Raj Goel (B.S. ’94) and NYIT cyber security advisor Paul Stirpe, Ph.D., were among the featured speakers at presentations in Vancouver on Feb. 21 that addressed social media and its implications in business and security.

“People typically do not read privacy statements and are often not aware of the degree to which personal information is collected and used,” said Stirpe, co-founder of technology solutions provider Letse LLC.

Goel, chief technical officer and co-founder of Brainlink International Inc., a business technology consulting firm, discussed social media and cloud computing privacy concerns, along with a seminar on “How to Increase Your Social Capital.”
