Privacy As Expected
Privacy As Expected: Real-Time Data Protection
Today, people and companies are literally in the dark about privacy and surveillance. In a world a of escalating privacy risks there is a like escalation in the security resources to address them. A way to address these risks is to share the expected privacy state publicly with people. Why not using standards interoperably share the expectation of privacy (globally) in the same formats and have the same meanings for active and contextual (operational) privacy? Currently organisations most often make their own policy for privacy and statements which are in fact seldom privacy policies at all, and more likely terms and conditions for the company and provide no operational privacy for the enterprise.
The economic and social benefits of international standards for open privacy are significant and apparent. They reduce the burden on people to understand privacy policies, reduce the privacy risk for people, and reduce the costs of providing privacy updates and notices.
