Data aggregators and personal information brokers are focused on one thing - building as much information as possible about you. Why? The more they have the more valuable it is for them and their clients. #DataBrokers generally compile information and then sell it to other businesses - like advertisers, marketing companies, banks, insurance companies, employers, health care companies, etc - to virtually every industry.

It's bad enough that all of these companies exploit your personal information; however, there is the more terrifying possibility that criminals can access this information. While some companies have a few safeguards in place to prevent this, the reality is that almost any individual can access your personal information either through personal data aggregators, by posing as a legitimate company or just hacking into these companies. #OnlinePrivacy protection is important not just to ensure that your online identity and reputation are protected, but also that you do not unnecessarily expose yourself to risks like #identitytheft or fraud from criminals.

"The surge in growth that's been happening the past couple of years in unsustainable unless the city has the right talent to fill these jobs."

A senior technologist needs to tie their programming skills to strategic skills as well...  I still do a lot of programming, but I lead with strategic consulting on marketing and technical efforts.   Writing and Branded Processes make you seem much more valuable.
