Should states be allowed access to all communications? What level of privacy should an individual expect? Who owns the Internet? In this fascinating starting point to understanding the wider subject of the Internet and Internet safety, explore these questions through topics like:
  • Spying
  • Encryption
  • Security
  • Hacking techniques
  • Cyber warfare
  • Cryptocurrencies
  • The Dark Web
The What's the Issue? series tackles engaging, thought-provoking subjects chosen from the headlines and public debates. What's the Issue? asks “what’s all the fuss about?,” presents the key facts, reviews what’s at stake in each case, and weighs the pros and cons. The goal of the series is to help young people understand difficult concepts, provide them with the tools to inform their own opinions, and help them to see and influence changes within our society.
