Transcript of PRIVACY

To begin with…
Governments collect massive amounts of data about individuals , organizations and people of interest for a variety of purposes such as : national security, demographics, strategy analysis & tax collection.

Corporations also do this for commercial reasons; to increase business, control expense, enhance profitability, gain market share, etc.

Technological advances in both hardware and software have significantly changed the scope of what can be amassed and processed.

Is your personal information really secure?
"We are rapidly entering the age of no privacy, where everyone is open to surveillance at all times; where there are no secrets from government. "
The dilemma...
Should an organizations' ability to collect and process data on exponentially increasing scales be limited in any way?

Does the fact that information can be architected for a particular purpose mean it should be, even if by so doing individual privacy rights are potentially violated?

If data meant for one use is diverted to another process which is socially moral and would result in a greater good or could result in a financial gain, does that justify the ethical dilemma, no matter how innocent and pure the motivation?
Does the availability of information justify its use?
-William Orville Douglas
Massive quantities of data, measured in petabytes and beyond, can be centrally stored and retrieved effortlessly and quickly.
Additionally, sources of data can be cross-referenced to glean new meanings when one set of data is viewed within the context of another.
The Solution...
The extent of this responsibility lies in the stewards of data. We realistically cannot invent a perfect solution to this ethical dilemma as information is made to be, and will be shared.

In addition, the internet and other social means, are a gateway through which we expose ourselves. This level of exposure certainly cannot guarantee privacy.

We are just left to trust that and ensure our personal data can be accessed by only those who are authorized to do so.
In the 1930s and 1940s the volumes of data available were miniscule by comparison and the "processing" of that data was entirely manual.

Had even a small portion of today's capabilities existed, the world as we now know it would probably be quite different.

Glabalization and the sharing of information today has reduced the privacy of the lives we live to a very small percent.

It is then up to us to safely protect our personal information by limting the data we put out in public places.
