Our privacy is eroding at a fast pace as we are increasingly using and forced to use electronic media for our daily tasks. In this talk we are argue that this is not only a privacy issue but as well a security problem. We show that lots of technologies exist that are ready to use but are not used, and give a couple of examples of such technologies and explain them. We finally discuss research and other challenges that still need to be overcome to a realise a more secure and privacy preserving digital world.
