Security and Privacy in Social Networks

#sxsw #Security

This panel will explore the interplay between user privacy, social networking sites, law enforcement, and the teams of people that are tasked with both enforcing and protecting the users of these sites. We'll discuss best practices for protecting your company and your users and if you are a frequent user of social networking sites, you can learn how minimize the information that can be exposed about you in your travels online. We'll show you how we fight for the users, every day.
