Is there a risk that one day, we will wake up and see that we no longer have the right of privacy? The Guardian published a paper on 5th June 2013, which was based on the information leaked by an employee of the NSA, Edward Snowden, and demonstrated that the surveillance society is not a dystopian future anymore. Then, to what extent are we aware of that reality? Are we conscious of the consequences and the problems of such a society?

In the 21st century, we are all the consumers of digital services provided by the governmental agencies, social media companies, banks and so on. The fear towards the threat of international terrorism has caused a relative sympathy for surveillance on the pretext of national security. Besides, struggling to have an analog life out of this digital world which leaks into all circuits of life ends up drawing more attention, since trying not to leave electronic marks means to face up to plenty of drudgery.

Privacy: Private Life in a Digital Society reveals how emerging technologies directly threaten private life. It includes required legislative regulations to protect privacy that is violated through personal data saved, and shared with intelligence services and marketed to commercial companies, and discusses how to build an equilibrium that ensures the development of useful digital devices and services regarding confidentiality.
