Police, Body Cameras, Privacy, and Policy

In the recent past a local police officer was involved in a shooting resulting in a citizen’s death. Soon after, the cry of “if only there was a body camera we would know what happened” was heard. I agree. However any police department needs to put policies in place to protect citizens’ privacy when cameras are used. Similarly, businesses using monitoring technologies need to put policies in place as well.

A Privacy Pro and Wearable Technology

Privacy professionals, including myself, have been warning of the dangers to privacy from wearable technology. The concerns I have been expressing have been based on reported product capabilities, anecdotal evidence, and published reports. So when I had the opportunity to join the Google Glass Explorer program, I jumped at the chance.

Wearable technology is coming, but will anyone notice?

When I look through corporate handbooks I often find prohibitions on the use of cameras or recording devices while on a company’s premises. It’s not something that gets brought up in new hire orientation nor something that gets brought up very often at all. Let’s face it, there is a certain amount of convenience to taking out your smartphone and snapping a picture of the notes on the whiteboard or recording a meeting to create the minutes later.

While you can get technology that can perform these functions surreptitiously, main stream commercial technology would require you to be fairly overt when taking a picture or making a recording. Since people will know you are capturing something they can object (or report you to corporate security if they want to be nasty). Wearable technology will change this. Continue reading this post…

In praise of a privacy compliance program

Opening my newsfeed this morning I was not surprised to find an article about another data breach. Over the coming days I am sure we will discover that the organization's policies were well defined, that training and awareness had taken place, and it was just that the procedures weren't followed by one individual. The skeptic in me would say that if one person isn't following procedures, there are probably others. To prevent situations like these, an organization must establish a privacy compliance regimen.

Political Campaigns Need Privacy Policies and Training
When I made the transition from working in American Politics to learning about Privacy, the first tidbit of information I was given was that there was a difference in terminology between the American  and the European practice. In America, we use the term Privacy but in Europe they use the term Data Protection. As I continued my journey in “Privacy” and I considered how my new-found training would have impacted my career in politics, I have come to feel that the term data protection is more applicable to the needs of political campaigns. If I were to review the numerous political campaigns that I have managed, marketed, and organized, data protection has always been woefully inadequate throughout them all.
