Privacy Tip #295 – Privacy Concerns in 2021

As we work through the second half of 2021, not quite out of the pandemic, still working remotely sometimes or all the time, data privacy and security concerns are more important today than ever before.

The changing landscape of technology, the increased sophistication of organized crime using digital tools, and the continued lack of awareness of data privacy and security concerns are making 2021 more hazardous than previous years.

In that context, I ran across a useful and easy to understand article yesterday about the top privacy concerns in 2021 that I thought was worthwhile to share. The World Beast published Addressing The Digital Privacy Concerns in 2021 on August 3, 2021.

The article addresses some of my top privacy concerns in a user-friendly way, and I encourage you to take a look if you are interested. If you are concerned about the conclusions, take mitigation steps to protect your privacy. It takes time, but staying on top of how you are tracked and how your information is used is the first step in protecting yourself.
