Data Privacy

Cathy writes that rather than worrying about the NSA having your phone calls and emails, you should worry more about the insidious data brokers that are collecting information about you every time you log on to your laptop, use your cell phone, access an app or use your GPS. Cathy reveals ways in which your identity and personal data have been stolen and used by various sources. But more than warning you, she will give ways in which you can limit the amount of personal data that is being snatched and then divulged to whoever has a few dollars to buy it. Can you completely cut off the flow of information about yourself? The answer is no, not completely--there is too much data already out there and increasingly sophisticated ways to obtain bits and pieces. But knowing how it is collected gives you the power to limit the information on sites over which you do have control.





Cathy Nolan is a Data Analyst at Allstate Insurance and the co-author of the book “The Audacity to Spy” about personal data privacy. She wrote the book with her attorney granddaughter after she became a victim of identity fraud through the hacking of her credit card information. Because law enforcement was of little help, she began extensive investigation into credit card and identity theft. Her research led to this book which describes the many ways personal information is being compromised and how the average person can protect themselves and their digital assets. Cathy has an MBA in Business Administration and 30 years’ experience as an Information Analyst.
