For the Data Privacy Day, Silent Circle partnered with The Guardian and released a short documentary about the global privacy in the digital age.
The Data Privacy Day is designed to raise awareness and promote best practices for privacy and data protection. That’s why this film was made: to reveal how our data can be misused and what is the benefit of privacy for businesses.
At Secure Swiss Data we believe that your privacy is an essential prerequisite of your civil liberties and human rights. No one should be allowed to be snooping around your private thoughts, and no global advertising organisation should be able to profit from data mining your communications. Privacy is not about having something to hide, it’s about the right to control what you want to share and what you want to keep to yourself. If you think about it, we all have something to lose, if its those private photos or that critical competitor sensitive information. Privacy is your fundamental human right, enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, something that a lot of people are trying to break down with every excuse in law in order to make money.
Whilst those wishing to collect this information will say if you have nothing to hide it shouldn’t matter, for those of us with a brain, you may not feel that this is the smartest thing to do, and we don’t blame you.
