Privacy and Windows 10

So as you may have seen by now, Windows 10 has caused quite a few differing opinions on privacy and security. Lots of people have posted about different things from the information that gets sent to Microsoft to the new Wifi features.

If you have nothing to hide then in reality you don’t really need to worry, or do we live in a world where we are now all paranoid about our privacy?

I began my career as a Trainer of all things computer related. However, I very quickly realized that programming, breaking, and hacking was a lot more fun. I then spent the next few years working on core infrastructure and security services, until I found SharePoint. I am now the founder and owner of SharePlicity, a consulting company that focuses on all areas of Technology. My role within SharePlicity is to help organizations implement technology that will enhance internal and external collaboration, document and records management, automate business processes and of course security controls and protection. I am also an eleven-time Microsoft MVP focusing on Architecture but also cross the boundary into Development. My specialty over the past few years has been security in SharePoint and its surrounding platforms. I can also be found at user groups or conferences speaking, offering advice, spending time in the community, teaching my kids how to code, raspberry PI programming, hacking the planet or building Lego robots.
