The World Wide Web stands as one of the greatest mechanisms for surveillance and control: Queen's University expert
Queen’s University surveillance and security expert Adam Molnar is available to comment on the World Wide Web turning 25 today and how privacy has changed over the years.
“Nearly everything we do today involves the Internet. From our places of employment, health service delivery, banking, the ubiquitous use of smart-phones, and the widespread use of social media, the Internet has become a vital component of contemporary life,” says Dr. Molnar. “Once hailed as a new dawn of enhanced freedom, liberty, and democracy—and particularly after the Snowden revelations—the Internet now stands as one of the greatest mechanisms for surveillance and control.”
