Description

Hacking, snooping and data mining are commonplace in the digital era. At work, on the road and even at home, your personal information can be seen and shared and your privacy can be violated. Two veteran journalists have written a practical, easy-to-follow guide to minimize your digital footprint, protect your vital information and prevent sensitive details from being misused.

Jim Bronskill and David McKie spell out the steps each of us can take to keep our important data out of reach while still participating fully in new technologies. They identify the pitfalls as well as the small moves that will help us avoid them. Your Right to Privacy makes an important contribution to enforcing our right to privacy at a time when governments, businesses and others want to know more about almost everything we do. This book follows the successful Your Right to Know by the same two authors.
