Inside E Street

Getting to Know You

In this digital world, are you sure that someone isn’t watching you?

Today with everyone being "online," massive amounts of data are collected on us every day.  When you sign up for online services, you only have their word that they are not selling your personal information to other companies.  The industry gives consumers an option to opt-out of having data collected on them. But it also advises that if all consumers opted out of any and all data collection the lifeblood would be sucked from the Internet, and the free services we enjoy would flounder. 

Inside E Street takes a look on how much of your information in cyberspace is being harvested and what you can do to maintain digital security.
