<p><em> Computers are woven into the fabric of our daily lives. They are the machines we use to create knowledge, they let us talk and write to each other, they are the cars, trains and planes that we use to move around.</em></p>

<p><em> Computers are so tremendously useful because they are general purpose machines. We routinely use them to create and do things that the people who built them never dreamed of.</em></p>

<h3>Abstract</h3>
<p><em>In ever shorter intervals we learn about new privacy threats. The reason for this flood of bad news is not due to technical failures ormore investigative journalism but due to the sheer amount of dataconveyed through the internet and solely under corporate or governmental control.</em></p>
<p><em>In ever shorter intervals we learn about new privacy threats. The reason for this flood of bad news is not due to technical failures or more investigative journalism but due to the sheer amount of data conveyed through the internet and solely under corporate or governmental control.</em></p>
<p><em>With more data collections most of that data will inevitable leak. With the old decentralized internet, this was not too much of a problem because, well, the net was decentralized by design. Economic interests have increasingly shifted this infrastructure into an oligarchy of data processing centers, each with hundreds of millions of users. Today they are central to the internet and thus are a single point of privacy failure. Users capable of reading the privacy policies should be aware of this problem, but they nevertheless close their eyes and take advantage of the promises of such aggregated data (known as “social networks”). The dangers of improper use of such data aggregation services is not instantly seen but may surface only a few years later. As if this weren’t bad enough, every year we have to notice that governments are interested in that data, and details leak every few years out of huge systems for global surveillance.</em></p>
<p><em>It is not anymore too far fetched to claim that we are now living in a surveillance world.</em></p>
<p><em>This talk explains reasons to take care of your data, examines real world privacy threats, and suggest ways to reconquer privacy: Using TOR for anonymity, Jabber with OTR for instant messaging, your own cloud for storing personal information, YaCy or DDG as alternative search engines, end-to-end encryption for email, and finally to prefer free software over likely backdoored non-free software.</em></p>
