Data and Goliath

Schneier, Bruce,

9780393244816 - Data and Goliath

Artikelomschrijving

Your cell phone provider tracks your location and knows whos with you. Your online and in-store purchasing patterns are recorded, and reveal if youre unemployed, sick, or pregnant. Your e-mails and texts expose your intimate and casual friends. Google knows what youre thinking because it saves your private searches. Facebook can determine your sexual orientation without you ever mentioning it. The powers that surveil us do more than simply store this information. Corporations use surveillance to manipulate not only the news articles and advertisements we each see, but also the prices were offered. Governments use surveillance to discriminate, censor, chill free speech, and put people in danger worldwide. And both sides share this information with each other or, even worse, lose it to cybercriminals in huge data breaches. Much of this is voluntary: we cooperate with corporate surveillance because it promises us convenience, and we submit to government surveillance because it promises us protection. The result is a mass surveillance society of our own making. But have we given up more than weve gained?
