Privacy and cybersecurity 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 online security, often without our situational awareness. Four highlights from this week: Report – Hidden Harms: The Misleading Promise of Monitoring Students Online; Meta, US hospitals sued for using healthcare data to target ads; All software is guilty until proven innocent; and Twitter Faces A Surge In Account Data Requests By Governments.
