Businesses, Hackers, Hactivists, Governments, Law enforcement, Criminals, Mafia, Con Artists, Bullies, Ex es, Stalkers (almost everyone) can access intimate details about your life and they don't even have to try hard to get that info.
All the gadgets you use generate tons of data which is stored in systems accessible to almost everyone in the world.
This data exists 'forever' and never gets deleted even if you decided to close all your online accounts.
You don't even need to have online presence, your name, address, credit information, vehicle plates; everything is tracked and stored in some database somewhere.
This data is then get sold, sliced, diced, hacked and shared with (out) your consent. Have you ever read the ‘Terms of Service’ completely before you clicked that ‘I Agree’ button?
So far the book doesn't provide any solutions. Hopefully there will be some solution before the last page.

I have been involved with computer, network, and Internet security since the mid '70s. I started programming operating systems in 1968. This book collects all the threats we have faced historically in the first dozen chapters. Then Mr Goodman paints a very clear picture of the security and privacy threats we face in the next five to ten years. This book is a must read for everyone. Granted some parts of the book might get a little technical for some folks. Don't that stop you from reading it. It is written in a very clear and concise fashion that all readers will walk away from reading this book with their eyes wide open. Not only does Mr. Goodman identify the present and future threats, but he also offers good strategies and best practices that you can employ to mitigate a good many of the threats.
An important survival guide for the digital age2017年1月18日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
Important book to read as it provides a comprehensive overview of the types of "attacks" that are occurring on the internet, many of which you have never heard of (I consider myself a tech-saavy person, but was surprised how little I knew). Was introduced to Marc's book from Tim Ferriss' podcast. Marc does a great job of explaining how the antivirus software companies are always a step behind the hackers and what we as citizens can be doing to better protect ourselves online (e.g. password management programs, two-factor authentication, etc). Also includes fascinating anecdotes and stories from the government (e.g. hacking the Iranian nuclear program). Should be required reading for all adults given the amount of time we spend "connected" and online
Well done.2021年4月2日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
Well researched, well written. May be a bit of overload for those not really into computer technology and from that standpoint parts of the book are repetitive overkill. But is is through, a real eye opener as to just how vulnerable we have become in terms of potential criminal activity and loss of privacy. Interesting overview of the major hacks of commercial entities and the ramifications but includes some suggestions that may keep you a bit safer. An interesting read.
