This week, a federal judge in Atlanta, Georgia wisely ordered the state to be ready to use paper ballots for the 2020 election, if it fails to meet a tight deadline to implement an entirely new voting system.
This week, we call out vendors of voting machines and software that are falling short on election security, as well the governmental entities that need to wake up before election results get changed (and not just by 11 year-old hackers).
This week, we consider the intersection of privacy and politics, and in the process, get apocalyptic about election interference, and apoplectic about governmental entities who contract without appropriate due diligence. Did you know that Georgia just awarded a contract valued at over $100M to a vendor who does not have a privacy notice on its website?
This week, we consider the FTC’s settlement with Facebook and its (potentially) profound consequences for privacy violations.
This week, we take on a privacy law hypothetical about how late-order inferences may be drawn and used to predict what you will like, will support or oppose, will vote for or against, will buy or turn away.
This week, we consider de-identification of data as a mechanism for mitigating privacy risk, and ask this question: Is it time to regulate scrubbed data too?
This week, we continue our shift from current events to focus on data privacy rights, and in particular, the rights of access and deletion of personal information, and in doing so, consider the broader themes underlying privacy.
This week, we turn from current events to focus on the data supply chain, where personal information is transferred from citizen consumers to companies far-far away.
This week, we challenge privacy pacifists who say, “I have nothing to hide, so I have nothing to fear” with our counterargument, along with two recent articles about surveillance that everyone should read.
This week, we highlight a DMN opinion column about how the Texas Consumer Privacy Act died, who killed it, and what it means for web privacy.
