Miss Teen USA To Attend RSA Conference 2014 With SnoopWall
|By Business Wire
|February 20, 2014 09:07 AM EST
Miss Teen USA Cassidy Wolf will attend the RSA Conference 2014 in San
Francisco on Wednesday, February 26, to support SnoopWall,
the world’s first counterveillance security
software company. “Counterveillance” is new software that helps prevent
cyber-intrusion, unauthorized spying, snooping and stealing personal
and/or corporate information. While anti-virus and firewall software
products provide a degree of protection, cyber crooks and snoops can
easily access smartphones & mobile devices through open data ports and
nasty new malware/spyware hidden in “trusted” Apps.
Wolf will be present at SnoopWall’s Booth (No. 2538 in the South Hall
of the Moscone Center) on Wednesday, February 26, 2014 between 11AM &
6PM. Between those hours Cassidy will be available to meet the press
and public, to sign autographs and take photographs.
Wolf and SnoopWall have jointly created a helpful Infographic titled
“Ten Tips to Reclaim Your Privacy and Keep Out The Cyber Snoops,”
downloadable at: teentips.snoopwall.com.
Wolf has already raised awareness about cyber safety as a result of her
own experience. Wolf suffered personally from someone hacking into her
computer and invading her privacy by taking photos of her without her
knowledge through her webcam. The story was covered by media across the
nation and Wolf was interviewed on programs including NBC’s TODAY show
and CNN’s Erin Burnett OutFront. In the interviews, Wolf revealed that
she had received an anonymous e-mail from a stranger saying he was in
possession of private photos and who threatened to extort her in return
for ensuring the photos were not made public. “I wasn’t aware that
somebody was watching me on my webcam. The light on the camera did not
even go on, so I had no idea. The camera captured things that a person
does in the privacy of your own room that you would never expect to be
watched,” said Wolf.
The 19-year-old from California became a fulltime college student at
Joffrey Ballet School in New York City after being crowned Miss Teen USA
2013 in August. Wolf continues her mission to inform others about the
growing threats from cyber snoops, hackers and criminals by sharing her
story through speeches at schools, and public events.
“I feel as though this unfortunate tragedy was supposed to happen to me
so I can use my voice to help stop this from happening to other people,”
says Wolf. “Unless we take important steps to protect ourselves,
Americans of all ages are at risk for privacy violations. As SnoopWall
strongly shares my mission to educate the public about online privacy,
I’m happy to support and join them at the RSA Conference to call
attention to this growing issue.”
“SnoopWall is honored to have the support of Miss Teen USA and we
applaud her active campaign to stop the snoops,” said Gary Miliefsky,
President of SnoopWall. “After all the recent well publicized intrusions
(NSA spying and using Angry Birds as one of their backdoors,
Facebook/Google privacy, cyber theft at Target and other retailers,)
Cassidy and SnoopWall stand together to meet the vision proclaimed in a
recent Huffington Post article: that 2014 will be The
Year of Counterveillance.”
counterveillance software flags and prevents cyber security threats
and also functions as a “port authority”: detecting and blocking remote
control, spying and eavesdropping through attempted intrusions into
cameras, webcams, microphones, GPS, USB, other ports of entry on
computers, smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices (running on
the Google Android, Microsoft Windows, and Apple iOS platforms).

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
