Summary
"World Without Secrets explores the realities and implications of a world in which anyone who wants badly enough to know anything about you, your business, or anything else will be able to get that information. It examines the information-gathering technologies that are and will be deployed - on our streets, in our offices and public buildings, even in our homes and cars - and explains their benefits as well as potential serious abuses." "World Without Secrets also takes you into the "shadow world" of state and private-sector criminals whose livelihood is based on illicit use of growing mountains of information. It offers strategies for surviving and succeeding in a world that is rife with opportunity but dangerous for the wary and unwary alike. And it suggests policy options that can protect individuals and organizations from exploitation and safeguard the implicit contract between employees, businesses, and society itself."--BOOK JACKET
