DeleteMe Releases 2021 Personal Identifiable Information (PII) Marketplace Report
BOSTON, Jan. 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- On Monday, DeleteMe (The Online Privacy Company) released its DeleteMe 2021 PII Marketplace Report, highlighting the metrics, trends, consumer behaviors, and attitudes shaping the ecosystem of online personal information.
The global data broker ecosystem is currently a $200bn industry, with over 4,000 data brokers worldwide and 230 in the United States, with hundreds of data points for every person who has ever spent any time on the internet.
DeleteMe's 2021 PII Marketplace Report reveals key insights that impact everyday consumers and businesses alike:
"PII proliferation poses a rising threat to individual privacy, corporate cybersecurity, and personal well-being," adds Rob Shavell, co-founder and CEO at DeleteMe. "Tighter regulation on data collection and processing is needed, and better education about privacy is essential. Although our study found that more consumers are now taking the time to understand the privacy features and tools available to them, many still take no measures at all to protect their privacy online. And that's a problem."
