There are many problems with the information technology industry: a lack of professionalism, ``guns for hire'' mentality, identity theft, phishing, security vulnerabilities in essential infrastructure, to name a few. Informed consent can be the key to stopping some of these serious problems, but only if properly set up so that users have full, relevant, easy to understand information to guide their decisions. In writing this thesis, I have addressed some of the fundamental problems with the current practise and offered some reasonable and feasible suggestions for changing the state of informed consent for the better.
