Description : With more than 200 million people online and their numbers on the rise, growing also is a perceived threat to personal privacy. A movement to create strict forms of privacy-protecting legislation is well developed in Europe and seems to be coming soon to America. What should corporations expect and how should they comply? Frye analyzes the interests and concerns of Internet users, then offers advice to guide businesses through the minefield of current and emerging privacy issues. Without demonizing or lionizing them, he looks impartially at how corporations could and might actually function in a variety of short- and long-term privacy-sensitive scenarios. His book, among the first to attempt these tasks, is a timely, much needed advisory (and warning) for top echelon excutives in the public and private sectors both--particularly in marketing and sales, where pro-privacy activism is currently most prevalent. It is also an important source of information and thought for academics and their graduate-level students.
Description : The explosion of Web-based data has created a demand among executives and technologists for methods to identify, gather, analyze, and utilize data that may be of value to corporations and organizations. The emergence of data mining, and the larger field of Web mining, has businesses lost within a confusing maze of mechanisms and strategies for obtaining and managing crucial intelligence. Web Data Mining and Applications in Business Intelligence and Counter-Terrorism responds by presenting a clear and comprehensive overview of Web mining, with emphasis on CRM and, for the first time, security and counter-terrorism applications. The tools and methods of Web mining are revealed in an easy-to-understand style, emphasizing the importance of practical, hands-on experience in the creation of successful e-business solutions. The author, a program director for Data and Applications Security at the National Science Foundations, details how both opportunities and dangers on the Web can be identified and managed. Armed with the knowledge contained in this book, businesses can collect and analyze Web-based data to help develop customer relationships, increase sales, and identify existing and potential threats. Organizations can apply these same Web mining techniques to battle the real and present danger of terrorism, demonstrating Web mining's critical role in the intelligence arsenal.
Description : The successes and failures of an industry that claims to protect and promote our online identities What does privacy mean in the digital era? As technology increasingly blurs the boundary between public and private, questions about who controls our data become harder and harder to answer. Our every web view, click, and online purchase can be sold to anyone to store and use as they wish. At the same time, our online reputation has become an important part of our identity—a form of cultural currency. The Identity Trade examines the relationship between online visibility and privacy, and the politics of identity and self-presentation in the digital age. In doing so, Nora Draper looks at the revealing two-decade history of efforts by the consumer privacy industry to give individuals control over their digital image through the sale of privacy protection and reputation management as a service. Through in-depth interviews with industry experts, as well as analysis of media coverage, promotional materials, and government policies, Draper examines how companies have turned the protection and promotion of digital information into a business. Along the way, she also provides insight into how these companies have responded to and shaped the ways we think about image and reputation in the digital age. Tracking the successes and failures of companies claiming to control our digital ephemera, Draper takes us inside an industry that has commodified strategies of information control. This book is a discerning overview of the debate around who controls our data, who buys and sells it, and the consequences of treating privacy as a consumer good.
