Computer Privacy Annoyances by Dan Tynan

Book Description

From the moment you're born, you enter the data stream-from birth certificates to medical records to what you bought on Amazon last week. As your dossier grows, so do the threats, from identity thieves to government snoops to companies who want to sell you something. "Computer Privacy Annoyances" shows you how to regain control of your life. You'll learn how to keep private information private, stop nosy bosses, get off that incredibly annoying mailing list, and more. Unless you know what data is available about you and how to protect it, you're a sitting duck. "Computer Privacy Annoyances" is your guide to a safer, saner, and more private life. Written by privacy pro Dan Tynan, and based on interviews with privacy experts from all over the globe, "Computer Privacy Annoyances" serves up real-world advice in bite-sized portions that will help you stop the snoops in their tracks. The book even addresses non-computing threats, from telemarketer-cum-stalkers, thieves at your mailbox, nosy folks in your HR department, cell phone eavesdroppers, and more. The key areas covered include: Privacy at Home; Privacy on the Net; Privacy at Work; Privacy in Public; Privacy and Uncle Sam; and Privacy in the Future. Daniel Tynan has written about Internet privacy and security for nearly a decade. His work has appeared in more than 40 national publications. As executive editor at PC World, Tynan edited a special issue on "Internet Privacy" that won a Grand Neal Award and was a finalist for a National Magazine Award. He has won more than a dozen other honors, including nine Neals, four Maggies, and two Computer Press Association Awards.
