Abstract:


During his research on how third-party tracking companies follow and collect data on people seeking mental health help online, researcher Mike Landeck has identified 187 different ways users and their browsers are tracked. Long gone are the days of just cookies and user agents. This talk will demonstrate how browsers are tracked, how to prevent it for yourself, and for those in AppSec, how to communicate the problems and solutions to your Security and Privacy Officers.
