It’s time to take a cold hard look at the state of digital privacy in light of the myriad data breaches and hacking scandals. Whether it’s your smartphone, laptop or the Internet of Things (IoT), a connected ecosystem of electronic devices, cybercriminals and others in close proximity and Internet access beyond can intercept the transmission of sensitive information including using your own devices’ equipment to record photos and audio.
“Your bedroom should be safe from prying eyes and ears, but it is not if you have the latest television or other electronic device required by law enforcement to be embedded with surveillance technology,” said Gary Miliefsky, CEO of SnoopWall, and IT security and counterveillance expert.

With recent news of Russian hackers breaching J.P. Morgan Chase bank where the FBI confirms that bank accounts were tampered with, and while commercial banks continue to push “mobile deposits” where you photograph your check and it should be credited to your bank account, counterveillance expert, Gary Miliefsky, believe consumers need to be warned and advised how to take protective action.
