Justin Carroll is a veteran of fifteen years in the service of the United States Government. He is a plank owner with the elite Marine Special Operations Command (MARSOC), has worked on a contractual basis with another government agency, and has deployed to some of the world’s most dangerous and inhospitable places.
After completing his last overseas deployment Justin spent five years teaching digital security and identity management to hundreds of soldiers, sailors, and Marines of the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) and was instrumental in the development of a highly technical surveillance program currently in use abroad by US Special Operations Forces.
Justin is the author of Your Ultimate Security Guide: Windows 7 and Your Ultimate Security Guide: iOS and is currently co-writing The Complete Privacy & Security Desk Reference. Justin resides just outside of Phoenix, Arizona.
According to Justin, the government surveillance apparatus that is now pointed at American citizens is incredibly alarming. Unfortunately they government is not the only or even the most pervasive collector of data about individuals in this day and age.
Your personal emails, phone, and VoIP conversations are eavesdropped upon, your purchases are recorded, your movements are tracked, your “credit worthiness” is bought and sold. Your search history is compiled along with your FaceBook and Instagram pages.
All of this is used to create a profile about you that highlights your interests, sexual preferences, religion, income and education levels, and ultimately your level of compliance with an increasingly heavy-handed “system”. And it will never forget. Fortunately, you can opt out of almost all of this collection.
