Mobile Ventures’ Identity and Privacy Management

Friday, March 11
3:45PM - 4:45PM

Hilton Austin Downtown
Salon B
500 E 4th St

Disruptive innovation has accelerated entrepreneurship but challenged identity and privacy management. Privacy practices that lack transparency or accountability may invite regulatory scrutiny, increase consumer distrust, and undermine competitiveness. A range of mobile ventures have built business on better privacy management to mine and monetize user data. Yet, too much disclosure may decrease data sharing. The public discourse has been dominated by the consumer side of the story, centering on a privacy paradox as users trade privacy for service. Moving beyond, this panel adopts a producer’s perspective with speakers from the public, private, advocacy and education sectors.
