A Presentation on Privacy Matters

A couple of years ago I was invited to Ireland to give a presentation on privacy issues to a group of programmers and system administrators. I thought it might be interesting to embed it here for two reasons. One reason is that the social networking scam that former USC basketball player Gabe Pruitt fell for is included.

Even though this incident happened a few years ago, the risks of using social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter are becoming more and more a part of the discussion in league security offices, as well as college recruiting. And they should be on your mind every time you post something as well.

The other more practical reason is that our company, The Cayuga Group, LLC, can tailor presentations and education programs in the areas of Social Media Risk Management, privacy issues, brand management, technology risk management, and other topics faced by sports organizations, sports media organizations, athletes and more.

Now about the presentation

It really is a presentation that is better experienced in person as it is not a traditional "PowerPoint Hell" presentation.

The first section is where I share a lot of information about me, followed by a "So what?". The point is that this is information I choose to share with the audience, but there are a lot of things we do not choose to share, and that 90% of what I shared could be found online.

The presentation was given the week before parliamentary elections in Ireland, a process that has a whopping 3-week campaign "season." So I had a little fun with that as well.

Please feel free to share any thoughts, feedback, questions, etc.
