Data is one of the most valuable commodities in the world right now.

Companies such as Facebook and Google track you in order to sell highly personalized advertising space to the highest bidder. They know who your friends are, what you’re interested in, how likely you are to watch a certain video, your political leanings, and even which websites you visit.

Governments watch your every move by passing laws to force ISPs to provide information on every single character you type into a search engine, and every webpage you visit. They know your precise location at any time through triangulation of your mobile phone and can follow you using huge networks of CCTV cameras.

They even constantly try to undermine the very safety that protects us all from having our data wide visible to anyone who looks – strong encryption.

Hackers and cybercriminals are constantly on the lookout for vulnerable systems used by companies to store users data use sophisticated social engineering attacks to trick people into handing their data over willingly.

Major data breaches happen at an alarming rate and continue to increase in frequency. A US computer is targetted in a hacking attempt every 25 seconds, and the cost of cybercrime on the global economy is set to reach $6 Trillion in 2021.

When your data falls into the wrong hands the consequences can be profound. Ranging from having to change your passwords, having your personal emails published, your website memberships becoming public knowledge, all the way up to being denied credit in the future because someone has used your name to take out a loan – this really happens.
