Invading privacy: Cyber crimes on the rise

Social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn might not be the real source of cyber crime, but criminals can use them effectively (phishing attacks). For example, they may use these techniques to collect information on a target (also known as ‘spear phishing’), research members of staff, or install malware on the target’s computer, very easily. Credit cards have always been one of the biggest targets for cyber criminals; the most common form of credit card frauds involves skimming. With the rapid increase in the use of plastic money, India is witnessing a tide of skimming frauds.

In this direction the European Union has taken certain initiative in the form of European Convention on Cyber Crimes, 2001 supported by many other international organizations such as the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), the Copy Right Treaty, 1996, to which many countries like United States of America, European Union and Canada are signatory.

In this direction the following suggestions can be made.

Preparedness of Saudi Arabia to Defend Against Cyber Crimes: An Assessment with Reference to Anti-Cyber Crime Law and GCI Index

With the increasing popularity of ICT, cyber-crimes have increased rapidly. Countries across the globe have made the necessary interventions to ensure cyber-security. Saudi Arabia has been the worst victim of cyber-crimes in the Gulf region. This article investigates the preparedness of Saudi Arabia to defend itself against cyber-crimes. In order to combat against cyber-crimes, Saudi Arabia formed the anti-cybercrimes law in 2007. Global Cyber-security Index of 2017 has placed Saudi Arabia in the maturing stage behind the leading nations. Anti-cybercrimes law covers essential areas to fight against cyber-crimes and states their punishments. However, it is found to be deficient to protect against identity theft, invasion of privacy, cyber-bullying etc. This research finds Saudi Arabia semi-prepared to defend itself against cyber-crimes. In order to be among the leading nations of cyber-security; Saudi Arabia needs to strengthen its anti- cybercrimes law, cyber-security regulations and national cyber-security authority. It needs to develop cyber-security strategy, standards, metrics and R&D programs. It should promote home-grown cyber-security industry, incentivize cyber-security companies and enter into multi-lateral agreements.

worldwide computer network, through an improper breach of security mechanism". The penalty imposed for this criminal type is detention, from 3 (three) months to 1 (one) year, and fine; and for the cases provided for in the caput of Article 154a and in paragraph 1, penalties shall be increased from one sixth to one third "if the invasion results in economic loss". That is what establishes Law 12.737 / 2012, art. 154-A 2 . It should be noted that this increase is applicable only to the figures described in the caput and the respective paragraph 1 of article 154a, prohibiting their applicability in qualified cases. In analyzing this article, it is verified that the legislator chose the sentence of detention, carried out in semi-open regime, for the execution of sentence of deprivation of freedom for those who commit computer crimes. A fact that prevents this regime from complying with the sentence is applied to all, since this decision falls to the magistrate, as affirmed by Nucci (2005). That being so, it is clear that the penalty provided by the legislature is inadequate and ineffective, and in consideration of the principle of proportionality in the strict sense, which is aggregated with the function of general penalty prevention. For the insignificant amount of sentence imposed by the legislator will hardly intimidate internet offenders.

Blogging: self presentation and privacy

Blogging: self presentation and privacy

Additionally, the collation of all of my posts could easily paint a picture of me as a person. If this picture was then used in a different context, it could pose a serious privacy risk. For example, let’s say that my teenage years were emotionally difficult for me and that I frequently blogged about my low moods when I was experiencing mild depression and generally was not happy with myself. Now, however, I am a well-adjusted and happy family lawyer who is up for partnership. What would happen if my appointment committee dredged up my blog posts from ten years ago and made the decision that my emotional well-being is questionable at best because I was quite emotionally unstable ten years ago. There is an increased chance, they argue, that I will become so again and hence am not a ‘desirable’ candidate. The fact that I disclosed this information could now have potentially serious effects on my career and life plans. Arguably, blog sites serve as the context for the entries they contain. There is no guarantee, however, that individual entries will not be extracted from their original context and exposed in radically different forums in the future. Grudin 43 refers to this ‘loss of control’ as the steady erosion of clearly situated action. ‘We are losing control and knowledge of the consequences of our actions, because if what we do is represented digitally, it can appear anywhere, and at any time in the future. We no longer control access to anything we disclose.’ 44 Future employers, insurance companies, police investigators or even a future spouse could locate decontextualised, and possibly damaging, statements. Rosen highlights the contextual basis of privacy violations when stating that disclosure of personal information is a highly circumstance-sensitive matter. 45 When taken out of context, the same information can be severely misjudged by others.

MARKETING INTELLIGENCE REPORT: IP Targets Customers without Invading Privacy

MARKETING INTELLIGENCE REPORT: IP Targets Customers without Invading Privacy

In early February, House Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) introduced the ―Do Not Track‖ Internet privacy bill and Rep. Bobby L. Rush (D-IL) reintroduced a similar bill from an earlier congressional session. In essence, under Speier‘s Do Not Track bill the FTC would have 18 months to formulate regulations that would require advertisers to provide web users with an effective and easy way to ―opt out‖ from having their online behavior tracked or recorded. Although no specifics of how the opting out process is to be implemented have yet been defined, many in the digital advertising industry fear the regulation‘s potential for serious negative impact, which, depending on a particular company‘s business model, could go well beyond the loss of revenue to shutting down their business entirely.

Face-swiping: threat or opportunity? A discourse analysis on the Chinese government’s message to the people concerning facial recognition technology

Face-swiping: threat or opportunity? A discourse analysis on the Chinese government’s message to the people concerning facial recognition technology

This first part of the chapter has looked into some definitions, some similarities but also some differences between the concepts ‘privacy’ and ‘security’. Both valued highly by many, individual privacy and protection from harm are important rights that people have. However, at times, they can also clash with one another. In the example of the Dutch Wiv, the clash was a result of the government wanting to give itself the power to infringe its citizens’ privacy rights without them being an immediate threat to national security. The Dutch government in this case chose to enhance security at the cost of privacy of its citizens. As for China, there is a popular idea that, as the Chinese language does not contain a one-on-one translation of the English ‘privacy’, the Chinese do not have a notion of privacy at all. Chinese scholars like He (1996) and Lü (2012) are critical of this view, stating that the Chinese sense of privacy is just different, not non-existing. As traditionally, the Chinese attach more value to the community, they both discern private domain privacy and public domain privacy. The latter receives more and more attention in China due to the rise of information technology. The effect that this technology has on the balance between privacy and security, but also on the definition of the two, is significant. The information that people, before the emergence of internet, used to have for themselves, they know often share with their mobile phones, computers, etc. This new type of information sharing requires protection, as some of this information could be very private. The next chapter will discuss in more depth the relation between privacy and technological innovations, of which the emergence of artificial intelligence is the major point of interest.
