Privacy Matters

“But even the most stringent security precautions suffered from a fatal weakness: the human factor.”—Freedom

I sat down recently to analyze the issue of personal protection and safety. I write about various issues that impact our ability to defend our assets and reputation through this forum, but in light of my lack of subject-matter-expertise I tend to neglect writing about information protection matters. Yet very few things in our modern society of hyper-connectivity are as important as protecting our data, identity, only transactions—you pick the term that best suits this important task.  That is the reason I’ve decided to share with you links to privacy articles that in my view, have a high level of significance to our personal asset protection and security awareness. I will continue posting on this topic every month or so; therefore, visit this blog from time to time to see the latest “privacy matters”.
