@Lyndon_Henry agree with you about the US, though I believe that was deeply ingrained in our culture years before the election. The only thing is that American companies will have to be more careful about how they handle data that comes in from the EU to remain compliant, and that could affect quite a number of businesses with global operations.

In his blog, Jon writes "Only time will tell, but it seems as if the tide may be turning against the idea of mass, digital data collection without oversight."

I for one am not gonna hold my breath, especially with regard to the USA, for at least several reasons:

• The big corporate gorillas have large, well-funded bags of magic tricks that somehow allow them to evade or skirt the rules ...

• The big corporate gorillas basically control the bureaucracies that write the rules in the first place ...

• Trump ...

It is very interesting how these rules will work after Brexit...

Michelle, I think the entire Brexit process will take years to fully realize there are so many interrelationships and issues that need to be addressed. There are broad scale negotiations that will need to happen within the EU and with outside countries that already had trade deals etc. with EU and now need new ones with the UK. In a changing political climate, I expect it will not be an easy break or an easy process to rebuild.

Joe that's a great point, I don't know that Americans understand their privacy on the same level that people have seen their privacy violated and used against them as you described. If we don't remember history, we destined to repeat it...

@impactnow I'm curious to see how the regulations will be applied once Brexit is complete. New regulations and newly separated state seems like a recipe for complex issues.

@joe so true. We take privacy for granted since we haven't been ruled by a dictator or communist ruling party. According to alarmists, there's still time for us to experience such things. I can see where such things could happen, but not from the same perspective of the alarmists.

I just ran into this article today.  Per the Mirror UK "A sex toy company has been ordered to pay a fine of over £3 million after shipping a "smart vibrator" that tracked customers' usage without their knowledge or consent..........Customers in the US who used the vibrator's associated app, We-Connect, are entitled to the full amount, while those who simply bought the vibrator can claim up to $199 (£160)."  



 

Wow ... and I thought that IoT-connected toilet was outrageously invasive. This takes the cake ... or something ...

Here is one iris image hacking scenario.

When a camera takes a picture of the iris', a digital image of the iris pattern is captured. The scanned image is converted into iris codes before it can be stored as a template in the database.  When a hacker finds the database is not encrypted, he gets a template from the database. Once in his hands,  he can change the iriscode or infect it with marlware and return it to the sources address.

Of course, there are other scenarios.

@maryam: Culture and history play a big part of it.  Many Europeans are old enough to remember oppressive anti-privacy regimes (notably the Stasi in East Germany, and the secret police in other formerly Communist, Soviet-bloc nations).  The US, on the other hand, is so new that we have a rather spoiled attitude when it comes to our privacy; we take it for granted.
