"Over the course of the last decade, the public’s knowledge of everything cyber has no doubt increased by several magnitudes, with industry jargon like hacker, phishing, ransomware, and more now inundating popular media and becoming part of the common vernacular. Most everyone today understands that their online activity is being tracked, that data is being aggregated to create a detailed profile of each of us, and that companies are leveraging this valuable data about our habits and inclinations in order to better focus their marketing on our particular interests. Even so, most people still have little to no understanding of just how pervasive this surveillance is and how dramatically it is eroding their privacy. In the first edition of Thersa Payton and Ted Claypoole articulated the impact that these seemingly innocuous technological advances have had on our daily lives and our lack of control when it comes to governing our personal information, how and when it is being collected, archived, analyzed, and ultimately leveraged for everything from marketing to dragnet-style law enforcement operations. This second edition dives even deeper into the insidious business of online surveillance and smart-gadget data collection that pervades our daily lives and offers insights into how individuals can take back some of that control. Privacy in the Age of Big Data <second edition> is an accessible and informative read whether you are super cyber-savvy or just beginning to wrap your head around how the rapid evolution of these technologies is impacting your life and the lives of your loved ones and is a must-read primer for understanding privacy in the twenty-first century…" ~Anthony M.
