Concerned about your privacy now that computers can track just about every area of your life? This book will make you worry even more as you read the gory details of ways computers have put our privacy in jeopardy. But you'll also learn what you can do to safeguard your electronic security.

This book tells how individuals can safeguard their electronic privacy using good encryption, proper data protection, and the right software. The Computer Privacy Handbook consists of four major sections. The first gives a vivid description of how computers have created a surveillance age that threatens each citizen's personal security. The second offers a nontechnical introduction to data encryption and the U.S. government's Clipper Chip surveillance proposal for a chip that can keep information secret but that can also allow federal agents to unscramble the code. The third section provides a socio-political overview of PGP (Pretty Good Privacy), the de facto world software standard for e-mail privacy. The last section is an easy-to-read PGP user's manual for the PC.Bacard, Andre is the author of 'Computer Privacy Handbook: A Practical Guide to E-Mail Encryption, Data Protection, and PGP Privacy Software' with ISBN 9781566091718 and ISBN 1566091713.
