Product Description

Privacy is a fundamental human right. But is our privacy increasingly under threat? This book examines what privacy means and why it is important. It also looks at the controversial ‘Snooper’s Charter’, data privacy, hackers and the rise of wearable technology. Also explored are issues surrounding surveillance, the rules regarding CCTV and the ethics of DNA databases. The third and final chapter looks at privacy in relation to The Internet of Things, including how your Smart TV could be spying on you and whether it’s a breach of children’s privacy when their parents post baby pictures on social media.

The information inside comes from a variety of sources, including newspapers, magazines, government reports and charity groups; providing different perspectives on challenging topics. At the end of the book is a selection of activities that will encourage interaction, literacy, critical thinking and independent research. Content is accessible and engaging, tailored primarily towards the 14 to 18 age group.
