Amy Affelt, Director, Database Research Worldwide, Compass Lexecon & Author, The Accidental Data Scientist: Big Data Applications & Opportunities for Librarians & Information Professionals
Bobbi L. Newman, Community Outreach & Engagement Specialist, National Network of Libraries of Medicine

When the U.S. Federal Communications Commission scrapped plans to introduce safeguards preventing Internet Service Providers (ISPs) from selling individual web browsing history, journalists went into high gear with advice and suggestions for protecting search privacy and encrypting online activity. Do we really need to purchase Virtual Privacy Networks (VPNs) and use Tor? Affelt talks about the pros and cons of the most-mentioned protective safeguards and shares more cost-effective workarounds and stealth search strategies. Newman shares tips from her book.
