LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BIGtoken® Inc., the first privacy focused, opt-in data marketplace where people own and monetize their data, will host a webinar on Thursday, April 8, 2021 to discuss digital identity and the big question: “How much are you worth?”
Consumers are finally speaking up and taking control. According to a 2019 Pew Research Center study, more than 80% of Americans feel they have very little to no control over the data that is collected on them. This isn’t exactly a new finding. Every day, more people are discovering how much of their day-to-day lives is shared with external parties without their consent. But people are now fighting back. When WhatsApp users started freaking out about Facebook’s new privacy policies, it resulted in millions switching to Telegram and Signal—a huge loss for the Facebook conglomerate.
This is just one example of how much more aware and cautious people are about their data and digital identity. We’ve already seen what changes we can make when we all come together. So, what will happen next? Join BIGtoken and data privacy experts for a discussion on digital identity and ownership.
Who: Lou Kerner, Gilbert Hill, Avishai Ostrin, Enoch Liang
What: How Much Are You Worth? A Look Into Digital Identity & Ownership
- What does your data footprint look like? How does it compare across platforms?
- How can we alleviate consumer confusion about data collection and usage?
- How can emerging technology, like blockchain, help with data transparency and ownership?
- What can consumers do now to take more control of their data?
When: April 8, 2021, 1:00 p.m. ET / 10:00 a.m. PT
