Surveillance Self-Defense The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has created this Surveillance Self-Defense site to educate the American public about the law and technology of government surveillance in the United States, providing the information and tools necessary to evaluate the threat of surveillance and take appropriate steps to defend against it.
The Electronic Frontier Foundation's "Who Has Your Back?" report rates some big names on the Internet such as Amazon, Apple, Google, etc. on measures related to privacy and transparency. Sonic.net (a company I've never heard of before) is the only one to get all four stars; MySpace, Skype, Verizon, and FourSquare each get zero.
We’re thrilled to announce the relaunch of Surveillance Self-Defense (SSD), our guide to defending yourself and your friends from digital surveillance by using encryption tools and developing appropriate privacy and security practices. The site launches today in English, Arabic, and Spanish, with more languages coming soon.
