Do something. Believe me - I know that call, that drive. 12 years ago I turned my life upside down, changed careers to became a 'digital humanitarian', learned new skills, and converged with others on the complex journey to use data and tech for impact. 🧵 on some suggestions.
People before data/technology. (Full stop. Deep breath. Roll shoulders.) How will it help people in this emergency and others? I have gotten multiple notes on various social media platforms and really hope that that passion to do something can convert to action -now &over time.
Ask yourself - What are the skills, tools, and networks that I need to get involved? What do people really need from us? How will I also take care of myself and my people? Honestly, onboarding into digital, data & tech for impact is rocky and full of complexity. Start somewhere.

For vehicle data GDPR is just the beginning and stay tuned for the Data Governance Act, says German Brandenburg regional government in Q&A 1/5

#dataprivacy #dataprotection #connectedvehicles #autonomousvehicles
- Vehicle manufacturers have to observe GDPR when collecting and processing data. The customer's consent to the use of their data (e.g. on-board systems such as car apps) should always obtained when purchasing. 2/5
GDPR is a good foundation for ensuring data protection for data collected, processed and stored by modern vehicles. The legal requirements on "privacy by design" and "privacy by default" are important cornerstones to take into account when developing products. 3/5

Just out: a 3-parts series with @JannesvanRoermu on #Covidpass #Covidcertificate We’ve been digging deeper in its links to #FunctionCreep and E-id. Bonus material: @RecheckHealth received a leak on what happens with our data when tested/jabbed #CovidGesetzNein #CovidGesetzJa (1/)
What distinguishes #FunctionCreep from innovation: it involves a qualitative change in functionality. One of the possible function creeps for #Covidpass #Covidcertificate coincides with the agenda of powerful interest groups. #privacy #dataprotection…
Meanwhile, in Switzerland @BAG_OFSP_UFSP claims #COVIDcertificate is stored only locally in the App on your smartphone: "Neither personal data nor the certificates are stored in a central system”. A leak and further research showed: it's more complicated than that #UVCI (3/)

“Are apps listening to people's conversations to improve ad targeting?” I was contacted by leading Italian newspaper @repubblica to comment on this controversy. Find my response in this thread.
#privacy #dataprotection #spying #smartphones #listening #ads #surveillance #apps 1/n Abstract of a paper we have written on the topicA simplified overview of the threat model
*** QUESTION 1 ***
Is it possible for apps (“commercial” apps, not surveillance apps used by law enforcement) to secretly record conversations of users? 2/n
Yes, this is theoretically possible. Apps regularly obtain from us the permission to use our smartphones’ microphones. And many apps are suspected to misuse this permission for dubious purposes (e.g., to track us via “ultrasonic beacons”). 3/n

The consultation ends on 19 Nov 2021, and you can respond by e-mail to or online here:… Image
A quick sample of initial reactions...

We're clearly going to be hearing a lot about #LegitimateInterests, as well as #commercial and #public ones. The real question being, how do this Government's interests actually align with YOURS?

140+ pages on a Friday is a lot to digest, but @lilianedwards' "penumbra of often futile determinedly populist ideas largely not evidence-based" seems entirely consistent with @DCMS's Drunkard's Walk through #data and #ID this past year...

UK launches data reform to boost innovation, economic growth and protect the public… | @DCMS press release with link to a "wide-ranging consultation on proposed changes to the UK's data landscape"… (currently 404) | #dataprotection
Good to see this. My recommendation: the new UK #dataprotection law should include reduced record-keeping requirements for organisations with fewer than 250 employees, and also more generally encourage the ICO to take account of the specific needs of SMEs. #UKGDPR #datareform "However, the government recognises that the current re
