The WikiLeaks scandal and the response to the leaked documents has fueled revolutions and challenged diplomacy. It is just one example of the complicated web of issues surrounding personal and public security in an increasingly digital world. Security in the Digital Age from Behind the Headlines explores issues of national and community security—terrorism on the Internet, cyberattacks, recordings of battle scenes. This offers teachers an opportunity to explore with students key issues in personal and national security, including the balance of personal freedom and public safety, identity theft, diplomacy in a world of no secrets, and freedom of speech vs. national security.
