Episode Description

It has been almost three years since Rebecca has done a show answering listener questions; it is time she did another one! In this episode she answers a wide range of questions. Some of the questions include: • Why are location trackers (Apple Airtag, Tile, etc.) bad from a privacy perspective? They aren’t even sending any personal information; just location. Should they be outlawed if they are actually bad? Listen in to hear not only her answer, but how she explains what engineers need to consider in the design of these, and other types of, IoT products. • How do you think the Dobbs decision was leaked last year from the US Supreme Court? Rebecca provides some insightful theories that have not yet been discussed anywhere else! • Some spam blockers, like AOL spam blocker, are not effective against email addresses. How can more email spam be blocked? Rebecca provides some good advice in response. • How can spoofed emails be prevented? Everyone needs to hear Rebecca’s answer to this. • Should spoofed emails be reported? To where? Rebecca provides answers that all listeners, anywhere in the world, can use. Listen in to hear the answers to these, and more, questions. #Privacy #PrivacyManagement #RiskManagement #CyberSecurity #DataSecurity #Cybercrime #PersonalData #Awareness #Education #Spam #Spoofing #Dobbs #DobbsLeak #Government Security #IoT #IoTSecurity #IoTPrivacy #LocationTrackers #IoTAssaults #IoTCrime

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.
