Giving up personal data is one of the tradeoffs of using the internet. And once you give it up, it’s suddenly everywhere thanks to a massive data economy that trades in information about everyone and everything. But there are some steps you can take to limit your exposure. Yael Grauer, an investigative technology journalist and a program manager for Security Planner at Consumer Reports, joins the show to talk about all the ways people are tracked online by data brokers – and what the average internet user can do to increase their privacy online and strip their personal information off the web. CyberScoop reporter Tonya Riley also talks about mental health issues within the cybersecurity industry and her recent reporting on the topic.
