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

#AprilFoolsDay
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

(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.
#sflcin #data #pdpb
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."
#sflcin #data #pdp
Ms @ramavshree on the #PersonalDataProtectionBill2019 says that the current format of the bill doesn't give comfort and ease to businesses and the users.

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)

THREAD 👇
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. politico.eu/article/eu-con…

Oh, please. READ THE ACTUAL CONTRACTS! e.g. the deals @Google's signing with #NHS Trusts in the UK assign it exclusive #IPR. The power imbalance is bad enough as it is; turning people's lives into property ('ownership' vs rights) will only make things worse...
...and the few details of the @GoogleHealth/@Ascensionorg deal that are now public show the clear intent to do commercial R&D on tens of millions of patients' identifiable data *without consent* - see item 3: cloud.google.com/blog/topics/in…

What exactly would 'ownership' get people...
..that stronger (e.g. #GDPR-like) properly-enforced #DataProtection rights wouldn't? Exactly how much do you think @Google would pay you for your entire medical history, or your genome? Do you think you'd get to negotiate? And once they paid, wouldn't they also 'own' you(r data)?

A key question for #DataProtection watchers in Ireland today is: “How much did @DPCIreland actually get? (And how much did they look for?)”

We have had nearly 5 years of appreciable upping of DPC budget from €1.5M in 2014 to the present €15.2M. 1/n
2/n But the office is still under manned and regularly outgunned even though it is de facto regulator for much of world’s personal data. Also, comparing to the Financial Regulator pre-crash, @DPCIreland is still less than 30% the resource levels that were keeping an eye on banks
3/n However, @DPCIreland has picked a huge fight (rightly) with @IRLDeptPER over #MyGovId. But @IRLDeptPER allocates the budgets to public bodies. So, there is a HUGE risk of the independence of the Office being attacked by pulling in the purse strings.

@Bomu @Bomu: there is no information in the public domain on NIIMS. All we know is what is in the amendment to the Registration of Persons Act.

A general comment: DEASP are making a great deal of noise about their survey on #PSC. It's mad popular they tell us.
So is not paying taxes. We'd all love not to do that. But if you decide not to pay taxes, no matter how popular that is, Revenue have words. Popular != Legal.
Page 5: Cites some of the history of the card. That's nice. However, the debate (as @ciananbrennan has pointed out) the dail record of the debate is worth reading bit.ly/2LY9F8o

And what the history ignores is that #DataProtection law has evolved since 1998.
On page 6, the Dept makes a comment that people have wanted the use of #PSC expanded. Again - perceived popularity != legal basis.

So far what I get is "this might be a good idea with merit that should have been done properly".

We finally have the @DPCIreland report on the #PSC released by @welfare_ie welfare.ie/en/pressoffice…

Tweeting as I read... (1/)
@DPCIreland @welfare_ie The forward has some interesting framing, reminding us that 1) Data Protection isn't just privacy, 2) the #PSC project has been worrying people with concerns for a long time, and 3) it's not just about a card, it's about a "Citizen Registration System" (2/)
@DPCIreland @welfare_ie Page 6 (still in the forward) already mentions the issue of biometric data and the use of facial recognition for "fraud prevention" (I'm not going to put full image descriptions on the screencaps here, but will try to cite pages of the text.) (3/)

If people are wondering why I keep re-tweeting folks talking about how data-as-property is a bad idea, it’s because I’m currently pretty irate about a bill that was introduced in the Oregon legislature as a “privacy” bill. 1/x
First off, commodifying our rights is a bad and inequitable idea on its face. Rights should be rights, period. They should not be for sale, and we shouldn’t be creating systems where people are given financial incentive to relinquish their rights. 2/x
Second, we don’t NEED to make our data property to protect it. We just need stronger privacy laws. We can create frameworks that give people more control over their data, and that create mechanisms for oversight & enforcement of those rights, without turning it into property. 3/x

Dear @rssharma3 This is NOT about #Aadhaar, but your data is being leaked by @PayUmoney I just had to enter your email ID to get your stored card. I don't know how you see this. #Privacy #DataProtection

1. Please Delete your stored card from payumoney.com/customer/dashb…
The issue was reported to PayU months back, but the company seems to not understand the issue of tokenized card information exposing last 4 digits as a privacy issue.

This was what @PayUmoney had to say when @jaivardhan88 of @entrackr asked them about it few months back.

Delivering.
This is our main focus, to make a real difference in people's lives.
All #TeamJunckerEU proposals have been put on the table.

See how #EUdelivers and what it means for you in this living thread ↓
Natural disasters know no borders.
When there is a dangerous forest fire overwhelming one country, our citizens want action.
We thus put forward #rescEU for a stronger collective civil protection response.

See how #EUdelivers and how #EUprotectseuropa.eu/!dU74YM
We promised clean energy for all Europeans.
Our new rules are now finalised.
They will put Europeans at the heart of the energy transition, giving them more choice, reducing energy bills and improving air quality.

The #DNABill has just been passed in the Lok Sabha without even having a #DataProtection law in place. The Bill allows for #DNA Data Banks to be maintain data at the national and regional levels.
DNA can be used under this Bill for Civil and Criminal matters. #DNABill
DNA reveals a lot of sensitive personal information about an individual such as genetic diseases that the individual may be prone to acquire. #DNABill

just been told by the folks at @Experian that because I choose to keep my electoral roll details private, henceforth I will be refused all online credit as experian will score me less than 90%.

They see data privacy essentially a financial risk. #dataprotection

FYI @ICOnews
they say:

"Experian’s Electoral Roll Department have confirmed that you are registered as an 'other elector'. This means that your name is recorded on a register where the address is kept confidential."
" In order for electoral roll information to be recorded on a credit report it does need to be recorded at an address. As your local authority has not confirmed your address as part of the electoral roll registration.....

This all started because the #MetPolice & #LBRUT couldn't do their day jobs properly & decided to take the law into their own hands. It started as a small cover up 12 years ago but has turned into British State Persecution.

#Skynews #BBCNews #DailyMail #Guardian #Euronews
My company was raided. It should have been a straightforward matter. But the #MetPolice & #LBRUT forgot to seize my computer & came back to do a 2nd raid. The search warrant didn't permit a second entry, however, #LBRUT entered unlawfully

#Guardian #Telegraph #DailyMail #GMB #UK
Complaints were then made to my MP #VinceCable. He liaised with the #Metpolice & #LBRUT. And then weeks later, the search warrant was completely changed & was passed off as the search warrant executed on the day of the raids.

Reading through the draft Chinese Civil Code and some observations re #dataprotection:
1/4 Privacy and personal information are treated as two separate rights but covered in the same chapter (Pt3 Ch3: "Right to Privacy and Personal Information")
2/4 Some principles of the EU model are reflected: Lawfulness, Fairness and Necessity; Transparency; Purpose Limitation (art 814), Integrity and Confidentiality (art 817)
3/4 Right to access, copy, rectification, erasure (art 815); right to breach notification (art 817)

Takeaways from @Dell financial call today... Dell is taking share across the board...will do $90-$92B in revenue this fy. Setting up for tough compare for next year. Dell citing favorable spending environment, assumptions are 2X GDP for IT spend...
Dell citing attractiveness of 1-stop shopping (end-to-end - edge->core->cloud) I surmise their cloud is VMware with AWS...Since EMC transaction, Dell is posturing as a much more strategic supplier than either Dell or EMC was as an independent company.
new sales comp plans implemented by Dell - @JClarkeatDell fingerprints seen on the enterprise storage biz which he took over about 1 yr ago. Storage was sucking wind post EMC transaction & is now gaining share. I think IDC numbers coming out soon showing Dell EMC gains
