TECHNOLOGY AND PRIVACY IN THE NEW MILLENNIUM


Rarely does a university class undertake a project as thought provoking and complex as writing a book about the topic of the course. The book you have in your hand results from just such an endeavor.

Privacy issues will most likely continue to be contentious as technology can easily be used as a tool for invasion. The chapters in this book discuss those issues, they provide insight and opinions, and in certain cases, they propose solutions for major problems an individual may encounter when his or her identity is stolen through the use of electronic technology, or when biometrics fail to secure private medical information, or when electronic voting machines can be used to manipulate election returns.
