Surveillance Society: Negative Aspects Of Government Data Mining
Surveillance Society. We already know that the government and private entities collect a vast amount of personal data about our everyday activities. Previously I commented about the dangers and intrusion of private entities maintaining transactional databases and having access to this wealth of personal information. It is also dangerous and intrusive for government entities to have access to this information without meeting the requirements for a search warrant. Critical to understanding why it is dangerous for governments to have this information is knowing how it is collected and what they are doing with it.
