Sherlock Holmes is the greatest detective of all time. He is driven to right the wrongs of the world. It is only natural that he should turn his attention to the Internet.
“The Internet has become a sinister and dangerous place – a grotesque parody of all that it originally promised,” explains Holmes. “Open your eyes, Watson. We are living in a postmodern surveillance dystopia from which escape for all but the most skilled individuals is impossible.”
Luckily, Holmes has all the right answers. This is a cyber-security and digital counter-surveillance handbook like no other.
Our two heroes embark on a perilous journey to the Dark Side learning along the way to avoid the traps laid by their adversaries – the State, the Corporate Giants and the Criminals and Insane.
From self-destructing messages to anonymous browsing, we visit alternative Internets and discover how to employ the Dark Arts for the power of good.
This is a Call to Arms. The time has come to reclaim the Internet from the commercial interests, the scammers and the surveillance state. And – as Sherlock Holmes clearly demonstrates – it is really simplicity itself.
This book may only take a few hours to read but it will change your life.
In the writing of this book, Dr Watson has called upon the services of Alan Pearce, a renown cyber-security expert and author of numerous books who lectures around the world and trains journalists and others in digital counter-surveillance.
