Privacy – it’s your Right
We live in a digital world, where daily life may involve the convenience of mobile apps, social media, and online commerce. Unfortunately data breaches and hacking happen with little consequence, and advertisers monetize our digital behavior without our knowledge or control. As a business executive in the tech space, I recognize the tremendous benefits and conveniences of the digital world. Yet we are also paying a huge cost for our most precious information to be stored elsewhere, and the consequences of poor security are high. Our government has an obligation to make certain our data is secure, provide simpler and easier mechanisms for us to understand who is using our accessing our data, and to opt out if we choose. I am particularly interested in protecting children by enabling parents to have stronger controls over their kids’ digital footprint.
