- 2017, August 17, Motherboard, “The Ethics of Doxing Nazis on Social Media” — interesting. The problem is private citizens deciding the fate of others. It is not acceptable – no matter the supposed charge – to allow anyone to simply dig up information on someone presuming their guilt. Flies in the face of how justice works.
- 2017, August 16, ICO, “Consent is not the ‘silver bullet’ for GDPR compliance” — perhaps, but the alternatives are fairly limited.
- 2017, August 16, SSRN, “Liberation, Not Extortion: The Fate of Internet Ad-Blocking in German and American Law” — I accept that some online advertising should exist – content creators need income. However, ad-tech needs to get smart and seamlessly integrate with the overall UX.
- 2017, August 16, Tech Republic, “US Sec. Mattis pushes military AI, experts warn of hijacked ‘killer robots’” — just think of all the supply chain vulnerabilities with this!
- 2017, August 15, Reuters, “Tech companies urge Supreme Court to boost cellphone privacy” — why worry so much about government accessing data? What about the vast array of other actors sucking up all your data? Let me count the ways … dodgy phone apps, dodgy mobile websites, dodgy Chrome extensions, and even flaky Trusted Execution Environment.
- 2017, August 7, EHR Intelligence, “How Strong Health Data Governance Ensures EHR Data Integrity“

Probably a bit off topic, but what a train-wreck the Trump Administration is. How on Earth did this guy get elected? Is there an agenda; a plan; anything resembling a direction? I think there are times when we can honestly say that ‘crowd wisdom’ is a misnomer.
I am hearing a lot more about supply chain attacks when it comes to cyber security. It makes sense considering more people use anti-virus and (seem to) take client-side protection seriously. What better way to infiltrate an organisation than to keep moving up the supply chain and by-pass end-user security?
When it comes to GDPR I think we need to remember that there is zero case-law. How the regulation plays out for enforcement and the detail of implementation is yet unknown. But speculation is rife.
