Description:  Survivors who have fled abuse or stalking often struggle to maintain privacy in our digital age. Data brokers compile personal information from public records, social media, the US Postal Service, retailers, insurance and banking, credit bureaus and more. Personal information ends up on the internet and is available to anyone for a price. Facial recognition technology makes it easier to connect personal and identity information to a digital photograph. All of this information is a threat to survivors' privacy, and even to their basic safety. Survivors can also find it hard to keep personal information private while meeting needs like income and housing. Information about past abuse can surface years later, impacting healing. This training will look at how public and private information become available online and how advocates and the survivors they help can control or stop the flow of that data.
