User Data, Trust, and Transparency: SOCAP Podcast Money + Meaning Episode 2.4

As user data collection has evolved from web data to mobile to ubiquitous environmental sensing, important questions are being raised about data usage, consumer privacy, and corporate transparency. Topics discussed include: Who owns the vast amounts of personal data that are being collected today? Is privacy becoming something that only the rich can afford? Has user behavior created an economic incentive for companies to care about data and privacy breaches? How are governments attempting to regulate “big data”? This discussion features Erika Karp, the founder and CEO of Cornerstone Capital, an impact investing firm, Sonia Katyal, the Chancellor’s Professor of Law at UC Berkeley and the Co-Director of the Berkeley Center for Law & Technology, and Timothy Morey, the VP of Strategy for frog design, a global design and strategy consulting firm.
