Kelsey’s Naughty List! 🎄😳 In the spirit of Christmas, I've made a Naughty List of bad behaviour in the world of digital rights and privacy! In no particular order, here are some of 2018's biggest blunders for data protection, consumer privacy, and cyberlaw more generally.
NAUGHTY! The US Congress voted down an effort to reform the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) Section 702 (remember Edward @Snowden?) and instead passed a bill that expanded warrantless surveillance of US citizens and foreigners. 🕵️‍♂️🌍

NAUGHTY (AGAIN)! The US Congress passed the Clarifying Lawful Overseas Use of Data (CLOUD) Act, which expands US and foreign law enforcement to target and access people’s data across international borders. Critics of the act include @ACLU and @EFF ⛈️

NAUGHTY! AggregateIQ, a data firm hired by VoteLeave to target online ads at voters during the #Brexit referendum, was accused by the @ICOnews of processing people's data "for purposes which they would not have expected" in contravention of the #GDPR 🗳️

NAUGHTY! Cambridge Analytica, the data brokerage and political consulting firm that worked with Trump and the Brexit campaign, harvested millions of Facebook profiles. It is the subject of ongoing criminal investigations in both the USA and the UK.

NAUGHTY! @Marriott, the international hotel giant, admitted that an “unauthorized party had copied and encrypted information” belonging to about 500 million customers on its reservations system. The intrusion went unnoticed for four years. 🛎️🧳

NAUGHTY! Google-owned @Firebase exposed more than 100 million records of user data weighing more than 113 GBs. Data leaked via Android and iOs apps on misconfigured backends included 4 million protected health records and 50,000 financial records 🏥📱💸

NAUGHTY! Texas Secretary of State @TXsecofstate somehow left a single file containing nearly 15 million records - including voter names, addresses, genders and voting history - on an unsecured server without a password 🗳️🤠

NAUGHTY! @helsesorost, Norway’s largest healthcare authority, suffered an attack on patient and military records. Hackers were looking for information related to Trident Juncture 18, a major @NATO exercise taking place in Norway 🎖️🇳🇴🧭

NAUGHTY! Clueless members of Congress questioned Facebook's Zuckerberg, putting their embarrassing lack of knowledge on full display. The chance to challenge Zuck on privacy issues in the wake of Cambridge Analytica became a silly ranting session 😐🏛️
