He Said She Said

Today I talk with Justin and Jodi Daniels about that state of privacy today, how we can help consumers and companies better understand the importance of privacy and security, and how companies are dealing with these aspects internally. We talk about the state of privacy regulations (or the lack thereof), why companies are failing to protect their customers, and what we can do about that.

Justin and Jodi host a podcast together called She Said Privacy, He Said Security. They’ve also co-written a book called “Data Reimagined: Building trust one byte at a time”.
