Data and information is being shared online at an unprecedented rate. In fact, one in three anglophone Canadians say that not a single day goes by without checking into their social media feeds. Coupled with the increase usage of such applications is the concern over how much information is being shown and who may have access to such information. Has the government been doing enough to protect Canadians? Is the industry being proactive or reactive? Will government institutions such as CSIS and CSES increase their monitoring of users in light of recent events? We continue to explore current situation in the final episode of our two-part series. What does the future hold and what can social media user do to protect their personal information?
