You Shared What? Seriously?!

This is that conversation which needs to happen between a parent and their teenage child about the challenges of growing up in an increasingly connected world. We will discuss many privacy and security related decisions and experiences, and the differing perspectives on each. The reality is we don’t know all we think we know - and neither do our teens. 

This is an opportunity to understand the perspective and impacts of the interplay between a privacy & security-aware parent and teenage daughter as they navigate the competing priorities of parents, schools, peers and teachers in a highly interconnected and data rich world. While news media and the echo chamber might suggest that these things are top of mind, our experience suggests this may not be accurate.
