During "Sex, Lies, and Cookies: Web Privacy EXPOSED!", panelists look into the world of data collection and privacy on the internet, asking tough questions about what “tracking” really entails. The discussion focuses on how data collection is integrated into the current structure of the web, and what (if anything) people can do to make informed choices about how they allow their information to be used. Moderated by Andy Kahl, Ghostery’s product manager, the panel includes Lydia Parnes (former director, Bureau of Consumer Protection at FTC), Christopher Soghoian (graduate fellow at Center for Applied Cybersecurity Research), Lorrie Cranor (associate professor of Computer Science and Engineering, Carnegie Mellon), and Berin Szoka (founder, TechFreedom).
