What's missing from the cybersecurity conversation today?

We've spoken about cybersecurity in the context of individual risks, the way that a gullible individual is a risk to their organization. But there are folks who can surveil vast numbers of us and do cool things, like Google, Facebook or your carrier. Those companies know a ton about you that hasn’t been discussed at all. Right now there's very little that we can do as individuals in IT, but I think it's important that we start to think about what we can do collectively. GDPR is a wimpy, too late approach and it's very individual. But there are important things that you can gather from surveillance.
