WASHINGTON, Jan. 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The data war is in full swing. Governments, corporations, and malicious actors are all trying to gain access to your personal information. Data security has become just as important to the global economy and human rights as free speech and the rule of law. Coded, the latest series from Freethink, introduces viewers to the entrepreneurs, programmers and activists who are working to protect digital rights around the world.
"From the minute we are born we leave a digital footprint," said Clay Broga, co-founder of Freethink. "As technology continues to advance and we become more connected, we need to have serious conversations about our digital rights. Coded hopes to spark those conversations and inspire entrepreneurs to find answers to the tough questions of security and privacy in the 21st century."
Over the course of six episodes, Coded gives viewers unprecedented access to the companies and people who are helping to protect consumers and corporations from malicious attacks and unconstitutional breaches of their financial information, their identities, and their freedom. These entrepreneurs are taking on the challenges of secure communication, free press and even the security of your DNA.
Coded launched on January 23, delivering an episode each week for six weeks. Coded is the fourth original series released by Freethink. Freethink's first three series – Superhuman, The New Space Race, and Challengers – have been viewed more than 12 million times.

Freethink tells stories from the frontiers of our rapidly-changing world. Each week we release a powerful, short-form video from one of our original shows, profiling an innovator, entrepreneur or activist who is thinking differently and making a difference.
Freethink is the creator of the critically acclaimed Honor Flight. Hailed by the Los Angeles Times as "enormously moving," Honor Flight's world premiere broke the Guinness World Record for largest film screening in history with over 28,000 people in attendance.
