For many months data privacy and security has been dominating the headlines. There is an on-going news stream about credit card data stolen from major retailers and other consumer-facing businesses. Just this week the popular restaurant chain, P.F. Chang’s and late last year the massive Target breach. It is estimated that over half of all American’s have had their private information breached in one way or another. And, don’t forget about the revelations of the NSA’s spying effort and the Snowden affair.
We wondered how women are feeling about all of this Orwellian activity. We just completed a SheByShe survey on data privacy. We collected stories and insights from more than 40 women who weighed in with their stories and thoughts. We were surprised more women did not participate since privacy and data security is a topic that touches all of us. How do you feel? Share your own stories in the comments below.
