[EnGadget] Congress oversight body recommends GDPR-style privacy laws

Quote:
GAO's report heavily cited Facebook's Cambridge Analytica scandal as a prime example of why a federal-level internet privacy law is necessary. It also named a handful of other privacy concerns that became a lot more prominent over the past few years based on the agency's research. One of those is the rise in popularity of Internet of Things devices, thereby increasing the opportunities for security and privacy breaches. Another cause for concern is that automakers don't always clarify their data-sharing practices, which could become a huge issue for the increasing number of connected cars.

GAO also pointed out that there are no overarching laws in place to govern companies' collection and sale of personal information. Finally, it mentioned one of its old reports, which determined that people generally have no idea how their location data is shared and used by third parties.

Make ya a deal, how about we get rid of the DCMA first?

I calculated the odds of this succeeding versus the odds I was doing something incredibly stupid... and I went ahead anyway.

If it's not coming out for the PC, it's dead to me.

And what has GDPR changed? Other than having to click a bunch of emails? Oh yes, some websites started to IP lock themselves and throw you a GDPR as a reason and that they do not want to implement anything necessary for it, so to try avoid any potential issue they use IP lock which in itself is laughable because IP doesn't define physical location but hey website admins and lawyers will maybe learn that in 3rd millennium.

GDPR style changes in US... one would have to read carefully the whole laws to even begin to understand all that fine print. Same as it is with GDPR in EU.

Overall more "oversight" of the data hoarding corporations and control given to users over their data is definitely necessary.

Do you even know what GDPR actually is?

How about no. We should deal with the important stuff before we worry about the piddly stuff.





I haven't paid any attention to the GDPR stuff, is it any good? I'm sure whatever they implement here in the US will be a great benefit to the companies collecting and selling the data and be another nail in the coffin for an individuals right to privacy.

Some pretty good stuff, here's a short summary.
Quote:
Controllers of personal data must put in place appropriate technical and organisational measures to implement the data protection principles. Business processes that handle personal data must be designed and built with consideration of the principles and provide safeguards to protect data (for example, using pseudonymization or full anonymization where appropriate), and use the highest-possible privacy settings by default, so that the data is not available publicly without explicit, informed consent, and cannot be used to identify a subject without additional information stored separately. No personal data may be processed unless it is done under a lawful basis specified by the regulation, or unless the data controller or processor has received an unambiguous and individualized affirmation of consent from the data subject. The data subject has the right to revoke this consent at any time.

A processor of personal data must clearly disclose any data collection, declare the lawful basis and purpose for data processing, and state how long data is being retained and if it is being shared with any third parties or outside of the EEA. Data subjects have the right to request a portable copy of the data collected by a processor in a common format, and the right to have their data erased under certain circumstances.
Actually having regulations for storing data is probably the most important thing, almost every major "hacking" event was because of gross incompetence like storing emails, passwords etc in plaintext in the same database.

Us Users do bear some, if not, most of responsibility. A person consent is mandatory to joining a social network or service. It only took EU about a month after the Cambridge University fiasco to implement the regulation while the US . . . well, you see how the Users are viewed in this part of the world.

I'll try again.


While this is badly needed it will not be allowed to happen until after the 2020 election, if ever.
