Net firms start storing user data. - April 6th 2009, 04:35 PM

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/7985339.stm The plans were drawn up in the wake of the London bombings in 2005. ISPs and telecoms firms have resisted the proposals while some countries in the EU are contesting the directive. Jim Killock, executive director of the Open Rights Group, said it was a "crazy directive" with potentially dangerous repercussions for citizens. All ISPs in the European Union will have to store the records for a year. An EU directive which requires telecoms firms to hold on to telephone records for 12 months is already in force. The data stored does not include the content of e-mails or a recording of a net phone call, but is used to determine connections between individuals. Authorities can get access to the stored records with a warrant. Governments across the EU have now started to implement the directive into their own national legislation. The UK Home Office, responsible for matters of policing and national security, said the measure had "effective safeguards" in place.

Hmm, I'm kinda mixed on this. I agree with the whole concept of national security, but I don't like the details of everyone I communicate with, and the frequency, being stored in a database, ESPECIALLY with the UK's track record of losing data and being hacked/infected.
Also, there's mention of a warrant being required, but that doesn't stop everyone from getting it anyway. A person with a good social network can talk their way into getting access, or if they're really determined, they could fabricate evidence to get the warrant. Any judge would be quick to grant a warrant on any morsel of evidence in the name of national security, or more so, in fear of forever being branded the judge who got it wrong.

I'd personally be more comfortable biometric security on the database - with records of who accessed what information, when and based on what evidence.

Identify theft will be higher if hackers get that info!

I honestly don't like any of my data being stored. I hate to think of the traces I leave on the internet. I try not to worry, however.

Hmm should the UK really be doing this after all the data CDs they've already lost?

Hey I don't mean to be petty, but I posted a thread about this a while back.

Can be found at http://www.teenhelp.org/forums/showthread.php?t=8093&highlight=emails


I do think crime will be higher, since I don't trust our government.

I did not realize that the email law was the same as this. Because this is a duplicate, I'm going to close it. Direct all conversation in the link that Lozza posted.
