This Upstate NY school district is adding facial recognition that can track students

Syracuse.com By Tribune News Service Next school year, Lockport schools will have in place the kind of security software used at airports, casinos and sensitive government installations. Facial recognition and tracking software will add an unprecedented level of security at the schools. District officials have decided locked entrance doors, bullet-proof glass and sign-in registers at the front desk are not enough. “We always have to be on our guard. We can’t let our guard down,” Lockport Superintendent Michelle T. Bradley said. “That’s the world that we’re living in. Times have changed. For the Board of Education and the Lockport City School District,...

Cambridge Analytica starts bankruptcy proceedings in US

BBC News Cambridge Analytica has filed for bankruptcy in the US. The consultancy was at the centre of the Facebook data-sharing scandal in which it was accused of improperly obtaining information on users. The bankruptcy proceedings are part of the process of closing down the company and its UK parent, SCL Elections, that started in early May. The company blamed a “siege of media coverage” for driving away customers and forcing its closure. In court papers filed with a New York court, Cambridge Analytica said it had assets of up to $500,000 (£370,000) and debts in the range of $1m to...

Search US cell carriers are selling access to your real-time phone location data

Thanks Susan! ZDNet Four of the largest cell giants in the US are selling your real-time location data to a company that you’ve probably never heard about before. In case you missed it, a senator last week sent a letter demanding the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) investigate why Securus, a prison technology company, can track any phone “within seconds” by using data obtained from the country’s largest cell giants, including AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint, through an intermediary, LocationSmart.

Of Two Minds – Connecting the Dots of Big Data, Soaring Corporate Profits and Trade Wars

Charles Hugh Smith It’s self-evident that we cannot possibly understand trade, soaring corporate profits, Facebook’s data collection or the economy without understanding the core role played by Big Data in reaping outsized profits and pushing narratives. Let’s connect the dots between these two comments from longtime correspondents: the first is on the model of collecting and selling data (Big Data), and the second on trade: GFB: “If I had a lot of money, would I want to do: A) –invest in the exploration forbidding areas of the globe for oil reserves with a 50/50 chance of no results –negotiate leases...

FACEBOOK MOVES 1.5 BILLION USERS’ DATA OUT OF EUROPE TO CIRCUMVENT NEW PRIVACY LAW

The Last American Vagabond This doesn’t bode well for Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and what remains of his tattered credibility. After Zuck suggested (but stopping short of promising) during testimony before Congress last week that he would treat all Facebook users’ data as if it fell under the European Union’s new General Data Protection Regulation, Reuters and the Guardian are reporting that Facebook has quietly moved the data of more than 1.5 billion users out of reach of European privacy law by transferring it from the company’s European headquarters in Ireland to its global headquarters in California. Here’s the Guardian: In a tweak to its...

Grindr shares users’ HIV status with third-party companies: report

The Hill Grindr, a gay dating and hook-up app, has reportedly provided its users’ HIV statuses to two outside companies. Apptimize and Localytics, both data-optimization firms, have received certain information that some Grindr users choose to include in their profiles, including their HIV status and “last tested date.” Antoine Pultier, a researcher who discovered Grindr’s data sharing and spoke with BuzzFeed News about it, said that other information provided to the two companies including GPS data, phone ID and email, could allow the companies to identify specific individuals with HIV. “The HIV status is linked to all the other information. That’s the...

Here’s Why That Recent Abuse of Facebook Data Matters

Futurism Your data is probably being used without your consent. This is, I hope, not a shock to you. In fact, it’s one of the biggest takeaways of the recent investigation involving Facebook and a data mining company called Cambridge Analytica. The short version: Cambridge Analytica used a quiz app to scrape data such as users’ identities, their friend networks, and likes from millions of Facebook users. Users inadvertantly gave consent by agreeing to the user conditions in the app. The company later used that data to build targeted political ads for Donald Trump’s political campaign, the New York Times, which conducted the investigation along with The...

#DeleteFacebook Movement Gains Steam After 50 Million Users Have Data Leaked

The Wrap People are jumping on Twitter to announce their breakup with Facebook.

Consumer Reports: Your ‘Smart’ TV Remains A Privacy & Security Dumpster Fire

Tech Dirt By now it has been pretty well established that the security and privacy of most “internet of things” devices is decidedly half-assed. Companies are so eager to cash in on the IOT craze, nobody wants to take responsibility for their decision to forget basic security and privacy standards. As a result, we’ve now got millions of new attack vectors being introduced daily, including easily-hacked “smart” kettles, door locks, refrigerators, power outlets, Barbie dolls, and more. Security experts have warned the check for this dysfunction is coming due, and it could be disastrous. Smart televisions have long been part of this conversation, where security...

Congress Quietly Pushing Bill To Require National Biometric ID For “ALL Americans”

Activist Post By Matt Agorist Earlier this month,  Rep. Bob Goodlatte [R-VA-6] introduced H.R.4760 – Securing America’s Future Act of 2018, a sweeping bill that entails everything from Education and the Workforce to Homeland Security to the military. Also, tucked away in this 400-page behemoth of a bill are the details of a new biometric National ID card that could soon be required for everyone. Not surprisingly, there is almost no media coverage on this legislation. H.R. 4760 establishes a mandatory National Identification system that requires all Americans to carry a government-approved ID containing “biometric features.” Without this card, according to the legislation,...

Chinese Internet Users Start To Rebel Against Lack Of Online Privacy

Tech Dirt from the just-a-blip-or-the-start-of-something-bigger? dept We recently reported how China continues to turn the online world into the ultimate surveillance system, which hardly comes as a surprise, since China has been relentlessly moving in this direction for years. What is rather more surprising is that Chinese citizens are beginning to push back, at least in certain areas. For example, The New York Times reports on an “outcry” provoked by a division of the Alibaba behemoth when it assumed that its users wouldn’t worry too much if they were enrolled automatically in one of China’s commercially-run tracking systems: Ant Financial, an affiliate of the e-commerce giant...

Check Your Insects: Insect Drones Have Existed Since The 1970s

Natural Blaze By Markab Algedi, Natural Blaze Did you know that creating lethal viruses in a lab was recently legalized in the US, after decades upon decades of secret and often illegal work with biological warfare? It’s worse than that: new biowarfare facilities are openly being opened still. As it turned out to be worse than Americans could have ever imagined, disclosure after disclosure of biowarfare events over the years, it is also worse than we know when it comes to drones: especially insect-like drones that can function as surveillance devices or worse. Insect drones, drones made to look like dragonflies or other insects are...
