Security expert and Wickr co-founder Nico Sell addresses the ease with which companies and governments listen in on our personal conversations to find and exploit private information. Sell admonishes tech firms for selling the private information of users to data brokers and warns that many companies are all too happy to divulge private conservations to government surveillance units, bringing us ever closer to an Orwellian world. She reminds us that resistance is possible, and that by encrypting our conservations and data and tracking our digital footprint, we can protect and secure our private communications from prying eyes.
