Co-Author Theresa Payton Joins Daily Show to Discuss New Book, Online Data Security
February 6, 2014
The Daily Show’s John Stewart calls Ted Claypoole and Theresa Payton's new book, “The discussion of the era.” Privacy in the Age of Big Data: Recognizing Threats, Defending Your Rights, and Protecting Your Family highlights the many positive outcomes of digital surveillance and data collection while also outlining those forms of data collection to which we do not always consent, and of which we are likely unaware, as well as the dangers inherent in such surveillance and tracking.
Payton and Claypoole also suggest remedies from tools, to behavior changes, to speaking out to politicians to request pro-privacy legislation and policies. Anyone who uses digital devices for any reason will want to read this book for its clear and no-nonsense approach to the world of big data and what it means for all of us.
