Can't miss the irony that the US is taking off TikTok from app stores because the Chinese may get access to US citizen data. I mean, isn't that the MO of the US Govt anyway?
It's becoming increasingly relevant, wear a mask! For others if not yourselves.
Big thanks to @JhalakKakkar@twitter.com and @email@example.com for helping with the logic of this piece. And of course @Aarathii1@twitter.com for her unmatched editing skills :)
Lastly, even after more than 3 yrs of the Supreme Court reaffirming privacy as a fundamental right, govt policy continues to focus on the mining of data rather than its protection. Exploitation is already the norm, law and policy should develop to protect it now.
Similarly, data trusts are an exciting model for consideration. Not the one's suggested by the NPD report but like the one's suggested by @ODIHQ@twitter.com or @AnoukRuhaak@twitter.com. But India needs to be careful before adoption. Adoption without enough testing might lead to more harm than good.
Collective privacy is something India needs to be mindful of while developing it's data governance framework. Big data makes the focus on individual privacy redundant.The NPD report takes account of this risk but focusses too much on exploiting data rather than protecting it.
I write for the @firstname.lastname@example.org on some key subjects India's data governance framework needs to be mindful of. Particularly, collective privacy and data trusts in context of the non-personal data governance framework.
A family member wanted to access an @HDFC_Bank@twitter.com branch in Delhi for some urgent work. They were not allowed to enter the branch unless a risk rating was shown on the @SetuAarogya@twitter.com. So they installed the app on the spot and were permitted to enter. How does this make any sense?
Revolutions take place when you let people educate, organize, and agitate! My fear is such stories will only embolden dictatorships to utilise internet shutdowns as tools to quell dissent.
PM Modi to India:
Happy Independence Day
Health 'Aadhaar' is coming
K. Thanks. Bye.
