Digital Data and You: Top Titles

By Julianne Jones | March 10 2020 | Promo Opportunity

In a world that is more digitally connected than ever, individual privacy has become an adamantly discussed issue. Approximately 57% of the global population has internet access, but thoughts on what the relationship between individuals, technology, and big data should look like vary widely.

Some people have full faith in the intricate network of online systems and trust their data is handled responsibly and ethically. Others are more skeptical, taking precautions to either safely share or guard their information from digital entities. And of course, there are a range of attitudes and strategies in between these extremes.

Regardless of one’s viewpoint, it is difficult to not be a digital citizen of some sort in our current connected environment. Reading up on the top-selling fiction and nonfiction titles that tackle this topic can help to make better-informed decisions on how to handle your own digital data.
