Really good post today in ICTWorks. Here’s a excerpt that makes the stakes around data protection quite plain - though we can likely come up with a hundred, less dire, negative scenarios.
“Breaches could expose refugees or asylum seekers that are fleeing from persecution to serious human rights violations, torture, and inhumane treatment and ultimately, the deprivation of life. Instead of creating good impact, data becomes a negative externality that could potentially kill someone. Literally.”
My question for this group: What can we do to encourage best practices in data protection? What do we need to make it happen?
