Navigating IT Security on a Global Scale
- Censorship – how governments are shifting their tactics from outright blocking to more direct demands for content removal, enforcing compliance directly with companies that want to do business in the country and punishing the content creators when they cannot restrict a company from hosting content outside the country.
- Surveillance – Surveillance is increasing even in “free” countries, and it is becoming a necessity for most countries, or so it seems.
- Stigmatizing encryption – Some governments have begun taking the presence of encryption to be an attempt to hide and therefore punishable.
- “Right to be forgotten” – this term has to do with a person’s ability to hide links to content from the search engines when it is no longer accurate or relevant, etc.This topic will likely see a lot more clarity over the next few years as companies and governments set better standards of conduct.
