The Digital Umbrella: Technology's Attack on Personal Privacy in America
Is your privacy at stake? Privacy violations are everywhere. How many Americans understand that the discount card at the drug store can track their orders, that the website they visited on their computer just installed a program to log their keystrokes, or that their workplace is monitoring their each and every move? Privacy violations can, and will, result in identity theft, credit card fraud, employer dismissal, and loss of productivity.

Technology tracks everything and affects everyone, young and old, computer user or not. The Digital Umbrella exposes the risks to your personal privacy with real-life examples and proven methods to protect yourself. Learn how comporate America, the US government, and even your employer are destroying any expectation of privacy in this country. This informative guide to personal privacy includes in-depth analyses and tutorials on protection as well as ways to combat and prevent electronic fraud. Anyone can, and will, understand the topics covered in this book. Don't wait until it's too late, learn about the risks today!
