Everyone is mining your data.

In the next minute, Google will receive over 2 million search queries, Facebook users will share nearly 1 million updates, and over 200 million emails will be sent.  Large scale data-mining and analytics have enabled data brokers, like Acxiom, Datalogix, and Epsilon, to build detailed profiles on you and over 700 million other consumers.

According to the Wall Street Journal, privacy concerns are shaking up the $120B online advertising business, and the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation (ITIF) reports that the lack of trust in U.S. networks may cost us between $22 to $35 billion dollars.

As the loss of privacy in the digital age becomes more rampant, entrepreneurs are fighting back - securing your data, protecting your web traffic, and encrypting your communications. Will they succeed, or do we live in the age where privacy is forever lost?  Join us on Tuesday, October 15th to find out.
