Emergency Surveillance Laws. Invisible Claws.

Is not this a crazy world we live in? In the USA the Supreme Court orders the police to keep their hands away from your smartphone. On the other side of the ocean, the UK lawmakers are busy little bees. In a blink of an eye, they have passed some important data surveillance laws.

The bloody attacks in London were the very trigger for the UK security plans. It has not been an easy thing to make telecommunication companies and Internet providers to keep a record of data for as long as it may be necessary for the police. And, now you have it the main boxing event privacy vs security.

Security and police officers in the UK can access your phone data and Internet records more easily. And, there is not too much you can do about it. To make things even worse this story is the stubbornness of both parties. Both privacy and security protectors feel strong about their causes.

And yes, they want more authority. What does it mean? A little bit of less warranty requirements can improve our security. We all know where this one leads, don’t we? There has to be some compromising solution, but it seems we cannot find it for the time being. Until then, stay safe and eyes open all the time.
