Free read Data and Goliath 106 Our own making But have we given up than we’ve gained In Data and Goliath security expert Bruce Schneier offers another path one that values both security and privacy He brings his bestseller up to date with a new preface covering the latest developments and then shows us exactly what we can do to reform government surveillance programs shake up surveillance based business models and protect our individual privacy You'll never look at your phone your computer your credit cards or even your car in the same way aga. There is nothing that has made me frightened of the prospect of Donald Trump as US President than reading this book This is not because the book mentions Trump it is a safe Trump less read but because the detailed image Schneier draws of the NSA and its frenemies Google Apple and other tech companies not to mention low profile security start ups offers a truly terrifying secret police state able not only to know what we are thinking but also to shape it Schneier s moderate chatty factual tone counteracts the dystopian future content but of course this simply reinforces the dawning realisation that we are at the dawn of technologystatecorporate alliances that could fundamentally change how democracy and society workThe spine of the book is Schneier drawing on various sources he heavily uses Snowden s leaked info but also records from various court cases journalistic investigations and his own work all meticulously footnoted for easy self research to explain how data is collected stored traded and used by governments and corporations The strength of the book though the thing that will make it worth reading long after this info is out of date is Schneier s clear understanding of why this occurs how mass surveillance is about social control whether that is exerted to stop us protesting or taking drugs or to sell us things we don t need Schneier carefully demolishes the myth that surveillance fights terrorism devastatingly he asserts with footnotes that not a single terrorist attack has been prevented through mass surveillance techniues all pre emptive arrests have been the result of old fashioned targeted investigation techniues This makes sense he points out mass surveillance creates a huge amount of signal noise in the context of very rare very secretive crime If you are looking for a needle in a haystack the last thing you want to do is pile on a lot hayBut mass surveillance works very well for social control And yes there is the standard panopticon reference here But Schneier points out that knowing that everywhere we go we are captured on camera that if Trump became president and wanted a list of every person who attended a migrant rights rally last year and their personal details and hell breakfast cereal preferences this would be a trivial reuest for the NSA this changes the way we start to behave In this context Schneier even talks about the importance of law breaking in changing stupid laws with reference to LGBTI rights marijuana legalisation etc Even if we could assume that surveillance was only used to enforce perfect compliance with the law this would stunt our growth as a society our capacity to adjust and developBut even scarier is the trade and exploitation of personal data to interested stakeholders So if you make baby formula and you want a list of potential customers you would pay handsomely for a list of low income working pregnant women who lack any maternity leave for example a key target market Or maybe a list of gullible seniors for legal scam artists This exists and someone was actually prosecuted for selling it based on browser data obtained legally Or maybe you want to sell your 16 airbag bulletproof six figure car to people who lost loved ones in car accidents Schneier s scariest content for me was the swirl of data between commercial exploiters and the government on the one hand the NSA could be assumed to have free rein access to Google and Apple metadata pretty much everything moving through smart phones from GPS to email to your candy crush habit and on the other governments sell data to raise cash Incredibly the British NHS is contemplating the sale of Brit s medical data providing a rich resource for all those wanting to identify the sick and vulnerable to sell them thingsOf course it is at the point that the pull is joined by a push that we need to be aware of the power of Google et al What would happen asks Schneier if Google suddenly decided only to show enrol to vote ads to Democrat voters Statistically that may be enough to swing an election Or as one real estate search service did do show property ads only for neighborhoods of predominately the same race as the searcher Or show firearms ads to suicidal people of a particular political ethnic or cultural group Or display reproductive services ads only to women from certain demographicsBecause I read neurosciencey stuff as well one of the synergies which most hit me here was research that shows how influenced we are by the seuencing of information So women who are reminded that men score better than women on math tests will do worse in the test than those who weren t Police who have just heard about a black man shooting a cop are likely to shoot unarmed black men What we see online when we see it and what follows on from that changes the way we react to situations around us The power inherent in our mobile phones our search engines and our government databases is immenseThe uestion is how do we define what we want to do with this technology The kind of people we want to beAnd finally do we really want a world where our lives are totally transparent to those with power but the workings of that power the warrants the algorithms the extent of the surveillance are as obscure as blackout curtains Whose world is this anyway Girl of Nightmares up to date with a new preface
