I have written two articles for this year’s Data Privacy Day (#DPD15) endeavors . One will be published in the February issue of Information Age (www.information-age.com) and is online now (see link below) & the other is on the IBM Big Data Hub (www.ibmbigdatahub.com) going live on January 28th as a feature on DPD. I encourage all of you to visit these sites;
Information Age: “Personal Privacy, Internet Commerce and National Security: Can they co-exist?” (http://bit.ly/1JsRU6P)
IBM Big Data Hub: “Some Thoughts for Privacy Day 2015” (http://ibm.co/1z6RvUY)
2015 is going to be a critical year in determining the future of Personal Privacy in all respects e.g. Protecting Students Privacy, Reigning in Data Brokers, Thwarting Cyber Attacks, Curtailing Government Surveillance and Snooping, a Refresh of the EU Data Protection Act, President Obama’s “Privacy Bill of Rights”, etc. I believe that it is essential that everyone take an agressive role in managing and protecting their Privacy, along with that of their family members.
Remember that Privacy is a basic Human Right in many parts of the world and a Civil Liberty in the US. It can only be maintained, much less reinforced if you take an active role in not only protecting your own, but those around you, especially your children.
