The Bureau of Investigative Journalism - In Video: Surveillance Explained

December 1st, 2011 | by Pratap Chatterjee | Published in All Stories, State of Surveillance - The Data
 

The Bureau of Investigative Journalism, working in collaboration with Wikileaks and Privacy International, has gained access to the sales and marketing material of 160 companies that sell state of the art surveillance technology to governments around the world.

Our investigation shows that this off the shelf gear allows its buyer to hack into the mobile phones, computers and internet accounts of virtually anyone in the world.

This video showcases interviews with Julian Assange of Wikileaks and Eric King of Privacy International explaining the power of these technologies to be abused by corrupt officials and undemocratic regimes.
