Self-quantified trackers made possible what was once nearly unthinkable: for individuals to gather data on one’s activity level in order to manage and improve one’s performance. Some have remarked that self-quantified devices can hinge on the edge of over management.

Meanwhile, it seems that businesses are also struggling with a similar dilemma: measuring the right amount of risk and harm as it relates to security and privacy.

Acting FTC Chairman Maureen Ohlhausen said at a recent privacy and security workshop, “In making policy determinations, injury matters. … If we want to manage privacy and data security injuries, we need to be able to measure them.”
