Panel Debates Online Privacy Existence

Share

About 50 souls bravely traipsed to Webtrends after work on the first day of summer and they were rewarded with stimulating discussion and great Widmer Brothers beer.

Our panel was moderated by John Hartman(Evergreen Branded Media, @feedia), and included Aaron Hockley (Hockley Photography, @ahockley), Amanda Mayhew (Ethics Point), Christina Avrevalo (IDExperts), and Marshall Kirkpatrick (RWW, @marshallk) as participants. You can read more about them in our earlier post .

The meeting ran about 1.5 hours, longer than epxected, and people were still asking questions one on one after the panel ended. The range of subjects covered was wide but some of the discussion surrounded:

  • Privacy versus ID protection (anonymity)
  • Conflating online privacy and ID protection
  • The inability to anonymize data/the ability to de-anonymize data (a’la the AOL record fiasco)
  • OpenID
  • OAuth
  • Corporate privacy policies
  • Web services privacy policies
  • Recent research demonstrating young people acre as much as older people about privacy
  • European versus American concepts of privacy
  • Privacy paranoia

You can follow the entire thread of the conversation as it was live-tweeted by @carribugbee on @socialmediaPDX or by searching the hashtag #smcpdx for the date of June 21.

Amanda Mayhew mentioned two sources of information that many attendees were interested in researching further. Amanda sent the following:

Is There Any Online Privacy? June 21st SMC Meeting

Share

Privacy online is the hot topic of the day….er, month….well, at least the last year and maybe since Scott McNealy declared privacy dead in 1999. Privacy has been on the losing end of the stick ever since. Mark Zuckerberg said essentially the same thing in January 2010 and Apple/ATT have made a privacy mess with their new iPad, exposing names and account information on highly placed politicians and celebrities. Even Steve Jobs is taking a whack at redefining privacy.

Our panel on June 21 has the experience to give us a view from four different perspectives. They’ve spent years working and living online in one form or another.

  • Marshall Kirkpatrick follows tech subjects from ReadWriteWeb and has a distinct take on the privacy issue after covering how the industry struggles with the idea.
  • Aaron Hockley lives part of his life online, especially the growing business part that includes Hockley Photography, and can give us a complete view of how privacy hides and exposes a growing business operation.
  • Christine Arevalo will give us the view from ID Experts, a company built to prevent and repair data breaches for individuals and families, and companies in healthcare, financial services and other industries, as well as government agencies and universities in the public sector.
  • Amanda Mayhew, Corporate Secretary, General Counsel and Privacy Officer from EthicsPoint, a services company enabling small businesses up to Fortune 100 corporations to identify, investigate, and manage code of conduct issues that may affect customers or violate required compliance regulations.
  • John Anthony Hartman, Partner / Transmedia Producer at Evergreen Branded Media, is our moderator and will use his personal knowledge of dealing with privacy issues to guide the discussion.

RSVP to Upcoming and let us know you are coming.

You bring the hot questions.  Taplister* is bringing the cold beer courtesy of Widmer Brothers*.
