The Art of Invisibility: The Worlds Most Famous Hacker Teaches You How to Be Safe in the Age of Big Brother and Big Data by Kevin D. MitnickKevin Mitnick, the worlds most famous hacker, teaches you easy cloaking and counter-measures for citizens and consumers in the age of Big Brother and Big Data.
Like it or not, your every move is being watched and analyzed. Consumers identities are being stolen, and a persons every step is being tracked and stored. What once might have been dismissed as paranoia is now a hard truth, and privacy is a luxury few can afford or understand.
In this explosive yet practical book, Kevin Mitnick illustrates what is happening without your knowledge--and he teaches you the art of invisibility. Mitnick is the worlds most famous--and formerly the Most Wanted--computer hacker. He has hacked into some of the countrys most powerful and seemingly impenetrable agencies and companies, and at one point he was on a three-year run from the FBI. Now, though, Mitnick is reformed and is widely regarded as the expert on the subject of computer security. He knows exactly how vulnerabilities can be exploited and just what to do to prevent that from happening.
In THE ART OF INVISIBILITY Mitnick provides both online and real life tactics and inexpensive methods to protect you and your family, in easy step-by-step instructions. He even talks about more advanced elite techniques, which, if used properly, can maximize your privacy. Invisibility isnt just for superheroes--privacy is a power you deserve and need in this modern age.

It seems to get whatever it wants, despite, or perhaps because of, its treatment of its workers, suppliers, and competitors.

Thanks to the technology of efficiency and immediacy it houses, Barcelona is now one of the 45 cities in the world where the company guarantees delivery of products in an hour. Expropriation is literal and physical, but also symbolic. As I will never tire of repeating: Amazon is not a bookshop, it is a hypermarket. Its warehouses store books next to toasters, toys or skateboards. In its new physical bookshops books are placed face up, because they only display the 5, best-selling books most sought after by their customers, a lot less than the number on the shelves of genuine bookshops that are prepared to take risks. Amazon is now considering whether to repeat the same operation with a chain of small supermarkets.

If you're reading this, you're reading it on some sort of electronic device that's connected to the internet. Chances are, you do more than just read on your devices: email long ago superseded the post, social media keeps us in touch with friends and family, and online retailers offer low prices, wide selection, and the satisfaction of shopping in your yoga pants. It's not just that the Web is the most convenient way to do things; the Web is becoming the only way to do things. But the internet is also more convenient for criminals, those who would steal your credit, file fraudulent tax returns, or publish compromising information for the whole world to see. And there's there's the catch: We have to feed more and more personal information into the internet, but most of us don't have the knowledge or patience to adequately protect ourselves against it. It's a destructive compulsion: the recurring crush we know doesn't have our best interests at heart, the irresistible urge to mix one too many metaphors. We're going to have to get smart about it, because despite what anyone says, we're probably hopefully not going back to couriers , pigeon or otherwise.
