TechCrunch is one of my favorite sites to get the latest tech gossip. Who wouldn’t want to know about Mark Zuckerberg’s personal life, Carol Bartz’s liberal use of the F-word, and of course breaking technology news?
Last week’s post by TechCrunch editor Michael Arrington caught my eye. Arrington emphatically states that Google employees found abusing user data should be criminally prosecuted. I couldn’t agree with him more. Google recently fired two employees for inappropriately accessing user data but hasn’t commented on whether employees will be charged with any crime.
With Google and other search engines having an un-Godly amount of user data, I wondered what life would be like if all of our data was secured. What if all our emails were encrypted and file attachments kept away from prying eyes?
For those trying to ensure that Yahoo/Bing and Google stay at arm’s length, might I suggest In-Private Browsing which prevents the browser from storing information on your browsing session.
As for protecting the integrity of email file attachments, Accellion offers a FIPS 140-2 certified solution that is secure enough for federal, state and local governments to quickly and easily send and receive files using the Accellion managed file transfer system. With Accellion, corporations and their employees can protect documents from prying eyes and meet compliance regulations.
