Data Privacy and Protection in The Age of Transparency

July 7, 2015 by Bonnie D. Graham 0

The buzz: Peek-a-boo. I see you!

With information transparency fuelled by social aka human-created data, the collection and manipulation of our personal data by businesses is ubiquitous – and we’re not so sure we like it.

The challenge is not with social networks, but with the data collection policies of businesses that harvest and process data from these networks.

What are the ethical and legal implications? Do we have a say?

The experts speak:

Tim Barker, DataSift: “Computing is not about computers any more. It is about living.” (Nicholas Negroponte)

Nora Boukadid, EY: “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent…It is the one that is most adaptable to change.” (Leon C. Megginson)

Roger Gorman, ProFinda: To connect our collective wisdom and social capital, to change the world, is hindered often by data, policies and processes. If we can navigate this, it’s time for data-driven serendipity.”
