We live in digital world, and with that shift to technology comes the unfortunate consequence of the invasion of our privacy. On a daily basis, we hear of data breaches, mobile phone hacking, phishing scams and ATM skimmers. Many of us have been impacted by exposure of our personal protected information (PII).
With all the attention focused on cybersecurity and cybercrime, we can lose sight of the more conventional means of privacy invasion that are no less a threat. Yes, spies still use hidden cams, electronic eavesdropping devices, GPS trackers and other methods that are not "cyber" related.
Just this morning, three hidden camera related incidents were reported in the news:

Any invasion of privacy impacts the victim. The feelings of vulnerability are quickly replaced by the need to restore privacy. How do you know if you are a victim of illegal eavesdropping? If you can answer any of these questions with a YES, then you may be bugged: http://comsecllc.com/am-i-bugged/
