Interact With Information Security Experts Live on BrightTALK

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - August 7, 2009) -

WHAT: Data and Privacy in Web 2.0 Summit hosted by BrightTALK™

Web 2.0 services have been rapidly growing because of the value they offer to businesses and individuals alike. However, with so much information at stake and so little control of employees and customer activities online, companies need to ensure consumer and businesses' data are secure and safe from misuse and malware-related data breach.

This free online summit will feature live, interactive presentations by academics, legal and IT leaders sharing on topics such as avoiding privacy pitfalls in online social communities, minimizing data leakage, legal issues with Web 2.0 and privacy policies.
