Citizen 2.0: transcript

I blogged about the New Statesman’s digital privacy round table which I chaired last month, and now I can link to the transcript.

From the blurb:

In the past 10 years or so, the digital environment has changed so quickly that it has been difficult for legislation to keep pace.

With the consumer content that Web 2.0 has generated, there is ever more data floating about the ether. Consumers supply companies with personal details so that they can gain access to online tools or content; the companies use those details to market to those consumers. When one company buys another company, who does the data belong to? Certainly it is not in the hands of the consumer.

Widely publicised breaches of security regarding data have highlighted consumer concerns about how their personal details are treated, as well as online fraud and identity theft.

Read up on the views of the Information Commissioner, the head of the Serious Organised Crime Agency e Crime Unit, the head of Microsoft’s Government Affairs department and others, and let me know your views.
