Under Surveillance – a comic which highlights privacy issues

September 30, 2010 at 7:00 am 3 comments

Thanks to Gus Hosein of Privacy International for sharing this comic/graphic novel with us. It is a great resource for explaining to young people how important privacy is and how data one shares online or via mobile can be open to misuse.

It was produced with the financial support of the Fundament Rights & Citizenship Programme of the European Commission and is available as a free download.

Many of us (and I don’t mean just the kids who are Digital Natives) but also those of us in the older age bracket who are Digital Immigrants, are very naive about the sharing of personal data. This graphic novel brings out some of the dangers of not protecting yourself and your data in the digital arena.
