Online privacy may be something you think isn’t possible these days, but there are things you can do to protect yourself. People may have the ability to find out information about you, but its what they do with that information that can be harmful. Join us as Fran Maier explains to us the powers we have to combat this intrusion into our online lives.
Fran Maier is the President and Executive Chair of TRUSTe, the leading online privacy trustmark and service provider.
