In the current and future world of communication, scientific
publication and pre-publication, grants and application, we
must be cautious of hacking and security.  A readable publication
worth while sharing is Hacking and Data Privacy .

.
On my reporting on the topic of the chemical enterprise this
year where we have covered surveillance topics, this book
is brought to your attention.  Leading take-aways include
.
1.  Nicole Perlroth on Cyber security
Spies and cyber criminals may be able to digitally access
any information they want.
   a.  Online, use 2-factor authentication
        Use GMail and Chrome web browser, as most secure
email and web platform
         Use encryption apps for sensitive online
communication [Signal, Telegram, etc]
         Never allow access to personal information [location]
         good password hygiene [phrases I can recall]
[carefully watch what is written online
cover computer camera when not in use]
.
2.  Resolutions
 - Update your software
 - Read Privacy policies for understanding
 - Delete unnecessary Aps
 - Use VPN
 - Protect your hardware with cases
.
3.  Windows world
 - Use Anti-virus software, update regularly, scan
regularly and when suspicious
of an encounter
 - Be wary of suspicious  emails, pup ups
and links
 - Have backups and a back up plan
 - Have a plan if you are infected
[know what to do immediately, plan to have
links on
desktop, document so you can recover]
