Criminals, competitors (anyone with the right contacts) can buy a person's tax records. An individual's medical records are available to complete strangers. TV star Rebecca Schaffer was shot to death by a computer stalker. No wonder an Equifax poll reports that 79 percent of Americans said they would like to "add privacy to 'life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness'" in the Declaration of Independence. André Bacard's new book, Computer Privacy Handbook, a book written for both the general public and for computer users, tells you how to add privacy to your life.
We live in the Age of Electronic Surveillance, Bacard says, and snooping happens. Given that millions of e-mail messages are exchanged daily, and the Internet buzzes with zillions of bites of online discussions each day, it's easy to see how this could be. But just as computers are part of the problem, they are also part of the solution. Bacard details how individuals can safeguard their electronic privacy using proper data protection and the right software.
Computer Privacy Handbook shows how computers threaten YOUR personal security, and it gives YOU the practical tools to reassert YOUR privacy! In this book, find out:
Computer Privacy Handbook also contains a user-friendly manual for PGP software. PGP ("Pretty Good Privacy") is a top-rate program to protect your personal and business data files and e-mail from snoops! PGP is the de facto world standard for e-mail privacy.
