Protecting Your Privacy and Identity Online

I've wanted for a long time to do a presentation on data privacy. Chapter 17 in the text has a lot of great information but it's almost all from a business perspective as is appropriate for an Internet Marketing text.

This presentation is entirely from the point of view of individual internet users. It brings up a number of controversial topics and even brushes some political ones. All the recommendations are carefully researched and I believe it gives good advice for our daily lives. Since some topics are controversial--ad blockers for one example, the reference to the fact that ISPs could sell browsing data for another--it could also become starting point for a lab discussion. I, for one, would love to know how much of the data security practices are practiced by today's students--or perhaps even known to them.
