1. The ghouls behind the Berwick Border protest bring you the #longwalktofreedom a two month walk to every town in Scotland asking yessers to #signTheCovenant and trust them with their most valuable personal ID. How is it going so far? ImageImageImageImage
The #500miles and #1320miles #LWTF teams include:
Dave Llewelyn
Cliff Serbie
Lorna Taylor
Jane Cooper Stewart (Sheldon the dog)
Wendy Macdonald
Karl Claridge
Wren Chapman aka Ever Uan Beag ImageImageImageImage
3. On a previous #500miles walk they stickered their way from Scotland to England not even sparing Trafalgar Square from their vandalism, so stickering the Scottish Highlands comes as no surprise. Filth. Image

🚀 #DEPA – India's new #datagovernance framework – isn't just on paper anymore.

It's being rapidly implemented across the financial, health, and telecom sectors.

🧵 A thread, in pics…

#fintech #dataprotection #DigitalIndia #healthtech
Context: India is generating #data and digital footprints at unprecedented rates, even among the low income segment. @UPI_NPCI is @ 1.6 Billion payment transactions per month!
Yet we still lack control over our own personal data. It's 2020, and handing over your username and password is still a norm for sharing financial docs! Along with physical signatures/notarisation, screen scraping, you name it. Frictions galore.

I'll summarize our study on app vendors' responses to Subject Access Requests ("What data do you have on record about me?"), which was presented at #ares2020 – and received the Best Paper Award 🥳. @ARES_Conference #sar #apps #privacy #gdpr #dataprotection 1/18
Link to paper (open access):…. This was a 4-year longitudinal study (2015–2019) and joint work of Jacob Kroeger (@JWI_Berlin), Jens Lindemann (@unihh) and myself (@uni_bamberg_of). 👀 Watch our 15-min talk on vimeo ( 2/18
Background: EU citizens can ask companies about what personal data they process according to Art. 15 GDPR. We performed an undercover study with 225 vendors of popular iOS and Android apps to figure out how vendors process such SARs. 3/18

Some gems from the @cnnumerique: “@dgtresor is also in favour of proactive, proportionate and targeted regulation on structuring platforms, such as the obligation to develop technical standards facilitating #interoperability of services and possibilities for user migration."
Structuring is "based on quant. criteria such as no. of users, % of market, or $$ of the platform, but also more qual. such as access or possession of quality data, or the control exercised by the platform with regard to its users (captivity) or 3rd-party companies (addiction)."
German draft law: "'of major importance for comp. b/w markets”, … its dominant position…, €€, its vertical integration or diversification into ancillary markets, its access to data critical to competition, or the decisive nature of its services for … other market players."

Hi, @ICOnews! Your advice to pubs, etc. on #collecting customers' details is (at this point in time) incorrect, where it says they are "#required" 👇…

Until the appropriate Minister issues #Regulations, e.g. under section 45C of #PHA1984, the Government... Image
...has "#required" nothing; it is simply making a #request.

In other words, #collecting such details is entirely #voluntary on the part of the pub/bar/whatever - and #providing their details is entirely voluntary on the part of the customer.

Later in your advice, you use...
...the phrase "#encouraged to collect", which is (until #Regulations are laid for each nation) more accurate.

However, in listing people's #DataProtection #Rights, you omit to mention the most relevant one, i.e. their #RightToObject to #processing!

That you suggest pubs, etc...

Margaret's blog refers to @NHSDigital's #DataProtectionNotice for the #COVID19 #GPES extract, but somehow omits to mention that people's #Type1 objections (#OptOuts) WILL be upheld: Image
And also that, according to…, actually *enhanced* #InformationGovernance processes - involving both @TheBMA & @rcgp - will be in place for data #access, which "may" include respecting #NDOP on a "case by case basis": ImageImage
Meanwhile, @NHSEngland/@NHSX in their notice to health & care professionals (while notably failing to mention #Type1s...) confirms patients STILL have the right to #OptOut of having a #SummaryCareRecord, and that existing #SCR #OptOuts will be respected:… Image

Though it doesn't seem to have updated the #OGL version on since 2015.

"Data-access requests that most Chinese mobile applications make outnumber their non-Chinese alternatives."

My Extensive analysis of Mobile applications+devices of Chinese firms & the possibilities of Data harvesting.…

#dataprotection #TikTok #Mitron
Ever wondered how many permissions you grant when you install a Chinese app on your mobile handsets?

When data is regarded as the vital fuel for the digital economy, data-access requests that most Chinese mobile applications make outnumber their non-Chinese alternatives.
Either available on the Google Play Store or Apple's App Store, these applications usually list permissions they require for installation.

A comparative analysis of Play Store information reveals startling facts about the volume of data Chinese applications seek from their users

Since 2016 the French security services, the SGDSN, raised significant concerns over the growing dominance of CCP connected vehicles systems, especially those that will be paired to #5G networks with Chinese hardware. Now their fears are coming to pass:…
Background: Since 2014 #Huawei has been engaging several European car manufactures to explore rolling out Huawei GPS technology for both autonomous vehicles, connected vehicles and GPS assisted navigation.
In 2016 French car manufacturer Groupe PSA signed a deal with Huawei called "Push to Pass" strategy for 2016 - 2021. #Huawei technology would allow car manufacturers will be able to track, in real-time, the location of a vehicle, and retain the data. A major #DataProtection issue

1/9) Since everyone keeps asking me, here’s my TLDR on why blockchain-enabled immunity passports, certificates, or credentials for #COVID19 (ala the CCI are such a bad idea from a legal POV (leaving aside the technical & public health concerns for now).
2/9) Immunity passports, certificates, or credentials of any kind have the potential to interfere with fundamental rights of privacy & data protection; freedoms of association, assembly, & movement; the right to work & education; and otherwise limit our freedom & autonomy.
3/9) A measure that would interfere with our fundamental rights must be prescribed by law, necessary, and proportionate to achieve legitimate aims (

you should be taking right now to protect yourself, your accounts and your privacy against #phishing attacks.

We’re all living with extra precautions due to the reality of #COVID19 but, unfortunately, that’s not the only threat we’re dealing with.

Cybercrimes are occurring more frequently in the past few weeks, so we’re sharing a list of precautions you all should follow.

If these feel pretty obvious to you — AWESOME! 🤩 But it might be a good time to remind your family and friends to be careful.

On this #AprilFoolsDay, recounting some instances from #Parliament which had us fooled in the last one year:

1. Delaying discussing #FinanceBill for almost a week and then passing it without discussion in #LokSabha, because #Parliament had to be shut due to #COVID outbreak
2. On last day of curtailed #BdgetSession in #RajyaSabha, 7 Money Bills were returned in 5 hours, with 2 Appropriation Bills and all 154 clauses and 5 schedules of Finance Bill put to vote together without any discussion and cleared in 5 minutes

3. Sending #DataProtection Bill to specially constituted Joint Parliament Committee headed by a BJP MP instead of already existing Standing Committee headed by an Opposition MP

Por favor BASTA! Es momento de frenar a tiempo el falso debate sobre la diada #privacidad Vs. #salud. No funciona así. Apelo a la responsabilidad de todos los especialistas de no instalar estas disyuntivas,que no sólo son innecesarias sino que traen confusión (cont.) #Covid_19

(1/n) A list of about 150 residents of Nagpur city was openly shared on several WhatsApp groups last night. It contained tabular data that consisted of names, addresses, phone numbers of home quarantined individuals, organized by zones and police station. #covid19india
(2/n)This list did not mention a header or footer or any source or owner responsible for this sensitive data. It did not mention whether consent was sought from home quarantined individuals for sharing their private information openly over digital or offline media. #covid19india
(3/n) This immediately triggered vigilantism on groups where the list was shared. A lot of those listed on the set of home quarantined individuals started receiving calls. #covid19india

Justice B.N. #Srikrishna believes that the #law has to declare an #objective. Whatever procedure is declared are non-arbitrary. It leads us to a state where you or the state can look at everything we do and have access to everything we have.

Justice B.N. #Srikrishna on whether the Government has neglected the work of the #SrikrishnaCommittee, "It is too complicated to answer; the right thing was to get a special committee to debate on the Bill, and thankfully the #JPC was made."

A few thoughts on the leaked EU Commission's White Paper on a European Approach towards #AI
(thanks to @F_Kaltheuner for pointing it my way)

The white paper references the Commission's ongoing activities on #AI. But the main thrust is the analysis of different regulatory options to make good on @vonderleyen pledge to present legislation on #AI within the first 100 days in office.
The big story in the media such as this @POLITICOEurope piece (where you can find a link to the leaked draft) has been the consideration of a temporary ban of facial recognition in public spaces.…
