Editor’s note: Dallas Innovates is the media sponsor for Digital Fight Club on Aug. 28. Digital Fight Club is a no-holds-barred event that pits technology experts against each other in a head-to-head, rapid-fire discussion on a hot-button topic rooted in innovation. Read the story of how it came to be here.

And, before the main event at the end of the month, Founder Michael Pratt will be previewing what audience members can expect each round. Fight #2 is below.

Talk about a timely fight.

What are we talking about here? Well, in order to have all the great services we have come to expect from platforms like Google, Facebook, Uber, Favor, etc. data has to be shared between each platform. It makes sense and it can make for wonderful experiences.

But it’s data about you!

What rights do you have about that sharing? Are you safe with all your data being passed around like Halloween candy?

Lee Harrison is an expert in corporate data and security and Stephen Ellis is a blockchain aficionado. They don’t exactly see eye to eye on this topic. 

Let’s find out why in a head-to-head fight.
