The power of privacy

Can privacy really still exist in a world where we are continuously connected to the internet? In this video series, journalist, geek and former tv presenter, Aleks Krotoski, travels the world to explore the limits and potential of privacy in the 21st century, for business and individuals alike.

Then she travels to the US to meet Max, a professional digital detective. Armed with only her name, he’s challenged to gather as much information on her personal and business affairs as possible.
What he finds is staggering.

From the right to be forgotten to preventative techniques, Aleks Krotoski examines how businesses and individuals can take control back when it comes to their privacy
