Data Privacy Day is upon us, and today is the day you take back your online privacy. And I’m going to help you do it. There’s no more standing on the sidelines and hoping someone else will fix this for you. You need to get off your butt and do something – and today is the day to do it.

Corporations have sold loads of compelling and powerful “free” tools and services. But if the product is free, then you are the product. Making us watch ads was all well and good, until those ads started watching us back. They’ve gone too far and now we are duty-bound to push back. Privacy is a human right and our privacy has never been more in jeopardy that right now. Now is the time to assert your rights and make your voices heard.

Carey Parker began programming computers in middle school when personal computers were just starting to become popular. For years, these twin interests percolated until he attended Purdue University and he learned you could get paid to do this stuff – it was called Electrical Engineering! After obtaining a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in EE, Carey wrote software for multiple companies, large and small. In recent years, particularly after the Edward Snowden revelations in 2013, he became deeply concerned about computer security and privacy. In 2014, he combined his passion for computers, cybersecurity and fantasy novels with the long-time desire to write the book: Firewalls Don’t Stop Dragons.
