> Privacy by Disaster is what you get when you don't do Privacy by  
> Design -
> when you don't build privacy into technologies, business processes,  
> and
> infrastructures proactively, right from the beginning!

> The Apple iPhone/iPad controversy has put mobile location privacy in  
> the
> spotlight. The Sony PlayStation breach is another case in point.

> I would argue that it really boils down to control - personal  
> control over
> one's data flows. What's missing here? I'll tell you: it's the proper
> application of Fair Information Practices that form the core of our  
> Privacy
> by Design [ http://tinyurl.com/3w97u54 ] principles, namely:
>
> 1. Consent: Have the users provided their free and specific consent  
> for the
> collection, use and disclosure of this personal information? Make  
> the system
> user-centric.
>
> 2. Openness and Transparency: Give users clear, effective  
> notification of
> the information being collected - it is no good burying these  
> details deep
> inside a web site or a lengthy terms and conditions document.
>
> 3. Purpose specification: Clearly specify the purposes for which  
> personal
> information is collected, used, retained and disclosed.
>
> 4. Use limitation: Always limit the use of personal information to the
> relevant purposes identified to users.
>
> 5. Data Minimization: Limit the amount of data you collect and  
> retain - and
> anonymize the data so it can not be linked back to personal  
> identifiers.
>
> Failure to apply these universal principles damages business  
> reputations,
> product brands and services and, of course, individual privacy.  
> Classic
> lose-lose scenario.
>
> It doesn't have to be this way. Privacy by Disaster can be prevented
> altogether.  <| Powered by www.ISPIClips.com |>
>
> When Privacy by Design principles are applied early, robustly,
> systematically and across the business ecosystem, they can prevent  
> disasters
> from occurring in the first place, helping to preserve confidence and
> restoring trust.
>
> I encourage you to check out a number of PbD panels and workshops at  
> the
> IAPP Symposium, including the panel on PbD and Mobile Computing led by
> Assistant Privacy Commissioner Ken Anderson.
>
> You can also pick up a copy of our recently published Roadmap for  
> Privacy by
> Design in Mobile Communications: A Practical Tool for Developers,  
> Service
> Providers, and Users.

> Hopefully the Apple and Sony controversies will serve as a loud wake- 
> up
> call - for companies to embrace Privacy by Design, address privacy
> proactively and put control squarely in the hands of the users,  
> where it
> belongs.
