10 government databases 'will break the law'


rinf.com



AT least 10 of the giant government databases built or planned by ministers unlawfully breach privacy, according to a report.

The computer registers — including the DNA database, the national identity register, the Contactpoint child protection database and the health service patients’ register – all breach human rights and data protection laws, the Joseph Rowntree Reform Trust will say in research released tomorrow.

It argues that they should be scrapped or fundamentally redesigned to take privacy objections into account.

The report, whose joint author, an academic expert on privacy at Cambridge University who is one of the most respected in Britain, warns that ministers are planning to spend a further £100 billion on information technology databases over the next five years while only 30% of big information technology projects succeed.

Claims by the government that the databases make the provision of public services such as health easier are dismissed as “illusory”.

I see this as "invasion of privacy", and a significant way to control the population, and deprive them of their freedom.
Big brother doesn't want it's people free, it wants to dominate. When are people going to wake up? How many stories like this does it take?
The more i search, the more horrible it becomes. I talk often in my other posts about manipulation. But this is the ultimate manipulation of man vs man.
I dream of a world with no bounderies, and freedom of the mind. It might be wishfull thinking...
When are we going be free from these dominators?

Peace.

Indeed, i agree 100%. Technology seems to be against us sometimes. We need it in certain areas like in hospitals, but to use technology against the people is an outrage. I'm trying my best to stay out of the "system". The less my name appears in databases, the better it is...
