Security Culture

The National Security Agency or NSA is a wide reaching surveillance program tapped into our computers, social media accounts, emails and cell phones. Donald Trump and his administration will have access to all of your information. Your cell phone can be tracked and tell authorities exactly where you are. It’s imperative right now to secure your privacy. This also means that organizing online, especially through social media is not advisable. While we shouldn’t self-censor, as the Miranda Rights say: “Anything you say can and will be used against you.” Be smart and savvy.
