The vast amount of data collected today makes it possible to predict political opinions, beliefs, religion, and interests, a collection of data that is strictly forbidden by law. And in great need of abidance.
Possession of data equals possession of power, and we can’t in good conscience trust anyone with that power. Welcome to a three-part series, introduced today and continued over the next two Thursdays, about how big data collection is one of the biggest failures to mankind. And yes, we are repeating ourselves.
- This week, we explain the background in which a privacy-focused VPN provider feels the need to address this kind of question.
- Next week, we’ll explain how storing series of anonymous data is simply not possible.
- Finally, we’ll explain why everyone is breaking the law and what to do about it.
