Episode Description

Assaulters and stalkers are increasingly using technologies to target, surveil, and attack their victims. IoT tech in particular is increasingly being used. • What types of IoT tech are being used to track down and ultimately attack the targeted victims? • What types of popular, tiny, inexpensive IoT devices are increasingly used by assaulters and stalkers for surveilling and then tracking down victims to abuse and assault? • In what ways are a variety of different types of IoT tech devices being used for these nefarious purposes? • How common are these types of attacks where IoT is used to facilitate these crimes? • In what ways do IoT devices provide a sense of false security, that then actually makes weaponizing them to commit crimes easier? • Why don’t more of the victims know that their IoT devices are being used by abusers and stalkers to track them down? • What aren’t there more publicized criminal court cases for these incidents where IoT tech was used to facilitate attacks on the targeted victims? • What can people do to keep from being victims of assaults through the IoT devices they use? Tune in to hear Adam Dodge, founder of Ending Technology-Enabled Abuse (EndTAB), provide answers to these and many more questions, along with valuable insights and advice.

Data Security and Privacy with the Privacy Professor

New shows the first Saturday of each month at 8 AM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Business Channel

There are more information security and privacy threats than ever before. As more technologies emerge, more surveillance tactics 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 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 and news, with fascinating guests, to help all organizations, and the general public, understand what they need to do to mitigate these risks.
