This book is about enforcing privacy and data protection. It demonstrates different approaches – regulatory, legal and technological – to enforcing privacy. If regulators do not enforce laws or regulations or codes or do not have the resources, political support or wherewithal to enforce them, they effectively eviscerate and make meaningless such laws or regulations or codes, no matter how laudable or well-intentioned. In some cases, however, the mere existence of such laws or regulations, combined with a credible threat to invoke them, is sufficient for regulatory purposes. But the threat has to be credible. As some of the authors in this book make clear – it is a theme that runs throughout this book – “carrots” and “soft law” need to be backed up by “sticks” and “hard law”. The authors of this book view privacy enforcement as an activity that goes beyond regulatory enforcement, however. In some sense, enforcing privacy is a task that befalls to all of us. Privacy advocates and members of the public can play an important role in combatting the continuing intrusions upon privacy by governments, intelligence agencies and big companies. Contributors to this book - including regulators, privacy advocates, academics, SMEs, a Member of the European Parliament, lawyers and a technology researcher – share their views in the one and only book on Enforcing Privacy.

While it is a truism that emerging technologies present both opportunities for and challenges to their host communities, the legal community has only recently begun to consider their significance. On the one hand, emerging information, bio, nano, and neurotechnologies challenge policy-makers who aspire to put in place a regulatory environment that is legitimate, effective, and sustainable; on the other hand, these same technologies offer new opportunities as potentially powerful regulatory instruments. In this unique volume, a team of leading international scholars address many of the key difficulties surrounding the regulation of emerging technological targets as well as the implications of adopting technology as a regulatory tool. How should we rise to the challenge of regulating technologies? How are the regulatory lines to be drawn in the right places and how is the public to be properly engaged? How is precaution to be accommodated, and how can the law keep pace with technologies that develop ahead of the regulatory environment? How readily should we avail ourselves of the opportunity to use technology as a regulative strategy? How are we to understand these strategies and the challenges which they raise? To what extent do they give rise to similar policy problems accompanying more 'traditional' regulatory instruments or generate distinctive challenges? While the criminal justice system increasingly relies on technological assistance and the development of a 'surveillance society', is a regulatory regime that rules by technology compatible with rule of law values?

Proven and emerging strategies for addressing document and records management risk within the framework of information governance principles and best practices Information Governance (IG) is a rapidly emerging "super discipline" and is now being applied to electronic document and records management, email, social media, cloud computing, mobile computing, and, in fact, the management and output of information organization-wide. IG leverages information technologies to enforce policies, procedures and controls to manage information risk in compliance with legal and litigation demands, external regulatory requirements, and internal governance objectives. Information Governance: Concepts, Strategies, and Best Practices reveals how, and why, to utilize IG and leverage information technologies to control, monitor, and enforce information access and security policies. Written by one of the most recognized and published experts on information governance, including specialization in e-document security and electronic records management Provides big picture guidance on the imperative for information governance and best practice guidance on electronic document and records management Crucial advice and insights for compliance and risk managers, operations managers, corporate counsel, corporate records managers, legal administrators, information technology managers, archivists, knowledge managers, and information governance professionals IG sets the policies that control and manage the use of organizational information, including social media, mobile computing, cloud computing, email, instant messaging, and the use of e-documents and records. This extends to e-discovery planning and preparation. Information Governance: Concepts, Strategies, and Best Practices provides step-by-step guidance for developing information governance strategies and practices to manage risk in the use of electronic business documents and records.

Security for the Digital World Within an Ethical Framework

People now view digital services and applications as an essential part of their lives and as carriers of great benefits. Nevertheless, because they provide a new space for criminals, terrorists and others with malicious intent, digital technologies also present significant threats. How can we maintain the freedom and benefits offered by the digital ecosystem while also building into that system safeguards against attacks? The Digital Enlightenment Forum (DigEnlight) takes the view that the new regulatory and legal safeguards required for our digital world must be developed within a framework that incorporates what they call 'digital ethics'. This White Book attempts to draw together the various strands which have emerged from the intense debate within DigEnlight over the last three years. It focuses on how we can negotiate the changing emergent behavior and ethical issues that arise at the heart of debates about the digital world, covering areas such as national security, internet governance, and approaches to privacy and trust, as well as making recommendations to help realize a global social compact for digital security and privacy based on ethical principles. The book represents a meaningful contribution to the ongoing efforts to deal with these important issues, and will be of interest to all those with concerns about the future of our digital world.

Du wirst unnötig werden. Du glaubst, du bist besonders, einzigartig und dass was auch immer es ist, das du tust, unmöglich ersetzt werden kann. Du liegst falsch. Während wir sprechen, laufen Millionen von Algorithmen, die von Computerwissenschaftlern erschaffen wurden, verzweifelt auf Servern überall auf der Welt nur mit einem Ziel: zu tun, was auch immer Menschen tun können, aber besser. Das ist das Argument für ein Phänomen namens technologische Arbeitslosigkeit, eines, das die moderne Gesellschaft durchdringt. Doch ist dies wirklich der Fall? Oder ist es lediglich eine futuristische Fantasie? Was wird in den nächsten Jahren aus uns werden und was können wir tun, um einen katastrophalen Kollaps der Gesellschaft zu verhindern? "Roboter stehlen deinen Job, aber das ist OK: Wie man den Wirtschaftskollaps glücklich überlebt" erforscht den Einfluss technologischen Fortschritts auf unser Leben, was es bedeutet, glücklich zu sein und gibt Vorschläge, um den System-Kollaps zu vermeiden. „Wahrhaft exzellent.

die Tugend des Vergessens in digitalen Zeiten

GOOGLE VERGISST NIE! Weshalb es lebenswichtig ist zu vergessen Das digitale Zeitalter ist eines der perfekten Erinnerung: niemals zuvor haben wir so viele Informationen sammeln können wie heute. Immer größer und billiger werdende Speichermedien, neue Methoden zur Erschließung von Informationen und der Zugriff auf Daten aus aller Welt über das Netz machen dies möglich. Welche Folgen hat diese Entwicklung? Wird nur noch das als wahr gelten, was die Form digitaler Daten annimmt? Oder werden wir für das, was dauert, für Verträge und sprachliche Kunstwerke, beim Papier bleiben? Ist das Vergessen nicht ein exzellenter, evolutionär bewährter Mechanismus zur Gewichtung von Informationen? Beeinträchtigt das permanente Erinnern nicht unser Urteils- und Entscheidungsvermögen und damit unsere Entwicklungsfähigkeit? Sind aus ihrem Kontext gerissene Informationen nicht anfällig für Manipulationen? Mayer-Schönberger öffnet uns die Augen für die Gefahren der ewigen digitalen Erinnerung und zeigt die wichtige Rolle auf, die das Vergessen in unserer Geschichte gespielt hat. Er plädiert für eine genial einfache Lösung: Dateien aller Art mit einem Verfallsdatum auszustatten, damit das Gedächtnis der Menschheit nicht unter der Datenflut zusammenbricht.
