@fightfortheftr is making the Internet more secure and I am taking part in #ResetTheNe on June 5th. Something to think about when it comes to our digital end point rights, we as innocent users of all the devices, technology and internet, never had any end point digital rights nor did we have safety and protection rights either. We give away our digital rights so that we can be connected to the world, there is nothing wrong with connecting to the world.
Unfortunately, technology companies and many global organizations we work with don’t protect us either!!
I should have safety endpoint right and when it comes to my digital protection and privacy rights I guess the digital game is changing after Edward Snowden exposed the truth. Many activists globally don’t have rights either. I was speaking of cyber threats and dangers since 2004 and when I first began my vision impacting and connecting youth globally, speaking about the digital end point rights for innocent humanity within the new media sector. Yes, for many organizations and technology companies it is about the profits and not about human cost in the 21st century digital age.
This caught my attention, NSA collects every call record and information transmitted via cell phone in Mexico.
Secret documents leaked by Edward Snowden and published by the digital magazine The Intercept reveal that The National Security Agency of the United States (NSA), collects every call record and information transmitted via cell phone in Mexico, as part of a program sponsored by the CIA.
The program, known as “MYSTIC”, is used to collect a cellphone’s metadata, specifically the origin of the call, destination, duration, location and related numbers, in five countries. Mexico is one of those countries, according to the report made by journalists Glenn Greenwald and Laura Poitras (who received the massive archive of classified documents leaked by Snowden and whose stories won the Pulitzer Prize for The Guardian) along with Ryan Devereaux from The Intercept.
