Ethical Market Models in the Personal Data Ecosystem
11:00 AM - 11:15 AM
LEVEL: Beginner

I present alternatives to the current split between “do not track” and “business as usual” where all companies get to track all data about us generated via our data. I outline three ethical market models within the personal data ecosystem. These are presented within the context of an overall landscape that includes accountability frameworks, and systems of governance including peer-to-peer, legal frameworks, code via standards and Identifier systems.

What can you do to keep it safe from malicious thieves and attackers ? This talk will cover the lifecycle of an average consumer’s PII (personally identifiable information), from its entry into a website to its deletion from the site’s servers.
