Some bit of tough love on IP protection in Kenya. I have heard of companies requiring their IT depts or hired devs to develop unhackable apps. To say this is ludicrous is an understatement because tech nerdistry alone can't protect your company's IP #CyberSecurity
IMO, IP protection should be hinged on the following key pillars
~ sound legal advice/support
~ BYOD policy
~ data privacy/protection policy
~ skilled IT staff
~ sober C-suite

Companies ought to start by seeking proper legal advice. I understand there are lawyers that......
focus solely on intellectual property. A BYOD policy is equally important because companies tend to focus on outsiders misappropriating their IP when studies have shown employees pose an even greater threat. Corporate espionage ring a bell?

Time to pay close attention to #China & #India's comprehensive #DataProtection bills. Why? Because they are coming probably by the end of 2021, they are giving 'data subject' rights to app 2.7 billion people & they legislate DP where the US is absent: 1/…
In this panel that opened the #GPS2021 online sessions for @PrivacyPros, I explore with Barbara Li and Malavika Raghavan @teninthemorning some of the context & background leading to these two legislative developments in China and India, as well as the burning topics of ... 2/ localization, international data transfers, private rights of action and enforcement. There was so much more to talk about - we promise to be back with a follow-up and a deeper dive into individual data subject rights and other practical topics. Why the time pressure? 3/

Modern #data platforms are emerging as the answer to the holy grail: creating a truly data-driven organization. With this, “how” we use data has changed.

Many vendors today brand themselves as the be-all and end-all... but this isn’t true. 🙅
It’s impossible to work today with a single modern data platform from one vendor! A modern #data platform is a collection of tools and processes. 🧰

In this thread, I’ll break down what a modern data platform means in practice today. 2/n
Today, data platforms have basic building blocks that look something like this. 👇 3/n…

#Datacracy | Being #GDPR compliant doesn't necessarily make companies ready for India's upcoming data protection laws…


By @pabsgill Image
@pabsgill India is ready to take a stab at formulating its first laws to govern data & it is using the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulations (#GDPR) as the template. For companies operating in India, this could end up being a stick in the mud.

#Datacracy #dataprotection
@pabsgill While #GDPR and India’s Personal Data Protection Bill (#PDP) are similar in many ways, the differences between them mean that a company which is compliant in Europe may not necessarily be compliant under the PDP.

#Datacracy | India’s new #DataProtectionBill makes a good show of user rights — but can it deliver on its promises?…


By @pabsgill
@internetfreedom @pabsgill India’s Personal #DataProtectionBill, 2019 is likely to be placed in front of Parliament sometime this month. The underlying goal of the proposed laws is to assign rights to users over the collecting, storage and usage of their information.

#Datacracy @internetfreedom
@internetfreedom @pabsgill When it comes to #dataprivacy it looks like users have every option available to them except for the one they want — control over their data. This includes knowing who’s collecting data, where it’s being stored, how it’s being used and what can be done if it's misused instead.

On facebook's data privacy. I have never installed facebook or instagram on my android test phone yet zuckerberg and co won't leave me alone. How do i know, because i proxied web traffic through a mitm tool and caught fb sending data about my phone to its data centers. Here's how
Facebook leverages its sdk installed across diverse apps to create and maintain profiles of consumers even if they don't use any of its apps. In my case, the culprit is an English Premier League app. Data sent to facebook datacenters includes phone orientation in 3d space - x,y,z
Battery stats, rooted/non-rooted, GDPR applicability - no in my case, my location, app with fb sdk, time, phone model, consent status - of course this rides on consent granted to app with fb sdk. Sneaky imho, among other data points. Where is all this data sent to,

15 Jan 2021, If you are using @WhatsApp Web, your Mobile Number and Messages are being index by @Google again. Don't know why WhatsApp is still not monitoring their website and google. This is 3rd time.

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

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.

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.

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
