Privacy and the world of DTC (Direct to Consumer) - data breaches are already happening
Andelka Philips and Jan Charbonneau (University of Tasmania)
DTC is an industry that has created a market for genetic tests as commercial services, taking them outside of the oversight mechanisms that apply in a clinical setting and into the consumer space, where they have been subject to relatively little oversight. The speakers will share further findings from their 2022 survey of attitudes towards genetic privacy in the direct-to-consumer (DTC) space and its effect on behavioural intention.
