Episode Description

This is the third in a series of shows about personal data privacy and security risks involved with cannabis sales. We discuss wide-ranging issues involved with cannabis dispensaries and online cannabis sales. We also discuss some of the ways in which smartphones, apps, and other tech can bring risks to those using cannabis. • Where is cannabis legal throughout the world? • How are cannabis laws creating stigmas for those using medical cannabis? • How are the wide number of personal data items collected from cannabis customers and patients put at risk? • Is 90% of stolen cannabis patient/customer data really taken by insiders? • Are patients using THC at more or less risk of data theft, or privacy harms, than those using CBD? What are the differences? Tune in to hear Rebecca discuss the answers to these questions and more with Michelle Dumay, cannabis industry privacy and security expert, advocate and advisor.

There are more information security and privacy threats than ever before. As more technologies emerge, more big data analytics are used, and more artificial intelligence systems are deployed, cybersecurity and privacy risks grow exponentially. Rebecca has spent her entire career working to improve information security and privacy protections, by not only raising awareness of the issues within businesses and other types of organizations, but also by raising the awareness of these risks in the public and helping them to understand how to better protect their own personal data, allowing them to take their privacy protections into their own hands. Rebecca offers you information about these existing and emerging security and privacy risks and provides fresh insights into the impacts of exploiting these risks, and gives guidance, tips, expert advice, news, with fascinating guests, to help all organizations, and the general public, understand what they need to do to mitigate these risks.
