Why we MUST be spied?!

Why we MUST be spied?! This question comes from a sad awareness: the information and communication technology infrastructure has been created to allow the spying. This is a very interesting point of view exposed by Mikko Hypponen along a TEDx event on October 2013 in Brussels. ( source Wireless Design & Development ) But I want to add more considerations on it. If the secret services and the Intelligence of USA or any other countries are doing their jobs, this it is supposed to guarantee security and national interests.

Big Data, cloud, virtualization are operations to enlarge the power and the controls of few, on all. To defend the right to privacy,...

Privacy and security: it’s a game called …PRISM!

In this article we can all ascertain how privacy and security it’s a new kind of game! ….and the players are : Governments and few powerful uncontrolled private ICT companies….while all of us are the pawns on a crazy chessboard. It’s really very worrying that governments are obliged to ask to private companies to disclose their servers to reach the goal of guaranteeing public security. It’s like a teacher asking to the student to leran more how to organize the lessons. I am not worried to be spied by the Government , if this is a anti-terrorism and security issue. Iam scared by the FACT that private companies have hectars of servers which store all information even the one which are in my right to remain only mine and so,...
