Is there such thing as privacy in the modern world anymore? You may think that it’s granted to you. You may live being convinced that you’re keeping your life out of the public eye as long as you’re not exposing yourself. Unfortunately, that’s not the way the privacy system works.
What if I told you that all the right choices you’ve ever made in your life don’t necessarily have to lead to absolute privacy and discretion? You haven’t shared your personal information with strangers, you’ve never revealed the life you lead behind the closed doors. Somehow, it proves to be insufficient.
Something they don’t teach us in schools is that the online data is absolutely accessible. We all enjoy the benefits of the Internet. We have the social media, the possibility of online shopping, the opportunity to do almost everything online. But, at what cost?
Privacy in the Age of the Big Data gives you the most valuable thing you’re entitled to: knowledge.
We all DESERVE to know what threats await us every time we type in our personal details. And once we become aware of them, we deserve to know how to deal with them successfully.
Here’s the scary truth: every time we use the Internet, a certain amount of data is collected. Obviously, after a certain period of time (usually a few seconds), we entirely disregard that fact. But, just because we’re not giving it enough thought doesn’t mean that it’s not happening.
The main question is: what exactly happens to the collected data? The answer to this life-changing question is one of many that can be found in the book titled Privacy in the Age of the Big Data.
Written in collaboration of a former White House Chief Information officer and a lawyer, this book gives you a clear, straight-forward picture that you can wrap your head around. It presents the possible threats, such as cybercriminals, scammers, the possibility of location tracking, and many more.
But don’t think you’ll be left with nothing but warnings! This book provides practical advice on how you can foresee or recognize these threats, deal with them, and protect yourself, as well as your loved ones.
Someone once said that knowledge is power, and that is something that many people tend to forget about. This book highlights the importance of keeping your eyes wide open and dealing with potential threats before it’s too late. You deserve to know and take action!
