"Consumers are wary and businesses will suffer tremendous losses if they fail to build consumers’ trust and confidence in the organization’s ability to protect their #privacy ." 
Paul Walsh/Flickr There’s one thing just about every company has in common right now. Without even necessarily meaning to, they have in some way become the proprietor of a new kind of wealth. I’m referring of course to their customers’ data. But the flipside to acquiring that data is your customers now hold you to…

EFF sold the people out with their support of Net Neutrality laws. Then the EFF changed their tune. So which is it EFF?

I'm not entirely sure if this is your perspective, but it seems that you might think that government regulation of any sort is almost always bad. Maybe that is the case. There's lots of instances in which government regulations reduce our freedoms.

But I think that in this case, requiring internet neutrality maintains our freedom on the web. It might restrict internet providers' freedoms, but it will protect ours.

"Sending an email is like sending a postcard..." #privacy  
Sending an email message is like sending a postcard, says scientist Andy Yen in this thought-provoking talk: Anyone can read it. Yet encryption, the technology that protects the privacy of email communication, does exist. It's just that until now it has been difficult to install and a hassle to use. Showing a demo of an email program he designed with colleagues at CERN, Yen argues that encryption can be made simple to the point of becoming the de...

"How #privacy  is balanced against the many rights, values, and desires of our society is among the most challenging issues of our time." - Lisa Ho via +EDUCAUSE  #zeroknowledge  
http://www.educause.edu/blogs/lisaho/privacy-vs-privacy
Lisa Ho, Campus Privacy Officer, University of California, Berkeley. It's common to see privacy pitted against security in the form of the question, "How much privacy are we willing to give up for security?" Some call the security vs. privacy debate a false choice and suggest the debate is ...

Just like process safety is and should be on the board of chemical, pharmaceutical and related companies, so the issues Lisa Ho mentions should be on the governing boards of universities. They are closely related to ethics!
