There is a fine line between the government monitoring digital communications for matters of national security and invading the privacy of its citizens. In this video, Adam Levin, chairman and founder of CyberScout and author of Swiped, explains some of the ways in which the government monitors our computer communications and also why it is important that we as a society have an open debate about the implications of this monitoring. The key thing to keep in mind is that what we say on the phone and what we write in e-mails is not necessarily private. People need to be careful about what they say and where they say it. Social media in particular may be monitored by more than just our friends.
