Comments on: Should you trust Facebook with your email? http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2010/11/19/should-you-trust-facebook-with-your-email/ Where media and technology meet Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:48:25 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: JoePublic http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2010/11/19/should-you-trust-facebook-with-your-email/#comment-384853 Wed, 01 Dec 2010 23:13:52 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/?p=23147#comment-384853 Facebook is already sharing information that I, obviously, never shared or agreed to share on Facebook, since I have never joined. They have already taken the liberty of passing my private email information without consent.
The statement by their CEO/Founder, that ‘Privacy is and should be dead’ is a clearcut admission of guilt of a global invasion of privacy. The only thing Facebook should be trusted with is a jail cell.

But that doesn’t make me want to hand over the rest of my intimate details to the company that caused it.
It’s kind of ironic that they started out as ‘the safest site on the web’.

This is a GREAT article, despite the dismay of breaches and data insecurities, in that it keeps one of my pet concerns front and center: Security. In David Scott’s words, everyone needs to be a mini-Security Officer today. I think that author is right: Most individuals and organizations enjoy Security largely as a matter of luck. For some free insight check out his blog, “The Business-Technology Weave” – you can Google to it. Anyone else here reading I.T. WARS? I had to read parts of this book as part of my employee orientation at a new job. The book talks about a whole new culture as being necessary – an eCulture – for a true understanding of security, being that most identity/data breaches are due to simple human errors. It has great chapters on security, as well as risk, content management, project management, acceptable use, various plans and policies, and so on. Google IT WARS – check out a couple links down and read the interview (full title is I.T. WARS: Managing the Business-Technology Weave in the New Millennium). “In the realm of risk, unmanaged possibilities become probabilities.” Keep “security” front and center! Great stuff.
