The selfie phenomenon is undoubtedly making the NSA’s job easier by producing a mountain of tagged online data to feed its facial recognition algorithms.


A report in The New York Times, based on documents from 2011 obtained by the NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, reveals that the US security agency’s reliance on facial recognition technology has grown significantly under the Obama administration – coinciding with a rise in popularity of taking and tagging self portraits on online social networks.

BYOD: Like inviting your boss into your house when you're not home

BYOD: Like inviting your boss into your house when you're not home | Passe-partout | Scoop.it
The Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) movement is gaining traction, but before you bring your phone to work you'd better think it through.

 

What you must realize is that your employer may insist at some point to scrutinize what's on your BYOD phone. Perhaps there's a rumor that an employee is grabbing company information, or that someone is snapping photos of sensitive things in the office. Maybe your company simply wants to update your work apps or settings.

 

Whatever the reason, it's not outside the realm of possibility that one day your employer may analyze the information on your phone. Yes, it's your personal phone but the BYOD situation means it's also the same as a work-provided phone.

 

Maybe it's not a big deal if your boss asks you to hand your phone over, but it still won't be a comfortable situation. What personal photos have you taken that reside on the phone? What intimate text messages have you exchanged with your spouse? You get the picture. It would be sort of like inviting your boss to your home when you're not there. What might he find snooping around your hacienda?

It's not just phones, either. Some folks are taking tablets to work and those may expose even more personal data. Tablet owners usually surf the web more heavily on a tablet than a phone.

 

===> What would your boss see if your web history was analyzed? <===

 

A MUST read!!!
