Big Brother, Big Business: The Data-Mining and Surveillance Industries

Digital technology plays an increasingly significant—and, many believe, unethical and intrusive—role in the lives of Americans. This CNBC program examines the rapidly growing data-mining and surveillance industries and brings examples of dubious and hurtful information sharing to light. Case studies include a man whose cell phone records were acquired by his former employer, a woman whose personal information was stolen from a company she had never heard of, and a man whose rental car company tracked his every move. The documentary also looks at how law enforcement agencies and even schools are using biometric technologies, and at an AOL division that provides members’ personal data to law enforcement. Not available in French-speaking Canada. Original CNBC broadcast title: Big Brother, Big Business. (78 minutes)
