Disbelief and sarcasm, for starters.
5-eyes' problem isn't tracking terrorists, molestors, mafia etc.
These countries want the ability to see what normal citizens are doing.
Terrorists, molestors, mafia etc can/will use encryption REGARDLESS of the law.
It's the combined field values "cnt=1" and "cust_gender=2" in the snapshot.
The 4 combinations give birth gender and current gender, set by primary sexual characteristic currently fitted. Fails to cover neuters and those rare occurrences with both kit.
"However, you should know that some of your personal information may have been exposed, which may have included one or more of the following: name, billing zip code, phone number, email address, account number and account type (prepaid or postpaid)."
Sounds like financial data to me.
Actually cats have a negative time generator, because they spend 100% of the time asleep, yet still manage to serve the input and output functions as well.
Phair said he would prefer to see governments better engage with the industry: “It's not legislation or ten million dollar fines, it's working with companies on next product suites so there can be lawful interception.”
This is dumb. Oz gov can't work with every company, so either the relationships become legislated state secrets or the ppl wanting to avoid compromise use untampered products.
Remember how popular the original Microchip PICs were, despite subroutines only being allowed in lower pages and memory segmentation pointer.
"If you don't have a My Health Record and don't want one created for you, you will need to opt out."
"However, if you decide later that you would like a My Health Record, you can create one at any time by following the steps to register."
All the data on everyone will be in this database. It's just the data access portal called "My Health Record" will only be enabled per the opt-in/out system. One check box.
So everyone's data will be vulnerable, because it's the database that gets shared, copied etc. Opting out of this one portal helps a little, but not much.
"...way for people to transfer data into and out of online services".
There is no transfer. It's copying. Transfer implies moving the data, so the data is no longer at the origin. Not so, folks.
... that picture is just of someone's worn tyre tread.
The Normans invaded in 1066. And won. So what exactly is 'foreign' and 'british' anyway?
The definition or terrorism support is deliberately vague (otherwise governments would be guilty too), and the laws have the most powers.
The organisation was fined, not the guilty individuals.
You've got Germans buying their cars in Netherlands to pay lower VAT.
I built a house in one part of USA and ending up buying all the white goods over the internet from another state because it much much cheaper than locally. With a lot of big ticket items (hob, oven, fridge, dishy, washer, drier) the savings was thousands.
Let's presume UK police follow this retention law to the letter. There's nothing in there about prior DNA sharing with 5 Eyes, Interpol etc and managing that flow.
Just because the trivially sized data for DNA, FP, facial isn't on a UK DB, that doesn't mean the search request can't be against a BD in USA for example, which was automatically passed the info on generation.
Also, tracking of unconvicted individuals coded as 'terrorist suspects' surely comes under different constraints, so loophole there too.
Parallel construction of evidence is so easy nowadays.
I doubt that any DNA data has been deleted. May not show up as being associated with a specific person when a match is made, so plod has to go up the chain to de-identify.
Investigative orgs never destroy identification data. Just hide it from view by lower lever minions.
It doesn't require machine learning to early detect cancers. It requires repeated high resolution scans of the areas of concern, and diff analysis of the scans over time to detect change.
That is not going to be performed because of the expense.
Machine learning is fine for digging out needles in haystacks, but it can't invent patient data to determine causality let alone do pre-diagnosis.
Realistically, the anayses will at best correlate lifestyle/genetics/whatever against statistical cancer risk. For which, of course, there's just a tiny privacy implication.
Firstly, Ofcom issued guidelines not mandated, and they "consider that 1 hour battery back-up capability represents an appropriate minimum level of protection to provide to customers taking FTTP services".
The issue isn't just consumer premise equipment. It's forcing the telecom provider to not rely on consumer power for the switching network. This costs money - backup battery stacks and generators.
Because battery backup is mandated for POTS (must work in event of power failure) but not for non-POTS because the necessary-service laws are very old.
That covers the client's local power, not the power to the intermediate distribution box up a pole or in a grey box at the side of the road.
If the power goes down - anywhere - my POTS phone still works to the CLEC. Because they are battery backed up by law, as essential service. The new system?
I got a dump of my data from The Work Number some years ago, and they had every single pay amount from Freescale for whom I have worked, which Freescale voluntarily gave them as part of the network. No, I wasn't asked if it was ok to pass across the highest possible granularity of my pay to a 3rd party data aggregator.
Equinefax... because their data management is the horse's arse.
Motor Trend magazine is probably the highest circulation new car mag, and the ads feature hunks chewing tobacco, more hunks driving trucks bigger than a space shuttle, watches with more complications than aforementioned space vehicle, hideously ugly jewelry with broad-bean sized non-precious stones for the The Wife... and smiling hetero-couple ED treatment ads at the back.
The guns magazine ads are even more steotyped. Slinky ladies featuring small handguns in a thigh holster (!), chunky men in camo carrying the latest black rifle.
But apart from the patriarchal sexist crap, the annoyance of ads is being flooded with toaster ads after buying one online. Do people collect toasters... ooh, that's a nice toaster, let's get than one too!
Americans have a tough time too in court. American companies, however, settle out of court for a small fine and no admission of guilt.
And that's only 24 days of writing at 267Mbyte/s. Hmm. Backup storage?
To renew a UK passport abroad, need to apply on the internet and have an email address for the personalised form to be sent.
Put the 3 examples in Google:
"The use of" "parts is required to keep your" "manufacturer’s warranties and any extended warranties intact"
"This warranty shall not apply if this product" "is used with products not sold or licensed by"
"This warranty does not apply if this product" "has had the warranty seal on the" "altered, defaced, or removed."
In FreeNAS if a ZFS pool is allowed to become full, the pool becomes unavailable for read or delete. ZFS writes a small file to the disk at the start of every transaction, and so if can't then the transaction is pooched. I hope the ZFS implementation on Linux has fixed that, and BSD implementations such as FreeNAS can follow suit.
"Widespread use of ANPR means cameras across the country submit between 25 million and 35 million read records to the national ANPR data centre each day. There are more than 22 billion records in the database."
That's about two years worth. The cameras have been building up for a long, long time. M25 upgrade 20-odd years ago for a start, which used plate reading to calculate speeds over long distances.
Since UK is the only EU member of 5 eyes, any agreement should explicitly exclude UK being used as backdoor for getting EU citizen data to USA.
Not easy to come to a working agreement, well done, and hope you can work through the initial frictions.
Your opnion is protected, expert or idiot.
The European Court of Human Rights held in 2008 that UK holding DNA samples of individuals arrested but not convicted is unlawful. HMG has farted arround ever since with consultations etc.
Per wikipedia: According to The Independent on 27 July 2011, the UK government "has indicated that destroying the DNA of the innocent would be impossible because the records are mixed up in batches alongside the DNA of the guilty."
So UK government has essentially ignored the ECHR ruling.
...are there to protect the gullible, the less informed, the less analytical population.
If you eat beef once a year, every year, then you eat beef regularly.
Just not frequently.
So please change your engine oil frequently (I suggest 60% to 75% of the OCI). I don't care how regular that interval is, depends on your car use pattern dunnit.
Been asked for my transcript a few times by US recruitment, and got bewilderment every time on disclosing that UK universities don't do that.
Just curious, I'm stuck on the west coast, so not going to pollute your region with my relo.
Thanks for volunteering!
Different situation. US execs are employed under a contract, negotiated individually, which explicitly states under what circumstances the two parties can be separated. Being booted for gross misconduct allows the company to do a lot usually.
...unless it mandates that someone around the top of the food chain goes to jail if data flows inappropriately.
You probably do want to answer the phone after buying summat pricey with a CC, because it could be the CC company validating the transaction. Or have voicemail to catch those situations...
Real people got a KSR-33, innit.
California's Supreme Court covers, possibly unsurprisingly, just CA. So "US cops can't keep license plate data scans secret without reason" snot quite true. Only the CA ones.
"..the Feds eventually opted instead to pay for a zero-day vulnerability to circumvent the passcode."
That's what they said. Also possible is that it had been broken before inadmissably (no warrant), and they wanted to avoid having the technique (or the act) publicised.
Since Adobe sicked USG on him that time for doing lawful engineering in Russia, oh yes, I'm sure he's not feeling overly incentivized to conceal USG secrets.
People who need to pass on critical medical info before treatment should wear a wristband with the info, in case of admission unconscious.
"t will have to adhere to the GDPR for about a year"
So some non-govermental institution fails to follow GDPR, one takes it to court, and by the time it goes through the Data Protection Bill is active, and the court throws the case out as moot because the new law will allow anything to happen with any data under any circumstance.
Unfortunately all governments want organisations to collect everything, because governments want to categorise people as threat/non-threat to the state. Not "terrorism", just "effective dissent against the state" is the threat.
