Data Privacy Protection From Government, Business And Individual’s Perspective
Data privacy is defined by Techopedia as information that contains private and usually personal data about an individual. (Techopedia) Being able to properly and secure this data is an important factor that the government, business and individuals that must be considered and be taken seriously. This is because the data stored contains personal information that is highly confidential and with today’s technological advancements this data have become more and more vulnerable to threats of unauthorised access by hackers and other activities that would otherwise prove illegal. As such rules and regulations have been introduced so that we are all protected when providing personal details in every transaction that requires us to give out personal information. Personal data and other records (whether medical or financial) are usually collected by many organisations in order to improve their service, advertise or to help identify individuals as quickly as possible. They are an important part of our today’s society that is required by the ongoing technological advancements that is happening around the world. Data privacy management requires each and every one of us to play an important role and responsibility towards maintaining our privacy information in check whether it’s from government, business and or individual’s perspective. Not being able to do so, may result in serious consequences or jeopardise an entity.
Firstly, the government has a critical role to make sure that only those with authorised access can view an individual’s personal data. According to (Bennett 2009) the concept of [data privacy] is fused with data protection, which interprets privacy in terms of management of personal information”(Bennett 2009). The Privacy Act 1988, regulates how organisations and individuals handles personal information that helps identify a person. This could be through a phone number, signature or date of birth, all of which are personal details. Under this law outlines the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) that covers all relevant information that must be followed. (Australian Government, Office of the Australian Information Commissioner, OAIC). The Privacy act 1988, acts and enforces the guidelines to which an extent of whether an individual can maintain “anonymous or using a pseudonym where necessary” (OAIC). The government sets out the data security standards that many businesses and individuals has to follow so that they are protected and in control of the usage of their information. They also educate the community regarding privacy issues, undertake investigations and also develop legislations that will ensure the security of data. The government is the governing body that allows all this to be successfully enact throughout Australia. They acquire data for the sole purpose of identifying an individual so that they can provide the proper service when necessary.
Thirdly, while we can’t control the outcomes from third party safety protocols on data privacy, individuals may stride to develop their own safety system so that they can protect themselves by setting up passwords and being careful online whenever you’re on social media or purchasing goods or services on online platforms. Developing a password that isn’t too ‘predictable’ is one way that you, yourself as an individual can do. By using longer passwords and random letters and number combinations can make it hard for anyone to access your information. Being on social media can also make an individual vulnerable to random pop up ads that requires you to sign up to their services or purchasing goods, that is why it’s really important that research on the companies should be done to make sure that they are legitimate and can keep your information safe. (N. Lord, 2019). It is also the individual’s responsibility that they constantly update their protection system which can be simply as changing passwords every 3-6 months. Being careful on what you do online can really make a difference in achieving and developing a safer system that will keep your personal information safe. (N. Lord, 2019)
With the rise of the technological revolution in social world and benefits it creates, comes also concerns and issues about the range of use of those technologies. The use of big data is just a small, but nevertheless, important issue in the common world and raises many questions such as the process of data collection, how much information is gathered about a person and how that information is being used, whether there is a balance between benefits and costs and...
Ethics is the responsibility of a user to intelligently abide by what has been set. Privacy implies a personal secret or confidential matter that can not be told by anyone. Social media can be defined as a place for us to live with people even through long distances. Besides, we can also use it in personal affairs, business, family and friends. Between ethics while using this social media by using good words or writing in each of our responses to...
Introduction A couple of years ago when I discussed with my friend the prospects of relocating to Bangalore from Dubai, I was helped with solutions from someone who eavesdropped my conversation. It was Facebook and Google on my phone that posted ads of cheap tickets to Bangalore, home-stays that I could rent out in the city, with specifics that matched my requirements. It was definitely convenient to find what I needed, but I was startled with the thought of someone...
Anything you put on the internet, is there forever. An unfortunate, but almost certain fact of life, but there is a chance it does not have to be. The United States of America is often seen at the forefront of change and takes pride in being a global superpower. Despite this, it sorely lacks important privacy and data protection laws to shield its citizens online. The European Union, on the other hand, has made strides in this regard, particularly with...
Some companies and researchers argue it’s not enough for the government to simply protect personal data; consumers need to own their information and be paid when it’s used. Some social networks have experimented with rewarding users with cryptocurrency when they share content or spend time using their platforms. Other companies have tried paying the users in exchange for sharing data with them. But allowing users to take back ownership likely wouldn’t solve most privacy issues posed by personal data collection....

There is plenty of research undertaken on the subject of public surveillance and that within the British education system. Lyon’s theory of the ‘card cartel’ focuses on the fundamental changes it creates for the definitions of ‘citizen’ and ‘state’ as well as the relationship between these two concepts. He uses Marxist theory to argue that identification gives the bourgeoisie, the middle- and upper-classes, power over the proletariat, the working class (2009). Using the example of a passport, he argues identification...
Facebook needs to be extremely careful with it’s privacy issues and needs to deal with it immediately. The ethics of privacy being exposed through social media is extremely sensitive and public. Thus, as Porter & Kramer state “Strategy and society is the link between competitive advantage and corporate social responsibility” and companies need to address and protect this model. Companies usually learn from there mistakes, and as long as they fix these issues the issues can be resolved. This model...
Abstract Why does the law bind people, and which law is binding? The answers that are attempted to this question often lead to discussions on interaction and relation (or lack thereof) of law and morality, and relate to the question of effectiveness of a law. The current paper aims to present these much trodden jurisprudential questions albeit in a novel setting. Focusing on issues of infringement of intellectual property and corruption as two examples, the paper aims to discuss whether...
