Which Internet Companies Are Giving Our Private Data to the Government?
"The National Security Agency and the FBI are tapping directly into the central servers of nine leading U.S. Internet companies, extracting audio and video chats, photographs, e-mails, documents, and connection logs that enable analysts to track foreign targets, according to a top-secret document obtained by The Washington Post."* We now know that the NSA was and is getting phone records from millions of Americans, but the Washington Post has uncovered that the Obama administration is also overseeing data mining of 9 major internet companies under PRISM. A huge amount of personal data is being monitored more closely than most ever thought possible. Is this Obama's "change?"

Data mining: opening students' personal data up to private corporations?
Starting next year, the personal information of New York students will be stored in an online database created by the non-profit organization inBloom. Schools across the country are using the technology to help track students' academic progress and it's largely funded with money from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. However, parents and privacy advocates across the country say that the student's data could be at risk. Kade Crockford, director of the Technology for Liberty program with the American Civil Liberties Union's Massachusetts branch, joins us to discuss if parents should be concerned or not with the emerging practice.

Data Protection and Privacy
Increasingly, an ever-wider range of economic, political and social activities are moving online, encompassing various kinds of information and communications technologies (ICTs). The evolving ICT use is having a transformational impact on the way business is done, and the way people interact among themselves, as well as with government, enterprises and other stakeholders. This new landscape gives rise to new business models and a wider scope for innovation. At the same time, it facilitates undesirable activities online, including cybercrime. Against this background, world leaders in 2015 underscored the importance of adopting relevant policy responses to harness the potential of ICTs for all seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Creating trust online is a fundamental challenge to ensuring that the opportunities emerging in the information economy can be fully leveraged. The handling of data is a central component in this context. In today's digital world, personal data are the fuel that drives much commercial activity online, raising concerns of privacy and security of information. The present regulatory situation is far from ideal. Some countries lack rules altogether. Some national pieces of legislation are incompatible with each other. UNCTAD provides legal advise and build capacity of policy and law makers. It also serves as a valuable forum for a much-needed global dialogue geared to building consensus in a very important policy field such as data protection.

Data Privacy Is a Fundamental Human Need & Essential for Individual Autonomy
This video is a short excerpt from the Democracy Now! interview with security and privacy researcher Bruce Schneier. Watch it: http://owl.li/KifBK Bruce Schneier talks about about the golden age of surveillance and his new book, "Data and Goliath: The Hidden Battles to Collect Your Data and Control Your World." The book chronicles how governments and corporation have built an unprecedented surveillance state. While the leaks of Edward Snowden have shed light on the National Security Agency's surveillance practices, less attention has been paid to other forms of everyday surveillance — license plate readers, facial recognition software, GPS tracking, cellphone metadata and data mining. AMY GOODMAN: Governments tell us, "If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear." Why should you be concerned about government surveillance, Bruce? BRUCE SCHNEIER: Well, I mean, that’s ridiculous on the face of it. Those same government officials who say that don’t tell you all of their secrets, give you copies of all of their emails and correspondence. Privacy is not about something to hide. Privacy isn’t something that you only have if you’re a criminal. Privacy is about individual autonomy. It’s about presenting yourself to the world. It’s about being in charge of what you say about yourself and what you reveal about yourself. When we’re private, we have control of our person. When we’re exposed, when we’re surveilled, we’re stripped of that control, we’re stripped of that freedom. We don’t feel secure. We don’t feel like we have something to hide. We feel like we’re under the microscope. We feel like prey. Privacy is a fundamental human need, and it’s not about something to hide. I think that’s a very wrong characterization, and we should fight it at every opportunity.

Becoming Anonymous: The Complete Guide To Maximum Security Online (2017/2018)
Video tutorial showing how to become anonymous, hide you internet traffic and identity, and browse the web freely without any fear of privacy invasion or any security concerns from your Government, school, or organization (NSA, CIA, FBI). Going off the grid and becoming fully anonymous (hiding your online identity) is not 100% possible, because of how the internet works, but we can do everything we possibly can to get as close as possible to anonymous. In this video guide, I will show you how to secure all of your devices--such as computers, phones (iPhone vs Android), tablets, and anything else, by securing your passwords, using two factor authentication, securing your web browsers (Mozilla Firefox & Tor), using a VPN (NordVPN or AirVPN), securing social media (Facebook, Snapchat), your communication like texting and email (Signal and Protonmail encrypted messengers), your operating system (Linux), and much much more! I will also cover deleting a majority of your online identity/fingerprint to hide as much information about you as possible, in addition to give you tips on how to prevent social engineering attacks. URGENT: This guide has A LOT of room for improvement, and I have made sure to update it.

Well, at a basic level, your privacy is constantly invaded by the websites you visit, your ISP, your government, your school/employer, and even services you use like Google or Facebook. Everything you do is being tracked and we aren't quite sure what consequences may result out of all of this data being created out of us. Some people also fear certain things like doxing, and other forms of leaks of your personal information. It is also common for corporations to sell your data for a profit, which is a complete violation of your privacy.

Right To Privacy | Supreme Court ruled right to privacy is a fundamental right
Download app to get General Awareness Course: https://www.exambin.com/ A nine-judge bench of the Supreme Court declared privacy to be a fundamental right in a landmark judgment by the end of August this year. The Supreme Court bench headed by Chief Justice JS Khehar had gone for a marathon hearing, during which senior counsels advanced arguments in favour and against the deeming right to privacy a fundamental right. Here we are going to look at what privacy means and how is it protected under Indian laws. What is privacy? A precise legal definition of ‘privacy’ doesn’t exist. Some legal experts define privacy as a human right and international charters, like the Article 12 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, protect persons against “arbitrary interference” with one’s privacy. Privacy can mean a range of things: the right to be left alone, freedom to dissent or protection from state surveillance. Is privacy an Indian citizen’s right? The Supreme Court’s landmark judgment clearly declares privacy a guaranteed fundamental right. It is noteworthy that the Indian Constitution doesn't identify the right to privacy as a fundamental right of citizens. The said right is a corollary of Articles 19 and 21, which deal with the rights to life and liberty. Several cases in the past have upheld it as a fundamental right, while others haven't. How is privacy protected in India? Courts in India have interpreted that the constitution guarantees a limited right to privacy primarily through Article 21, the right to life and liberty. Such court rulings protect citizens’ rights in a range of matters: from freedom of movement to interception of communication. Why does privacy matter? The public debate about right to privacy arose after the government started collecting biometric data of citizens for Aadhaar. The government is pushing for Aadhaar, saying it is necessary to plug leakages in subsidy schemes and to ensure benefits reach the right people. But critics say the move violates privacy, is vulnerable to data breaches and potentially helps government spy on people. Can rulers get access to everything? Many critics arguing that Aadhaar has immense potential for profiling and surveillance. The government can potentially spy on you because every instance of using Aadhaar for authentication or for financial transactions leaves behind logs in the databases of Unique Identification Authority of India, the organisation that oversees implementation of the identity card. Critics have warned that Aadhaar will grant the state an “electronic leash” on citizens and grant the government “sweeping power” to access citizens’ data. How did the case on privacy start? The case came up while the SC was hearing on whether Aadhaar can be made mandatory by the government. One argument by petitioners against mandatory Aadhaar was that it breached the right to privacy and made personal data vulnerable. The Centre argued maintained privacy wasn't a fundamental right. Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi even said citizens do not have an "absolute" right on their bodies. How did petitioners defend the right to privacy? Activist Ancilla says, "India has a population of 1.34bn. If they lose their basic right to privacy, it will be a huge setback for the world." Petitioner Shyam Divan argued invasions of bodily integrity can only be allowed under a totalitarian regime. He added that In the absence of right to privacy in the digital age, any statute can be passed and citizens left helpless. How safe is Aadhar Data? Considering there have been several times when websites, including government portals, have leaked personal details of lakhs of Aadhaar holders due to "programming errors" or other reasons, Aadhaar does pose a risk to privacy if handled carelessly. Cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s personal information was leaked by a government-sanctioned Aadhaar enrolment agency in Ranchi in May. Analysts say the government’s decision to handing over the Aadhaar enrolment process to private agencies for a licence fee was wrong and the set-up to secure private details was weak and prone to data mining and hacking. Private companies enrol new users on behalf of UIDAI and authenticate enrolled users when they access an Aadhaar-enabled service. Now after hearing all the arguments The Supreme has ruled that Privacy is a fundamental right. The verdict on a reference by a five-judge Bench — which is considering the validity of Aadhaar — may play a decisive role on the fate of the scheme.

[172] Bruce Schneier talks data-mining, surveillance & embedded computing systems
On Wednesday, Twitter’s share price soared after the company’s second quarter earnings beat expectations and its outlook on full year revenue proved better than expected.

Next, Erin talks to Bruce Schneier about government and private companies to track us and our personal information. However, our outrage over this invasion of privacy is overshadowed by the convenience of using technology. This tension has led to our ongoing, intense debate over the tradeoffs between security and surveillance. To help sort out all of these issues Schneier weighs in.

If someone tells you something that is unbelievable and they can supply no proof, put it in file 13 (the trash),, If you hear some new information, or someone says "guess what I just heard?", yet it is only gossip, You put that in file 13. If you hear on the news, "it is believed that such and such, such and such did such and such such and such", but they then follow by saying "we have few details", they are creating a narrative, telling you what they want you to conclude, you place that in file 13, and you stop listening to that channel.When people start placing this nonrecyclable junk, powerless information in file 13, that gives them power. now you may ask how is this power?

The govt is still collecting data on people, it’s all still out there – privacy lawyer
The outcry following the documents leaked by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden showing the vast dragnet collecting people’s data has forced the US government to end many of the NSA’s programs, but the government has still continued to collect data and information. Simone del Rosario talks with privacy advocate and whistleblower Jesselyn Radack about the state of digital security in the years following the Snowden leak and whether things have changed in America.

Government Surveillance Through Your Smartphone
Obama offered a robust defense of newly revealed surveillance programs on Friday as more classified secrets spilled into public, complicating a summit meeting with China's new president focused partly on human rights and cybersecurity. Mr. Obama departed from his script at a health care event in California to try to reassure Americans that he had not abused government authority by collecting telephone call logs and foreigners' e-mail messages. But the disclosure hours later of secret contingency planning to target other countries for possible cyberattacks made his get-together with President Xi Jinping later in the day all the more awkward because cyberattacks by the Chinese are high on the American agenda. The latest of three documents published over three days by the British newspaper The Guardian added to the understanding of the Obama administration's approach to national security in an age of multifaceted threats and became another factor in the renewed debate over the balance between privacy and security. The identity of the person who gave those documents to The Guardian and The Washington Post is not known, but The Post has described its source as a career intelligence officer angry at "what he believes to be a gross intrusion on privacy" by the Obama administration. Once a critic of President George W. Bush's hawkish policies, Mr. Obama was ready with an explanation for why he has preserved and extended some of them when a reporter asked him at the health care event if he could assure Americans that the government was not building a database of their personal information. "Nobody is listening to your telephone calls," Mr. Obama said. "That's not what this program's about." But he argued that "modest encroachments on privacy" were "worth us doing" to protect the country, and he said that Congress and the courts had authorized those programs. A National Security Agency telephone surveillance program collects phone numbers and the duration of calls, not the content, he said. An Internet surveillance program targets foreigners living abroad, not Americans, he added. "There are some trade-offs involved," Mr. Obama said. "I came with a healthy skepticism about these programs. My team evaluated them. We scrubbed them thoroughly." In the end, he concluded that "they help us prevent terrorist attacks." But the disclosures united liberal Democrats and libertarian Republicans in accusing him of abandoning values he once espoused. "We believe the large-scale collection of this information by the government has a very significant impact on Americans' privacy, whether senior government officials recognize that fact or not," Senators Ron Wyden of Oregon and Mark Udall of Colorado, both Democrats, wrote in a joint response to the president's remarks. Senator Richard J. Durbin, the Senate's No. 2 Democrat and an Obama ally from Illinois, rebuffed the president's contention that Congress had been kept abreast of the programs, saying only a handful of top leaders are regularly briefed. "To say that there's Congressional approval suggests a level of information and oversight that's just not there," he said in an interview. He added that the sort of data mining revealed in recent days "really pushes the role of government to the limit." Advocates of Congressional intervention said public pressure could revive legislation to at least force more transparency about the programs. "The timing has never been better to revisit our past decisions," said Senator Mike Lee, a Utah Republican. But it was not clear whether there would be a popular backlash to the programs beyond some outrage on Twitter and Facebook, and even critics like Mr. Durbin were skeptical. Many Americans interviewed around the country on Friday shared concerns about their civil liberties but expressed a certain grudging resignation as well. In Congress, the main vehicle for any changes, a reauthorization of the 1978 law that created the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, passed only last December and is not due for renewal for five years. During the debate last winter, the Senate voted on a bipartisan basis to reject amendments to force transparency or curtail surveillance. Moreover, beyond Mr. Durbin, Congressional leaders and senior lawmakers on the intelligence committees expressed few qualms. The House speaker, John A. Boehner, Republican of Ohio, said Mr. Obama must be more forceful in explaining the programs but declined to discuss his own position. Senator Harry Reid of Nevada, the Democratic majority leader, dismissed concerns. "Everyone should just calm down and understand this isn't anything that is brand new," he said. and your smartphone can do a lot more than a chip can do, they could turn on the camera on your phone & see what you're doing if they really wanted to... I've got the Note 2 & I'm always on it, it is what it is...

Data protection, privacy laws non existent in most African states
About a week into the implementation of the EU's General Data Protection Regulations, client of tech titans like Facebook, Google and others, here in Africa, have yet again been reminded of the glaring absence of legal data protection for them. Changes to terms and conditions of service on some of these outlets leave users here, for instance, at the mercy of U.S. law, if they can access it. Since most African states clearly don't care about your data security, what are your options? That's a question I explored earlier with Nanjira Sambuli, from the World Wide Web Foundation.

Tim Cook Tears Into Personal Data-Based Advertising
Tim Cook sought to distance Apple from the data-mining and advertising practices of other Silicon Valley companies. Follow : http://www.twitter.com/ See more at http://www.newsy.com Transcript: Tim Cook delivered a scathing speech at the Electronic Privacy Information Center. Some of his remarks were apparent attempts to set Apple apart from other industry heavyweights, which he never named outright but are believed to be the Facebooks and Googles of Silicon Valley. (Video via Google) He said these companies grow "by lulling their customers into complacency about their personal information" and then monetizing it. "We think that's wrong. And it's not the kind of company that Apple wants to be." Cook cautioned against free online services, saying, "We don't think they're worth having your email, your search history and now even your family photos data mined and sold off for god-knows-what advertising purpose." And he directed some of his comments toward government stances on information security and the chilling effect it could have on constitutional protections. He pointed out even if the U.S. government gets around encryption, criminals will still use it. (Video via the Electronic Frontier Foundation) "Weakening encryption, or taking it away, harms good people that are using it for the right reasons," he said. It was one of Cook's more focused criticisms of today's privacy environment, but it wasn't his first. He spoke on user trust, encryption and security at the White House Summit on Cybersecurity and Consumer Protection earlier this year. (Video via The White House) And to PBS' Charlie Rose on the same issues in 2014. "Our business, Charlie, is based on selling these [iPhones]. Our business is not based on having information about you. You're not our product," Cook said. Now, there is a degree of hypocrisy to Cook's speech, considering Apple enables these companies it's indirectly tearing down through its own app store. But as TechCrunch notes, Apple does at least appear to be coming from more justifiable ground. Unlike Google and Facebook, Apple doesn't make the bulk of its money from advertising.

NSA able to bypass basic Internet privacy safeguards
One of the only ways to communicate securely and privately online was thought to be through encrypted technology. But the government has been able to crack encryption codes online since 2000, according to the latest secret documents leaked by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. The documents go on to say the government made a breakthrough in 2010 when it found a way to monitor large amounts of data sent through fiber optic cables, and data sent through virtual private networks, used to conceal IP addresses.

NSA Whistleblower Speaks Live: "The Government Is Lying To You" Part 1
The interview start on about 13:15, part 2: youtu.be/9c7DJCvqmMM In his first television interview since he resigned from the National Security Agency over its domestic surveillance program, William Binney discusses the NSA's massive power to spy on Americans and why the FBI raided his home after he became a whistleblower. Binney was a key source for investigative journalist James Bamford's recent exposé in Wired Magazine about how the NSA is quietly building the largest spy center in the country in Bluffdale, Utah. The Utah spy center will contain near-bottomless databases to store all forms of communication collected by the agency, including private emails, cell phone calls, Google searches and other personal data. Binney served in the NSA for over 30 years, including a time as technical director of the NSA's World Geopolitical and Military Analysis Reporting Group. Since retiring from the NSA in 2001, he has warned that the NSA's data-mining program has become so vast that it could "create an Orwellian state." Today marks the first time Binney has spoken on national television about NSA surveillance. This interview is part of a 4-part special.

We do not offer promotional or advertising services. Our content is based on our own research, analysis and personal opinion. _______________________________________ What is Grin? Grin is an open source blockchain that uses the Mimblewimble protocol to provide extra privacy. Mimblewimble is a protocol where transactions can be cryptographically verified despite hiding the amount that is being sent. To read more about Mimblewimble, refer to our article on cryptography and privacy. _______________________________________ Token Economics As of March 6, 2019, the circulating supply of Grin is 4,336,260 with a market cap of $14 million. The rate of new Grin coins being released is 60 per block, or 1 every second. This rate is likely to remain constant forever, meaning the inflation percent will decrease every year as the circulating supply grows. After 10 years, the inflation rate will fall below 10% - after 20 years, below 5%. In 25 years, Grin will have a 4% inflation rate, comparable to Bitcoin’s rate 10 years after its creation. Additionally, the Grin team has cited multiple studies to estimate that 2% or more of Grin tokens will be lost from circulation each year. _______________________________________ Strengths - Mimblewimble is a promising privacy protocol that completely shields transaction information from any third parties. It also allows for transactions to be verified while storing minimal data on the blockchain, which means Grin is a highly scalable blockchain. - Grin launched with no ICO, no pre-mine, and no allocation for the founders, which may be viewed positively in the crypto community and discourage speculators. - The open-source project is being developed by a highly competent group of developers. - The token economics of Grin are straightforward and ensure the inflation rate will decrease every year. - Even though Grin is a young project, it has already developed a decent community and exposure among the cryptocurrency space, with multiple solid exchanges (Poloniex and Bittrex) listed the coin. _______________________________________ Weaknesses - It has been seen with Bitcoin that having no true leadership can lead to long disputes over how to update the blockchain, and this could be an issue for Grin going forward. - Since there is no fundraising, Grin developers rely on donations to fund the project. If such donations eventually stop coming in, the Grin developers will have to volunteer their time to work on the project. - Grin has a lot of competition in the market as privacy coins like Zcash and Monero have a first-mover advantage, larger communities, and more widely known privacy protocols. - The future of privacy coins in general is still uncertain.There is also significant uncertainty with respect to government regulation that could make it hard for Grin to thrive. - The diluted market cap for Grin is very large right now. According to Messari, Grin is the 7th most valuable cryptocurrency using coin supply at year 2050, higher than both Monero and ZCash. _______________________________________ Disclaimer The information in this video is for educational purposes only and is not investment advice.

NSA Uses Data Mining to Snoop on Ex Spouses
WMR has learned from a knowlegable National Security Agency (NSA) source that agency employees are using various NSA data mining and surveillance systems, including PRISM meta-data and phone call transcripts, to snoop on their wives and ex-spouses. In addition, some NSA employees have offered to sell such information to individuals outside of NSA who want the goods on their wives and ex-spouses. In one case, NSA surveillance data was used to track down the contact information and location data for an NSA official's daughter. A Maryland court-issued restraining order prevented the NSA official from having any contact with his daughter. The trafficking in NSA surveillance data for personal use and gain is known to NSA officials but they have made no move to curtail the abuses, according to our sources. In fact, wives and ex-spouses who have complained to NSA about problems resulting from the release of their personal data have been met with harassment from NSA's internal security force, known as the "Q Group." In one case, the husband of an ex-wife of an NSA official experienced credit problems after his personal data was obtained by the NSA official who used it to create credit problems for the harassment target. - See more at http://www.intrepidreport.com/archives/9878 [[[DONATE TO ALEX JONES**]]] $5 or $10 A week.

CERIAS - 2015-01-20 - Privacy in Big Data: Thinking Outside the Anonymity/Confidentiality Box
Chris Clifton - Purdue University Abstract The computer science community has had a growing research focus in Privacy over the last decade. Much of this has really focused on confidentiality: Anonymization, computing on encrypted data, access control policy, etc. This talk will look at a variety of research results in this area, including “weaker” approaches than the absolutes typically considered in the security community, and how they all come down to the same basic concept of providing confidentiality. Privacy is much more complex. People are often willing to allow use of their data – but not just for anything. This talk will look at such other privacy issues, such as harm to individuals and society from the fear of disclosure or misuse of private data. The talk will conclude with ideas for new research directions in privacy. About the Speaker Dr. Clifton works on data privacy, particularly with respect to analysis of private data. This includes privacy-preserving data mining, data de-identification and anonymization, and limits on identifying individuals from data mining models. He also works more broadly in data mining, including data mining of text and data mining techniques applied to interoperation of heterogeneous information sources. Fundamental data mining challenges posed by these applications include extracting knowledge from noisy data, identifying knowledge in highly skewed data (few examples of "interesting" behavior), and limits on learning. He also works on database support for widely distributed and autonomously controlled information, particularly issues related to data privacy. Prior to joining Purdue, Dr. Clifton was a principal scientist in the Information Technology Division at the MITRE Corporation. Before joining MITRE in 1995, he was an assistant professor of computer science at Northwestern University. http://www.cerias.purdue.edu
