Title: To Build or Not to Build - Privacy Considerations when Developing and Launching Products
Abstract: There's a saying in the industry, "If the product is free, you're the product." Everyday we freely give up sensitive data about ourselves to obtain access to products, services, or benefits. As product managers, we have to continually evaluate the data we collect and how we will leverage it; not only comply with the changing regulations but to protect our customers and corporate reputation. In this seminar we'll discuss one such data source - the Domain Name System (DNS), the value of this data, and the considerations that have come into play when leveraging it to develop new products and services.
