PRISM and YOUR data security

PRISM

Have you heard of PRISM lately? Do you know what it is ?

Edward Snowden… Have you heard of him ?

Something to do with whistle-blowing about data security right? Yep….

If you’re anything like me there so much information about these days that you just selectively filter what you take notice of. Sometimes the important things go un-noticed. I suggest that to a large part of the UK population one of those things is PRISM.

What is it? In two words it’s a snooper’s charter. It gives license to involved parties to look through your data, if it’s held in the US.

Now perhaps you think you don’t have any data stored in America? Well… what about the online cloud backup you have that keeps your valuable data safe should your computer crash?? If that cloud data is stored anywhere with US jurisdiction then your data can be looked through legally…

Now what about the companies who you deal with.. Where is their data stored? Is it in the US? If it is then same thing… your data can be read thought about.. Legally.

It’s the world we live in.
