Digital Data Security and Privacy: Home

Welcome!

The pages in this guide gather resources around digital privacy as it relates to the protection (or lack thereof) of personal information gathered from an individual's digital activities and behaviors. While malicious hacking by "lone wolves" or small cohorts is a concern to digital privacy advocates and scholars, the greater focus of these resource pages is on commercial and governmental surveillance and surrounding civil rights considerations. The guide includes links to important books, journals, and films around these topics. There is also a section highlighting major legislation on privacy in the computer age. The Privacy/Reputation Management page includes resources on ways individuals can protect themselves from online threats and general unwanted tracking.
