Zero Day Threat discusses the immediate and long-term security and privacy risks associated with online transactions, social networks and Web 2.0 technologies. The book outlines how the internet and Web 2.0 applications are opening new doors to focused and profit-minded e-crime groups driving a $200 billion-a-year industry that revolves around stolen data. The webcast will examine the intense, but invisible activity on the cutting-edge of cyber- crime and suggest steps consumers and organizations can take to increase online security and privacy.

"The May 7 webcast is an important event for raising awareness of the many security and privacy risks associated with the internet, social networking and Web 2.0 applications," said Brett McDowell, executive director, Liberty Alliance. "The Privacy in Perspective series has been designed to help consumers and organizations become better educated about online privacy threats and to drive new understanding of the technology and policy initiatives available to help mitigate risks."
