Companies are struggling to control their privacy on the Internet. Employees are inadvertently giving away sensitive company data simply by using their cell phones or interacting on social media sites. Even run-of-the-mill communication in the course of day-to-day business operations, such as the way human resources partners with health care or travel firms, often gives away too much information and weakens companies’ competitive positions.
In this video interview from RSA Conference 2012, Ira Winkler, chief security strategist at Saratoga, Calif.-based Codenomicon Ltd., discusses business data privacy issues on the Internet. Winkler analyzes the effectiveness of the Internet privacy "bill of rights" proposed by the Obama administration, and details the excessive privacy concerns caused by Google’s control of Android mobile devices.
