POD2112: Brainlink’s Raj Goel on Privacy in the Age of Social Media and Big Data

Since the revelation that Cambridge Analytica harvested data from millions of Facebook accounts, people from Main Street to Capitol Hill are asking what privacy means in the age of social media. Many politicians are calling for new regulations to restrict what information companies can collect from their online users and what they can do with that data. Raj Goel, CTO and co-founder of security MSP Brainlink, and author of “UNPLUGGED Luddites’ Guide to Cybersecurity: What to Teach Your Kids & Grandparents Before They Access the Internet,” joins Pod2112 to discuss how we can regulate how companies gather and use personal data without crippling the ability to gather raw material for beneficial technologies such as Big Data.
