Selena Templeton and co-host Marco Ciappelli chat with Whitney Merrill, a privacy and data attorney who also founded the crypto village at DEFCON, about cyberbullying, anonymity and privacy rights.
Whitney starts this conversation off by recounting her own experience of cyberbullying when she was in high school, and the frustration she experienced when she was told by teachers, the police and even AOL that there was not much they could do to trace the user.
She responded to that by getting a masters degree where she explored issues associated with technology, information security, privacy, anonymity and the law.
