In 2013, Edward Snowden fundamentally disrupted our understandings of privacy and surveillance. The scope, scale, and intensity of modern government surveillance is tremendous to the point of appearing inescapable. Yet, government surveillance is only one concern in the information age: corporations vacuum our data to create digital doppelgangers that they hope will enable them to sell us their endless product lines. Meanwhile, the databases in which our doppelgangers rest are continually being bought, sold, and stolen, with the latter being the product of ever-more-rapid technological development at the cost of security. Indeed, we now find ourselves grasping for the shadow of privacy in the face of the modern chimera of surveillance.
Despite these challenges, privacy is not dead. Every time we are pushed closer to the wall, many have pushed back by creating tools and techniques that provide a handle on our privacy. Whether it is quantum-proof encryption or a simple add-on that blocks advertisements, there are steps we can take, however small, that limit the ability for adversaries to siphon our data. There is no silver bullet, but by continuing to develop new tools and learning how to use them we push further back in favor of privacy. The Tin Hat teaches you how to make this push by providing clear, understandable information and tutorials on modern privacy tools that help you reclaim your data.
