From the controversy surrounding Edward Snowden’s security leak of classified information, to hacked email accounts of prominent politicians, internet privacy and cyber security present major ethical issues in today’s technology-centric society. Countries are challenged to find the right balance in securing personal data and how to regulate the sale and exchange of information obtained on the internet. Innovative technologies and data collection that enable novel modes of interaction and new opportunities for knowledge can also be abused to invade people’s privacy, provide new tools of discrimination, and harm individuals and communities. This title will address both sides of this complex topic.
