Conversations At The Intersection Of IT Security And Society
Melanie Ensign, Uber | Bennett Cyphers, EFF
Sean Martin | Marco Ciappelli
All your trips’ data belong to us — and so does your privacy.
We are having this conversation because LADOT is requesting that all the shared scooter companies give them all the data they collect as a condition “sine qua non” if they want to do business on the streets of L.A..
The amount of information that LADOT is hoping to collect is quite extensive and it’s unclear what will be done with the data once received except that it will be sent to a third-party data aggregator — AND the data collected is subject to public access requests, which means that if anyone wants it, they can have it.
So where do we stand as consumers if this initiative goes further? Where do morals and humanity stand on this topic? When we make new rules and regulations, we must think about the future that we want because the right to privacy is the right to freedom.
