Your Personal Data left in the open – AGAIN

Tuesday, June 20th, 2017

 

Once again the personal data and information (of around 200 million people) has been left hanging in the breeze for any nefarious or malicious group or entity to get a hold of and use for their purposes.  

Unfortunately, now we also know that various Foreign Govt entities also use this Data to advance their own national causes…and to weaken their opponents.

We urge everyone to contact their government representatives (local, state, and federal) and ask them to start taking this seriously and to work together to put in place various rules, laws, and mechanisms to stop this from happening so frequently.

US House votes to repeal FCC internet privacy protections

Wednesday, March 29th, 2017

So, this happened

Do we want ISP’s and 3rd Parties to ‘collect’ and ‘own’ then ‘sell’ our internet traffic and usage habits for marketing and other purposes? 

Shouldn’t that Data belong to us and ISP’s are only custodians or managers of it? 

Unfortunately, this further strips everyone of their internet privacy protections and online security. 

This may just be a stepping stone to government and corporations removing Net Neutrality and creating an unfair online marketplace with tiered access which would further erode our internet experience.
