I’ve recently been thinking about what I consider to be called the ‘Tech Privacy Stack’. There is a lot of talk about privacy and security all over the Internet with pieces point to certain aspects on how to protect privacy. I think there is a holistic approach to privacy that encompasses all areas of our technological lives and we often take a complete approach to this. There are of course farther stretching privacy aspects that I won’t consider here in these posts, as I intend to only focus on technology type concerns.
I think it’s important to consider the whole ‘stack’ per say because if we only consider certain aspects of the ‘stack’ then we might not really gain much benefit to making things more ‘private’ and could be counter-intuitive to the things we think are adding a benefit.
My hope is to look at this idea of a ‘privacy stack’ in further posts to help aid you, the reader, in things to consider when evaluating your privacy.
Some questions to think about:
- What things am I putting in place today that protect my privacy?
- Where are areas that I could improve?
- What is something you wish you knew how to solve regarding privacy?
- What are your goals in protecting your privacy? Who are you trying to protect your privacy from?
