Personal data means data which relate to a living individual who can be identified and includes any expression of opinion about the individual and any indication of the intentions of the data controller or any other person in respect of the individual.
The surveillance incident follows a growing concern for many about the possibility of their identity being stolen. Identity thieves have the potential to plunder bank accounts, run up credit card balances, and perpetrate malicious mischief on innocent people or in their names. According to a recent report based on data from the U.S. Department of Justice and Javelin Strategy and Research, about 11.5 million people are victims of identity fraud each year, with total financial losses of $21 billion. The personal stress and inconvenience suffered by victims is incalculable, to say nothing of the effort required to restore their good name and credit after the fact.The possibility of mass surveillance and incidents of identity theft are the consequences of living in a digital world. This is a world of interconnected electronic networks, massive databases, and sophisticated software that can search and link billions of data instantaneously. If you use a cell phone, drive a car, use credit cards or ATMs, or participate in social networks or retailer affinity programs, you leave traces of your identity behind. These traces can be assembled to depict a relatively accurate portrayal of your activities, movements, likes and dislikes, and your friends and associates.
While such technology makes our lives easier and more convenient, our digital footprints leave a path that dedicated predators (or simply curious data voyeurs), as well as hundreds of marketers, can use to gain access to your likes, dislikes, and idiosyncrasies. As a result of that path, sales pitches can be aimed specifically at you, or more sinister efforts may be engaged. By Michael Lewis,(Money crashers)
The battle between those who seek to protect data and those who seek to access it continues. Whenever one or the other gains an advantage, the other side is quick to make changes and overtake it.
