Kevin Mitnick, the world’s most famous hacker, teaches you easy cloaking and countermeasures for citizens and consumers in the age of Big Brother and Big Data.

Like it or not, your every move is being watched and analyzed. Consumers’ identities are being stolen, and a person’s every step is being tracked and stored. What once might have been dismissed as paranoia is now a hard truth, and privacy is a luxury few can afford or understand.

In this explosive yet practical book, Kevin Mitnick illustrates what is happening without your knowledge – and he teaches you “the art of invisibility”. Mitnick is the world’s most famous – and formerly the most wanted – computer hacker. He has hacked in to some of the country’s most powerful and seemingly impenetrable agencies and companies, and at one point he was on a three-year run from the FBI. Now, though, Mitnick is reformed and is widely regarded as the expert on the subject of computer security. He knows exactly how vulnerabilities can be exploited and just what to do to prevent that from happening.

In The Art of Invisibility Mitnick provides both online and real-life tactics and inexpensive methods to protect you and your family, in easy step-by-step instructions. He even talks about more advanced “elite” techniques, which, if used properly, can maximize your privacy. Invisibility isn’t just for superheroes – privacy is a power you deserve and need in this modern age.

This book addresses a great topic: The Art of Invisibility This book addresses a great topic: The Art of Invisibility. The subtitle could have easily been: Why you do it, how you do it and what happens to you if you don’t do it.I’ve read all of Kevin’s books and I always keep a ballpoint pen and bright yellow marker at hand so that I can mark those special tidbits I want to remember, or refer back to at a later date. This book is so chucked full of information, I literally highlighted almost every paragraph and page.The theme of…

Your potential employer saw your browsing history. You should have read this book before applying! Where do I begin? I’ve been a computer geek my entire life. Well, since 1982, anyway. My dad bought me a Commodore 64 computer back then. I can’t hardly remember a single day that has passed since then that I haven’t had a computer in front of me at some point during the day. Heh, I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing!Anyway, as a developer and security enthusiast, I’ve always been interested in the hacking scene. Back then, when Kevin Mitnick and Kevin Poulson…
