Then, Daralyse sits down with legal expert Liz Brown as the two explore issues regarding technology and privacy laws within the workplace.

* How tech itself may or may not be biased, but the uses of tech can be, whether consciously or otherwise.

* How tech is developed by people who have their own sets of biases, and how these biases can translate to the technology itself.

* How data and information may not be protected, based on the state you live in.

* The importance of employees asking the right questions of their company's General Council and Human Resource teams in understanding how customer data is used.
