Big Brother is watching.
On full display in the explosive Twitter and Facebook files, government collusion with Big Tech is well documented.
As a small and medium-sized (SMB) business owner, this should concern you. Especially if your views are right of center.
My goal is to help you navigate the surveillance state. Safeguarding your investment.
Read on for helpful tips.
Understanding Your Business’ Privacy Threat
Written 75 years ago, George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four coined the term “Big Brother.”
He is the leader of a totalitarian state. Whom nobody has ever met.
The book leaves you hanging whether he actually exists.
Apparently, Orwell knew something few did back then. Allow me to explain.
Your typical day might look like this:
- Alexa turns on the lights and plays music
- Search engine presents the news
- Facial recognition cameras at stop lights
- Car collects your GPS information
- Purchases are recorded
During waking hours, you are being trailed. Previously unknown terms like geofence warrants and data brokers are coming to the light.
These dealers and our own government are complicit in this tracking.
You’ll be surprised to find that Big Brother is a machine of our own creation.
We all are responsible. Because we traded technological convenience for security.
Growing too big for eradication, managing its access to you is possible.
Next, I’ll give you the weapons to fight back.
Reducing the Privacy Threat Through Vigilance
Knowledge is power. And alertness guards your privacy.
I want to empower you with both.
- Turn off your phones when not in use
- Turn on privacy mode
- Inspect apps for security/privacy features
- Use private DNS tools
For some, the idea of not having their phone on 24/7 creates anxiety. But when working at the office, power it down.
Brave Browser is one that offers a true incognito search. Chrome advertises it, but a recent court settlement says otherwise.
For applications on your mobile or desktop, limit their access to tracking and protected information.
Sure, this requires an extra step. But you’ll remove a back door that the government can exploit.
A private DNS resolver or VPN prevents surveillance and censorship. DNS resolvers have proven resistant to demands for unconstitutional online silencing. And VPNs encrypt your web searching.
Either option works and ultimately deliver the same result.
To conclude, I want to add the most secure layer of defense to your business.
