The Policy ThinkShop: Research to help you understand internet security and social media privacy.
If you are serious about keeping up with technology and social media you better get up to speed on the current disclosures detailing the lack of security and privacy on the internet…. Not only from BIG BROTHER (government) but from anyone interested in peeking.
“Besides beefing up their internal security, many of America’s big firms have been lobbying Congress to rein the NSA in. But there is reason to think that technological changes could run ahead of legal ones. In some leaked slides, the NSA describes a lot of its programmes as “fragile”, Dr Green notes, suggesting that it worries they can be thwarted without too much trouble. And techno-fixes offer something laws do not. There are dozens of signals-intelligence agencies in the world, some of which serve pretty unsavoury governments. Laws can affect only one agency at a time. Cyber-criminals will, naturally, ignore them entirely. But techno-fixes work against everyone.”
