The event will examine the importance of privacy measures, includes an overview of how easy it is to collect information based on two students who agreed to have their online activity searched, and features a faculty discussion on the privacy marketplace, social media privacy, and popular technologies used by students led by Megan Duncan, assistant professor in the School of Communications; Wenjing Lou, W.C. English Endowed Professor of computer sciences; and Donna Wertalik, professor of practice in marketing and director of marketing strategy and analytics in the Pamplin College of Business.

The purpose of the event is essentially two-fold: it puts Virginia Tech’s expertise and research regarding information privacy on display, and it educates the audience on realities, risks, safeguards, and the outlook for the future.
