In stock

Book - softbound

Data privacy impacts many aspects of our interconnected life, but can present considerable challenges for anyone attempting to navigate the maze of laws, self-regulation, and best practices that apply to the field. Understanding Privacy and Data Protection provides a timely and succinct survey for understanding the trends that impact data privacy in the age of online behavioral advertising and social networks.

Written by a lawyer specializing in data privacy and security matters, the book goes beyond the headlines to provide guidance about existing U.S. and international laws and the technological developments that impact privacy. The author explores numerous topical issues and controversies, including the impact of U.S. government surveillance on privacy, biometric identifiers, cloud computing, the Internet of things, big data, and privacy by design. The book also provides a guide to the current cybersecurity landscape, including the significant impact of unauthorized data breaches, such as hacking attacks, on businesses and individuals. This non-technical book also describes some of the practical steps that may be taken to protect privacy and security, as these fields continue to evolve.
