Due to the accelerated growth of the Internet, individuals, companies and even countries have found themselves incapable of maintaining control over our privacy and online identities.

Which tools can we create to increase knowledge and the capacity to influence the use of our personal data? How can we guarantee the policies and tools we adopt are flexible enough to maintain the rapid technology changes and consumer expectations?
