Pete Recommends – Weekly highlights on cyber security issues, December 19, 2021

Privacy and security issues impact every aspect of our lives – home, work, travel, education, health and medical records – to name but a few. On a weekly basis Pete Weiss highlights articles and information that focus on the increasingly complex and wide ranging ways technology is used to compromise and diminish our privacy and security, often without our situational awareness. Four highlights from this week: A Proposal to Block Companies From Using Biased Algorithms; The best way to protect personal biomedical data from hackers could be to treat the problem like a game; SEC gives JPMorgan Chase record fine for using WhatsApp, other unapproved methods to conduct business; and Facebook bans seven companies accused of surveillance for hire.
