Surveillance Capitalism thinks it won, but there's still time to unplug it

There is something that you can do

Interesting article - I'm finding more and more that people think that privacy is a good idea but really cannot be bothered to follow best practice. I've actually built an app that is seeking funding which looks to dramatically reduce your data footprint.. the issue is that people like it but wont spend the 5-10 minutes to make a difference. (if your interested, search for getmappd)

We can wait for people to start experiencing identity theft and surveillance more however by that point people will expect it as the norm, similar to cyber / data breaches.

NHS patients must be taught to share their data, says EU lobby group

Re: Trust is earned

And this is where GDPR is supposed to come into play - they current data protection act is out dated and easy to work around.. GDPR introduces up to 4% of gross annual turnover or 250m, which every is highest as a maximum fine instead of the small amount that the ICO can enforce under the DPA at the moment. It will be interesting to see how the NHS and other larger organisations prepare and change for GDPR in 2018 ( the U.K. Will still onboard this regardless of leaking the EU to continue trading) especially as the primary focus is around consent with an explicit opt in only, data sharing in general and targeting of individuals
