The Churchill Club Presents 'The Collection of Online Consumer Data: The Good, The Bad, and The Unknown'

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - Jan 19, 2012) - The Churchill Club, Silicon Valley's premier business and technology forum, will host a dinner event on Tuesday, January 24, 2012, titled "The Collection of Online Consumer Data: The Good, The Bad, and The Unknown."

The event will feature a provocative panel of thought leaders discussing the growing tension between the ever-increasing amounts of data online and consumer and regulatory concerns for privacy. Topics to be addressed include:

  • How are individuals shaping their own online personas as well as those of friends, relatives and total strangers?
  • What are the technologies that companies and governments are using to find information about people online?
  • What options exist for individuals who want to control what is collected about them and how it is used?
  • What is the potential for industry to leverage the growing wealth of available data, while striking the right balance between innovation and regulation?

A wide range of perspectives will be represented on the panel, with senior thought leaders from the ACLU of Northern California, Echoecho Media, Future of Privacy Forum, Microsoft Corp. and UC Berkeley. This program is presented in observation of Data Privacy Day, which was created to build awareness about privacy issues and help people navigate them.
