The Future of Internet Privacy

Sharq Village & Spa Doha

Join leading Internet Privacy expert Jules Polonetsky for ictQATAR’s Connected Speakers Series.

Do you know where your data goes online? Probably not. In today’s hyper-connected world, there is more information out there about us than ever before, much of which we are willingly sharing! We are at an important juncture in determining the future of privacy - will the abundance of data be used to benefit individuals and society, or will it lead us down a path where we are controlled by how others use our data?

Join leading Internet Privacy expert Jules Polonetsky, Co-Chair and Director of the Future of Privacy Forum, for ictQATAR’s Connected Speakers Series on Monday, November 28 at 6:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public, but advance registration is required. At the Future of Privacy Forum, a think tank that seeks to advance responsible data practices, Polonetsky focuses on online data use, smart grids, mobile data, apps and social media.

Previously, Polonetsky served as Chief Privacy Officer and Senior Vice President for Consumer Advocacy at AOL, where he was responsible for ensuring AOL’s users could trust the company with their information and for educating employees about best practice for advertising, content and product development.
