“ Securing Our Future
If we want to secure our online future, we only have two problems to solve: Privacy and Security. Our online privacy is being eroded by multinational companies that make billions with our data. Services like Google and Facebook are always exploring new ways to monetize people’s personal data, exposing the fact that many business models and platforms that power digital life operate at the expense of privacy. However, there doesn’t seem to be anything illegal in that, as end users happily accept any cost to get their ‘free’ services. On the other hand, our online security is being targeted by groups that are willing to break the law. This includes both the criminals that do their attacks to make money as well as governments that do it for surveillance and espionage purposes. Where are we really? And what can we do? ”
