The place where Privacy Matters

Thanks for your interest in the ground truth source for digital security, cyber privacy, and risk — one newsletter at a time.

Am I a good fit for Privacy Matters?

We use our experience to explore the intersection of personal privacy and technology in the context of current events and future trends, and share the insights directly with you.

You may find yourself right at home if you desire to:

  • Save the world by preventing Chinese hackers from accessing your email (half-joking)

  • Stay current on privacy, espionage, and security-related news

  • Enhance your personal digital security and privacy

  • Spend less time on work emails

There’s no 401K, but you receive other benefits here as well, like direct updates right to your inbox.

About us

We served in various intelligence and special operations capacities with the U.S. Government. Now we share what we’ve learned to help deepen your understanding of technology and its impact on individual privacy and security — one newsletter at a time.

The truth shall make you free

Our value proposition to you is offering ground truth — direct observation and experience — of digital security, cyber privacy, and risk because we’ve lived it. A Privacy Matters subscription means you won’t have to worry about missing anything, as every new edition of the newsletter goes straight to your inbox.

Privacy Matters means a practitioner’s perspective. Our unique insights set the conditions for you to learn, understand, and keep your options open in the digital space. It also means less time on work emails (don’t tell Bill from HR or it means another talk on workplace productivity).

Seize the day (and your data)

Either you drive your cyber privacy and digital security or someone else (most likely contenders are government and corporate surveillance) will do it for you. Be part of a community of people who share your interests in seizing not only the day, but their data.

Another benefit of a Privacy Matters subscription is our free periodical brief Covert Comms, where you receive current events, risk, digital security, and privacy-related insights from us. We deliver it on a weekly(ish) basis directly to your inbox, because we don’t like bloated bureaucracies.

Subscribe now to receive relevant current events curated for you pertaining to our bread and butter of personal privacy and technology, and hear our unique perspective on them — all so that you can deepen your understanding of their impact on your personal and professional lives.

We are an informal publication of Signature Management Unit, a private intelligence, risk, and security firm from Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
