Data brokers know a lot about us. They silently harvest any information they can find, by purchasing information, using trackers, scraping social media, ingesting data breaches.
They compile this information into databases, and sell access so that others can sift through the most private and sensitive areas of our lives.

In this video we pull back the curtain on a largest player in this industry – LexisNexis Risk Solutions, and talk about their giant contracts to sell data to governments.

Data is the new currency. Let’s take back control of our information, and make more conscious choices about the technology we use.
