'An essential guide to one of the most pressing modern issues.' HANNAH FRY'Essential reading for those of us who click 'agree' ten times a day.' JONATHAN WOLFFThe first book to call for the end of the data economy. Carissa Veliz exposes how our personal data is giving too much to big tech and governments, why that matters, and what we can do about it.Have you ever been denied insurance, a loan, or a job? Have you had your credit card number stolen? Do you have to wait too long when you call customer service? Have you paid more for a product than one of your friends? Have you been harassed online? Have you noticed politics becoming more divisive in your country? You might have the data economy to thank for all that and more. The moment you check your phone in the morning you are giving away your data. Before you've even switched off your alarm, a whole host of organisations have been alerted to when you woke up, where you slept, and with whom. Our phones, our TVs, even our washing machines are spies in our own homes.Without your permission, or even your awareness, tech companies are harvesting your location, your likes, your habits, your relationships, your fears, your medical issues, and sharing it amongst themselves, as well as with governments and a multitude of data vultures. They're not just selling your data. They're selling the power to influence you and decide for you. Even when you've explicitly asked them not to. And it's not just you. It's all your contacts too, all your fellow citizens. Privacy is as collective as it is personal.Digital technology is stealing our personal data and with it our power to make free choices. To reclaim that power, and our democracy, we must take back control of our personal data. Surveillance is undermining equality. We are being treated differently on the basis of our data.What can we do? The stakes are high. We need to understand the power of data better. We need to start protecting our privacy. And we need regulation. We need to pressure our representatives. It is time to pull the plug on the surveillance economy. Insightful, terrifying, practical: Privacy is Power highlights the implications of our laid-back attitude to data and sets out how we can take back control.If you liked The Age of Surveillance Capitalism, you'll love Privacy is Power because it provides a philosophical perspective on the politics of privacy, and offers very practical solutions, both for policymakers and ordinary citizens.

HP Certified Systems Administrator (2nd Edition)
105,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Like the first edition of this book, the second edition also covers three main objectives ¿ to provide a comprehensive resource to individuals, including novice, IT/Non-HP-UX administrators, and HP-UX administrators who intend to take the new HP Certified Systems Administrator exam HP0-095 and pass it; to provide a quick and valuable on-the-job resource to HP-UX administrators, administrators of other UNIX operating systems, IT managers, programmers, and DBAs working in the HP-UX environment; and to provide an easy-to-understand guide to novice and IT/non-HP-UX administrators who intend to learn HP-UX from the beginning. This book contains 38 chapters and is structured to facilitate readers to grasp concepts, understand implementation procedures, understand basic troubleshooting, learn command syntax, configuration files, and daemons involved. The 38 chapters are divided into three key areas: UNIX Fundamentals, HP-UX System Administration, and HP-UX Network Administration. 1. UNIX Fundamentals (chapters 1 to 6 and 23) covers the basics of UNIX. Most information is not specific to a particular UNIX flavor, rather includes general UNIX concepts, file manipulation and security techniques, vi editor, shell and awk programming, basic commands, and other essential topics. Unlike many other similar books, a chapter on shell scripting is presented after covering HP-UX System Administration area. This is done purposely to supply readers with practical examples based on the knowledge they gain from UNIX Fundamentals and HP-UX System Administration chapters. 2. HP-UX System Administration (chapters 7 to 22) covers the HP-UX-specific system administration concepts and topics, including system partitioning and HP-UX installation; software and patch management; user and group administration; LVM and VxVM management; file system and swap administration; system shutdown and startup procedures; kernel configuration and reconfiguration techniques; backup and restore functions; printer and print request management, job automation and process control; and system logging and performance monitoring. 3. HP-UX Network Administration (chapters 24 to 38) covers HP-UX network administration concepts and topics, such as OSI and TCP/IP reference models; network hardware overview and LAN card administration; IP subnetting and routing techniques; basic network testing and troubleshooting; internet services and sendmail; time synchronization (NTP) and resource sharing (NFS, AutoFS, and CIFS) services; naming (DNS, NIS, and LDAP) and boot services; automated installation techniques and high-availability concepts; and system security and hardening. Each chapter begins with a list of major topics to be covered in the chapter and ends with a summary. Throughout the book, tables, figures, screen shots, and examples are given for explanation purposes. The output generated because of running commands and shell scripts is highlighted in light grey background to differentiate from surrounding text. The book includes several appendices, one of which contains 672 practice exam questions. Answers to practice exam questions and tables of commands, important files, and service daemons are included in appendix area as well.

Wyntk: Unix System Admininistrator
35,99 € *

If you use UNIX, you know that it can be a technically challenging environment. And if you're like most users, you have a job to do aside from exploring your operating system -- like analyzing that hot new stock, running another experiment, or typesetting another report. What happens when you have problems? What happens when the system slows to a crawl, when you can't get logged back in after a power failure, or when you've sent a file to the printer three times but have yet to find a printout? Your first choice for handling a problem might be to have the problem never occur. Your second choice might be to have someone else fix it, immediately. However, in the real world, sometimes you will have to investigate the problem and report it, and sometimes you will have to find an answer yourself. When You Can't Find Your UNIX System Administrator, part of our new What You Need to Know series, gives UNIX users tools for solving problems. It offers: * Practical solutions for problems you're likely to encounter in logging in, running programs, sharing files, managing space resources, printing, and so on * Just enough background on what's going on 'behind the scenes' so that you can make sense of our suggestions, rather than simply memorizing keystrokes * An explanation of how to present problems to your sys admin so that you're more likely to get quick, accurate support * A list of the site-specific information to which you should have access, and a place to write it down * A quick-ref card summarizing what to try first, second, third for commonly encountered problems The goal of this book is not to make you a guru in your own right. The goal of this book is to get you back to the job you'd rather be doing.
