    Consumers are becoming increasingly concerned with how their activities are being tracked. This focus on privacy and data security is ushering in a new era of security. Learn more in an interesting SecurityToday article:

    Privacy issues continue to dominate headlines as the world’s biggest companies are being challenged on the ways they collect and use people’s data. Consumers are growing more concerned about how their activities are being tracked across the web as companies sell information to advertisers for a profit.

    At the same time, the public is worried about how different types of technologies are tracking them offline. Facial recognition technology, powered by artificial intelligence to match images against various databases, has become particularly controversial. While consumers are fine with some implementations of facial recognition technology, such as unlocking their smartphone or tagging their friends in photo albums, the bigger concern is how it could be used for surveillance.
