Transcript for Hackers Steal Your Identity From Photos to Do's and Don'ts of Sharing Secrets at Work
Hello and welcome to real -- I'm Rebecca Jarvis here in New York City and here's what's on our radar today the war for private. Just beginning and they start ups are on the front lines battling for your business we'll to have the do's and don'ts when drinking with co workers. And away for -- lovers to meet new friends -- face to face it's called -- social and we've got the master chefs here with us. Who want to get right to it from snapped -- who turned down Facebook's three billion dollar offer. To -- -- who accepted Facebook's nineteen billion dollar buyout yell at one thing in common they want to be the go to mobile messaging app that keeps your information secure. And my next -- beat both snapped -- and what's that to win the editor's choice for best overall messaging app. -- Seles co-founder and CEO -- she's so concerned about privacy she's even wearing sunglasses during this interview. To keep her identity secure it's so nice to have you with a sneak out her backpack and you Wear sunglasses and every interview on TV. Outlets so there's no pictures of me -- -- or face buck without my sunglasses so my eyes are carrot that's why helping him to stay that way forever and what's the thinking behind this why why keep yourself disguised. I think it's kind of like the club on your cards just want an easier way. For people to take piece of information about you there as a researcher a couple of years again that was able to take picture from a high security. Camera. And determine -- match dot com. Your face up and your Social Security number your Social Security number I mean I think a lot of people wouldn't like a lot of that but it it the biggest issue is the Social Security number. Part of this is facial recognition technology right as more and more. Consumer based applications now have the potential to base based on the pictures that you're putting up on the Internet to determine who you are determined who you are and -- -- thing I -- birthplace. And your birth location it's pretty easy to steal your financial identity and that's really hard to clean up. And I can cost an average family 5000 dollars and tons of -- I don't. We have seen obviously more and more data breaches as well -- we've seen more and more families having to go through just that but. Previously nobody was really thinking about this when FaceBook first came to be. 101215. Years ago. On the Internet people -- very willingly putting information out there is it just seems so vast and nobody had the potential or at least as far as we knew. Nobody had the potential to mine all of that -- Unlike -- act that I've boycotted FaceBook my entire life. I'm one of the -- people actually reads privacy policies. On the if you look at the privacy policy at -- what's that snapped at FaceBook -- Graham Twitter. You grants. Your you grants. For license and -- contact your conversations. You're locations to that company to buy and sell. And misuse and abuse really is also what's happening here so what is wicker how does that work settle out -- kind of like what -- snapped tap that worth more money I like to thank. -- -- -- We came out from now where bunch -- antiques and where the first group. Security experts that -- we -- we think everyone in the world deserves top secret -- encryption -- issues. Because the data brokers are actually way more aggressive. -- governments that's why the government -- Today's technology companies because they are the masters of -- There's people spend all day collecting every little piece of information about you and putting on -- Every time. For people who aren't necessarily familiar with the term data broker every time you go on any web site. Whether it's and I'm just throwing some names that but it applies to everybody whether it's Amazon -- Home Depot. New York Times abcnews.com. All of these web sites have what's known as data brokers which are. Essentially these -- -- that are watching everything you do from every click to every -- Whether you turn the page before clicking on an item that you might and eventually purchased. They're all looking at your habits and creating this online profile that someday made but ultimately be the -- that they determine whether to sell you something whether -- -- to at a certain price. Or lose their database right -- And I think at that makes it really hard for consumers because it seems -- resistance is impossible here right I mean what do you do. And I think it's just really important to not get up and just tried to you be conscious of your digital footprint. And think about what you're eating out there free and make -- you know things I don't think you need to let that be about everyday conversations that your mother. Right and daughter Haitians at your kids and pictures that kids are sharing online and these kind of thing I -- -- -- contact. It's it's a scary thing because you young people -- When I was younger I am not so sure that I would've had the appreciation for what something following me for the rest of my life. On the Internet an innocuous little comment would have ultimately -- -- true but at the same time kids more than anyone. Get a surveillance state they live in the surveillance -- that there. Their parents and they and the Aegean issue even more -- exactly health. I was talking to Mark Cuban recently about his new -- cyber dust which essentially is a disappearing text messaging app -- his point. And I asked him who is ultimately going to wash the Internet. -- -- if there's somebody out there at their summit ST maybe it's what -- wants to do. Who's gonna -- the Internet in the same way that we -- a phone before we turn it over for public consumption. The -- so without a shredder so we. So long time ago in society kids -- dying because a spoiled milk and we came together society decided leading expiration. I think that all personal information needs expiration date and that should be a requirement. For markets. And that's really making its future -- -- well I look forward to speaking with you in the future I know he'll be -- your sunglasses and -- sell -- co-founder CEO of -- at about apple things here for Catholics say OK so one of the things I teach kids how to do not honor. Turn on the inner facing camera in -- on your -- -- laptop or computer cities are removable stickers. They eat them but he -- -- -- -- if you can put it on top of the inner facing camera yes great and take it on and off and then I wanted to show -- -- -- -- actually just use on this as part of -- -- had found. And I just always keep the -- and has the dead and let out I had found so that way no one can turn on my -- -- conversations. I'm ironically sexy very low tech solutions here little things -- well thank you so much -- The best message. All right -- -- Americans might want more privacy on social media a new study shows just the opposite when it comes to socializing in person -- work in fact nearly half of the millennial surveyed. Say they're likely to share personal secrets with colleagues as opposed the baby boomer generation who likes to keep their dirty laundry out of the work -- place. What are the dangers of sharing too much some of you may have -- experience this -- wanna talk that it Hewitt Nicole Williams she's pointing career expert and the best selling author it's so nice to have you with us Nepal. And. Thank you -- -- So what do you make and it's how much personal information is too much in the workplace. Yet you know it's it's very slippery slope I think when I think that we fountains. In this study certainly didn't we are all of our current understanding relationships and we wanted to see generation only Powell. People. They -- relationships because relationships are so important in the workplace and work culture and slowing down is of course that let meals are just so much more willing to share and as we consider that a good thing you know that they -- friendships that are well established anxious these. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I think part of. Is the line these days is also more blurred between work and personal because people Nicole are just working so much more we're spending more time in the office. But I've seen it you mentioned that the positives. Two millennial than anyone in the workplace sharing in getting to know each other there's also beat that didn't negative downside of you get so close out of the workplace and then whatever it is that's going on outside of the workplace -- filters over into the workplace and all of a sudden becomes a drama. Yes yes absolutely. Corrected -- you know at the end of the day. What I like about this conversation is the fact that we're acknowledging that there is -- line and is I think we can learn learn a little from the boomers in terms. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- If you think that worries -- imagine that -- the Fareed speaks for you post on FaceBook before you snap Chad before you -- What do you think revenues and -- of drinking with co workers -- call. Yet you know it's I didn't -- dose and -- absolutely share information like you don't treat friendships we know that. People are more productive in these kinds of -- -- environments and you definitely. And you know we encourage that it helps to make us more motivated even more competitive what you don't wanna do is make people comfortable and you don't want to -- professional brand -- urge to -- sharing information he tells that's not. You know that just isn't consistent -- who you are as a professional. Begin this -- you know the whole let's go for drinks after work is very common occurrence and you definitely want to -- very careful out. Having one too many drinks talking about colleagues cheering again information that's wildly inappropriate yet there is this balance -- sometimes -- have a -- we tend to lose power plants could be leaner and one and then done. One and done. That that one other interesting element from the study was the idea that colonials whether or not they would sacrifice friendship. For that promotion and I do think this speaks to the drinking factor because. All of a sudden you're so close with certain people you share things maybe you shouldn't share. And if people are willing to sacrifice that friendship to get ahead. Yeah I figure out it's right there and I think what. We -- elicited from this study is the fact that yeah. The original ideals are willing to forgo our friendship and ordered a competitive team really -- -- the marketplace where you know it is -- can be competitive and ordered to succeed and I think -- -- operatives again especially for women is that they believed that they're one -- other friendships and or they can be competitive and still maintain a friendship that those two things are mutually exclusive so gosh you know them. The reality is the workplace is more competitive and what's the boomers wouldn't -- her -- -- It's wonderful on the -- we really appreciate you joining us thanks so much for those great tips. My -- -- -- act one and dad Nicole William Linda -- Will making friends in the office is not the only way to meet people the pier hotel in New York City has come up with a new way to get strangers to meet face to face and it's perfect for anyone who loves to experiment with food. Like I do it's called chef social club -- here to give us the juicy -- -- is shaft sperm the issue he's the exact him shaft at the pier at Taj hotel in New York it's so nice to have you with more mr. nice to meet here. You mean we we -- any guest who brings us all of these beautiful. Foods is always welcome here and I love your spice trade you even -- there was I think yeah. Okay so -- -- -- fumes prices and this is only actually probably one photo what we use. Just sort of big cabinet for that -- salute to -- it thinks spice -- absolutely. I mean there's there's I wanted to show lot of opportunities. Thompson just going back to what was speaking about what you're speaking about earlier. There's so much of sinful ways leniency for ways to meet people and -- what we have is -- have social club and appear. Where you meet is complete strangers me to wouldn't. How -- work out how do they get to cook. No I get to enjoy and they get to enjoy it and means we wanted to look at we -- to meet people. The same time it's the demands of of the -- were sticking out of took on -- zone and have somebody actually take you through what to eating. So that is what how -- systems -- club he won't. And the -- are -- -- and Michael and one of us have become out and explain what you eat and tickets with a floors. And -- here is a beautiful hotel and a very very nice hotel in New York City went up on the topic it is it's a classic right and people. Lots of big game show up at the Pierre and -- there and seen some very famous people. How much are we talking about in terms of cost here. It's only 85 dollars for a -- which is I think it's a great deal when you're going through 1718. Auditions. -- -- and it's all small portions so you know you don't really fill up crazy. And you're tasting new flavors and and I think assistant if you really. Thank you -- food so why wouldn't you. In terms of of -- you're seeing in the food world you brought all of these spices what are the big new emerging trends in food right now. I think -- -- dining is it's probably the biggest fan that's coming up I mean Americans. The American. Consumer today I think is ready for wonderfully worst I have no -- seen -- -- -- some examples like for example in the -- who -- just -- to some it is. Russia yeah. That was what really -- it probably let them before they were big name now -- you don't have to I think. I don't think we should limit does this to welcome was departments I think -- a great opportunity here to move the real thing but moving -- spices. So what are their real life is that you -- you happy total yards you have you know there's no limit and I don't think like us that there is there is only one photo of what do you lose and that's only one photo 14 of what's held there. So there's there is ample opportunities. And today's consumer also are more. Exports to things they have much more the part of that travel. The route. I mean it's not that. It's not that you hood -- -- about type with the going to be -- from somebody. So people aren't looking for authentic flavors that are looking for the -- -- we will have been looking for Graham -- -- they're looking for. Cuisine from palace six effects of Mexico so there's a lot of them -- they do want justice I think it's one of the biggest fans out there right now. Is that they want to experience in in the format that is safe. You don't necessarily want to -- recovery for you mean you. But you don't mind a little snippet of -- Right because I -- if you're ordering from a menu and there's one option. And it's something you've never tried before -- and -- it -- a lot of people are going to be nervous they don't want to spend their money on something that cannot and I. More than the money -- the -- for the evening. So here are -- are offering some smaller portions with -- -- -- In an in this scenario -- it's still gone for W tasting a -- report from -- if you don't like it -- -- the same time you are experimenting and you are actually getting used to it seventies in its view of me. And you being talked about -- prices for example I have one. Middle Couri here talking which is. Assume curry from the regional Marla martz of course the reason -- India that's -- I'm -- -- front correct. And absorbing -- -- lease price is that the that that is used to me that Hillary. Along with the -- -- -- and so. If -- -- that that's gonna make a career like that big of of -- -- that -- -- and blending and mixing. Together with those. Is the test it play with it right for everybody who wanted to. If if they're not going to be in New York City and they can't make it to the -- -- at home.
