Big Data & Cyberlaw- A Basic Primer — Cyber law books by Pavan Duggal

Big Data & Cyberlaw- A Basic Primer Big data is a term that we are increasingly hearing these days. In fact, big data has already started impacting the mainstream operations of our daily lives, without us even realising the same. Companies and legal entities are increasingly relying upon big data, not just for the purposes […]

What Do Star Wars and Recent Data Breaches Teach Us About Cyber Ethics?

Could Privacy Law Limitations kill the Internet Dream?

Is Privacy a fundamental human right? Your personal answer to this question is the starting point to think about the current Internet legislation and to evaluate if the recent legal restrictions on civil rights could represent the “end of the Internet Dream.” A clear and motivated opinion about this issue is a strategic keypoint for all those people who, as me, operate everyday in one of the many Internet branches as consultants, lawyers, programmers, marketing experts, investors or, more often, as common users.

Dan Gillmor, via BACKCHANNEL, has recently underlined that a liberal legislation should not restrict end to end encryption, because it represents the best safeguards for tomorrow’s freedom. A standard use of fragile encryption, imposed by Law, will not only interfere with privacy, but will also heavily tamper with Internet global security.

On the other hand, Dan Patterson, via TECHREPUBLIC, has reported two different conversations with UN reporters who affirmed that strong encryption allows privacy and privacy is the corner stone of truth, especially for reporters, because it helps to “validate the veracity of information.”

Consequently, to preserve our privacy in our daily living it would be useful to:

  • Use Privilege VPN or  HTTPS connections when you surf Internet;
  • Use Encrypted Storage for your data, especially if you cannot avoid using cloud-based services;
  • Watch the Legislator: contact the MP/Politician who represents you and express your point of view, each time a restrictive Law proposal is under discussion.

As Citizens, the real challenge we have for the next months is represented by the influence we will be able to exercise on new Laws that should find a legal equilibrium between anti-terrorism surveillance and the need of protecting citizen’s personal information allowing the use of VPN/HTTPS connections and Encrypted Storage.
