Global surveillance is already here !
CNBC Special Report: Technology is being used to monitor Americans more than ever before
Technology is allowing companies to monitor, compile and sell our most private personal information more than ever before. In a two-hour special, “Big Brother, Big Business” CNBC's David Faber reports on the benefits and risks in what is fast becoming a “surveillance society.”
Every day technologies are being used to monitor Americans with unprecedented scrutiny -- from driving habits to workplace surveillance. Shoppers and diners are observed and analyzed; Internet searches are monitored and used as evidence in court.
It is big business that collects most of the data about us. But increasingly, it's the government that's using it.
In a Special Report airing Thursday at 9pm and midnight ET, "Big Brother Big Business," CNBC takes a look at the companies behind the powerful business of personal information and the people whose lives are affected by it, including: a woman who lost her job due to mistaken identity; a man whose cell phone records were stolen by his former employer; a woman whose personal information was stolen from a company she had never heard of; a man who discovered his rental car company was tracking his every move.(http://www.msnbc.msn.com)
