Total Digital Control – Who Benefits? | I am Hacked. Episode 7

When it comes to individual privacy, most people tend to be wary of the new technology collecting all sorts of data about them – from their daily commute to consumer patterns. But when it comes to security, many of us seem to be ready to relinquish our own and our neighbours’ right to walk down the street anonymously. 

Until lately, total surveillance and thorough background checks seemed to be the attributes of dystopian fantasy fiction, but present-day reality proves otherwise. Our every step is being documented, our online communications are closely monitored. The world is gradually becoming more transparent, but even those who have nothing to hide can’t help but wonder what might happen if their private data falls into the wrong hands.

Watch the new episode of “I Am Hacked” to find out who benefits the most from the new digital transparency.
