3 Big data security analytics techniques

DoubleClick has won the coveted "Greatest Corporate Invader" prize in Privacy International's 2nd annual Big Brother awards. The award was presented (although it's not clear to whom) at Privacy International's Computers, Freedom and Privacy 2000 Conference, which was held earlier this week in Toronto. A judging panel of lawyers, academics, consultants, journalists and civil rights activists gave DoubleClick the prize in recognition of its success in "monitoring the surfing of 50 million net users." Other victors in this year's awards were the US Federal Aviation Administration for the BodyScan body scanners it's putting into airports, Worst Public Official to William Daley of the US Department of Commerce, for "Safe Harbor, export controls, opposing US privacy laws," and TransUnion, "for selling credit reports to marketers and keeping inaccurate reports for years." ®
