Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) July 15, 2015
Author and award winning journalist Ingrid Walter launches her new eBook, Protecting Your Privacy in the Tech -Terror Age on Amazon Kindle.
“Whether you're worried about identity theft and cyber crime, wondering what to do about protecting your web and tech obsessed teenager, or someone interested in understanding why invasive privacy eroding technologies threaten democracy and ultimately our precious freedoms; my new eBook, Protecting Your Privacy in the Tech -Terror Age is designed for you,” says Walter.
A former TV reporter and columnist, Walter uses stories, facts and arguments from privacy experts and personal commentary to make the point that security and freedom cannot exist without privacy.
“After my scary experience with privacy invasion and conducting extensive research, it became clear individuals, businesses, organizations and societies will continue to experience significant harm if privacy protection is not a priority.” says Walter.
Protecting Your Privacy in the Tech -Terror Age includes stories about the Sony, Target and Home Depot cyber attacks, a teenager whose encounter with an online creep ended her life, victims of East Germany’s dreaded secret police - the Stasi and many more the author uses to illustrate why privacy must be protected today more than ever before.
“I thought it was important to give people insight into how privacy invasion affects us, what’s at stake if privacy is lost, as well as useful tips on protecting privacy in the post 911, digital age,” says Walter.
Her new eBook includes a chapter on organizations that advocate for the protection of privacy rights and democratic freedoms across the world.
The former political reporter says, “I agree with a number of privacy experts who say we can protect ourselves from terror, enjoy the benefits technology offers and safeguard our privacy and freedom, but that we can’t do it if we are uninformed and disengaged.”
