The #onlineharms Bill heading to Parliament aims to undermine #encryption and risks overreaching into everyday communications in private messaging apps, says Heather Burns, ORG’s new policy manager. #privacy
We have until 22 October to tell the @DCMS how to improve the #DataProtectionAct. @mattr3 explains why this is a vital opportunity to improve UK #privacy, and how you can help.⬇️
Did the UK learn from the #CambridgeAnalytica scandal? Or will the @ICOnews’s reluctance to enforce #dataprotection law hold us back? Our data & democracy officer @PascalCrowe investigates.
If you missed our panel Friday scrutinising #COVID19 tracker apps across the UK & Ireland, watch the video now on our Youtube channel. Thanks again to our wonderful speakers @OlgaCronin @PatrickCorrigan @mattr3 Dr Stephen Farrell & all who attended! #privacy #NHSCOVID19app

“Dominic Cummings back of a fag packet plan and his fetish with big data endangers UK’s ability to fight serious crime and keep its citizens safe.” - @jimkillock https://www.openrightsgroup.org/press-releases/cummings-data-plan-threatens-uk-privacy-rights/

This is the story of fighting and winning for #Privacy. @10DowningStreet @DHSCgovuk admitted #TestAndTrace was deployed unlawfully. ORG ended up doing the regulator's job! But where was the ICO? A new blog by @jimkillock #COVID19
Against the background of 'techlash' our new report with @demos, the cross party think tank, demonstrates a positive use case for technology to enhance our democracy.
