The Fifth HOPE (2004): "Privacy - Not What It Used To Be" (Download)
Saturday, July 10, 2004: 3:00 pm (Area "A"): Steve Rambam has been at every one of our conferences and each time he's outdone himself with tales and demonstrations on how much data is stored on each and every last one of us. We all hear the news reports about how government and industry want to expand their databases and share all kinds of information. We hear how people try to protect their privacy and how various organizations attempt to quash the legislation that would broaden these databases. But what we don't hear is how much of our info is already out there and how much of it is being shared between law enforcement, private industry, and many more. Steve will share some of his vast knowledge on the subject and leave you feeling terrified and helpless. And as a special treat, a selected "victim" will learn firsthand just how much personal data can be uncovered on them.
