonably secure ourselves, and our businesses, from revealing more than we want? What are the coming trends we need to know about to stay a step ahead, in an environment that changes daily?

Join us for this insightful and important 2017 “Privacy 2.0” update on how to wisely move in the era of brazen Big Tech and Big Data!
