As we, in America, celebrate our Independence Day, we have tons to be thankful for, including all the freedom we embrace—from travel, to speech, and all the rights granted by our Constitution. We can scarcely imagine that our founding fathers could have predicted the rise of the Digital Age and how much we depend today on technology to express and secure our freedom and independence in 2019. With tech tools from smartphones to applications that can summon up almost any piece of information instantly, we have truly gained our independence to learn, ask questions, and watch as many cat videos as we desire. While we’re enabled by technologies to explore and enjoy this relatively new sphere of independence—in some ways these freedoms are very fragile–as they can all be easily jeopardized by a host of threat actors.
