Slide 1 - CCTV
- Before focusing on our two features of surveillance
we decided to look into the threats associated with
mass surveillance. Starting with CCTV.
- The UK has the more CCTV Cameras than any
other European country.
- 1 camera for every 14 people in London, resulting in
a total of about 422, 000 cameras.
- Evidence of your movements can be held for a
Slide 2 - NSA
- Gathered personal data from thousands of
individuals using government technology requesting
the personal information from organisations that
hold peoples personal information.
- By using there power and influence they gained
access to emails, chat logs, stored data and social
- With access to all these companies and
information there is no wonder there are concerns
over surveillance and personal information.
Slide 3 - ACTA
- Anti Counterfeiting Trade Agreement
- Agreement aimed o establish an international
legal framework for internet targeting file sharing
and other goods that infringe copyrights.
- Issues arose when concerns were raised with
constant monitoring of file sharing imoeeding on
basic human rights and privacy.
Slide 4 - SOPA
- Stop Online Piracy Act
- The ACTA bill has taken many forms in the past, Stop
Online Piracy Act was a legislation to stop the act of online
- Again opponents to the bill claimed it threatens free
speech and privacy, it would block access to certain sites.
- People and internet users strongly against surveillance
took part in a huge black out at various sites. For example
Google and Wikipeadia blocked access to their sites to raise
- Largest online protest in history.
Slide 5 - PIPA
- Protect Intellectual Property Act
- PIPA was a proposed law for online monitoring of
personal intellectual property.
- A rewrite of the Combat Online Infringement and
Counterfeit Act, which failed to pass in 2010.
- PIPA is the first of the three bills we’ve discussed to
cause online upheaval.
- SOPA and PIPA are closely related to each other. And
both were an attempt to widen America’s grasp over online
Slide 6 - Web 2.0
- Web 2.0 is a concept rather than an actual update
- The concept of multiple devices working together
seamlessly and in real time, narrowing the grasp
between people and countries alike.
- Both beneficial and problematic when concerns
about surveillance are raised.
Slide 7 - Issues
- Constant tracking
- Any one with a smart device, ability and know
how can find personal information about others
who have willingly or not put the information out. -
Links to NSA
- People are always being profiled whether they
know it or not.
- People with ignorance to this, such as
uploading personal information, location tagging
practically digitalising a map of their life.
Slide 8 - Positives
- Web 2.0 idea has benefited public services like the
police force and hospitals with crime solving, missing
peoples and finding person info.
- Nothing major can happen without the world finding
out, EG. Ukrainian Revolution
- Access to information about countries and world news
awe now driving this digital age
- Can transform the smallest person into a celebrity within
a day, but can also have the opposite effect and expose or
end the careers of corrupt individuals with one fail swoop.
Slide 9 - Global Village
- Being closer together, narrowing the gap between
countries and people
- places like reddit, apps like instagram driving a
new era of user created media and content, shared
the world over, on the go social media keeping us
Slide 10 - Global Village
- We see the global village as part of the web 2.0
ideal. Bringing us closer together is again a threat to
persona security and new media not only gives way
for new content but also new scams and viruses.
- We need to stay vigilant with what we use. Not that
it matters much since we are all being monitored
Slide 11 - Smart Phone Surveillance
- With growing development in technology
surveillance is able to take new forms, sometimes
unrecognisable to users.
- Majority of people now have smart phones which
are capable of taking all sorts of data and personal
information and uploading it for the word to see. - eg
FaceBook, Flicker, PlaceMe
Slide 12 - About PlaceMe
- Described as both the scariest and amazingly
- PlaceMe tracks your activities, locations and
environment. And can give suggestions to your daily
routine simply by recording everything in the
background of your smart phone.
Slide 13 - Scariest
- The technology records everything about your
day-to-day life; where you shop, where you
work, what routes you take, location
tagging, spending, what activities you get up to.
- Although the app ensures that data is not
broadcasted and is encrypted, events like the NSA
scandal may put people of an app that records so
much about their life.
- The app is arguably the most pervasive type of
mobile software to date.
Slide 14 - Amazingly Futuristic
- If you can get past the fact this app will learn
basically all it can about you there is huge potential
for what it will be able to do in the future; check for
routes to and from work, re-routing depending on the
traffic that day and other factors and even check
wheres cheapest for petrol when you pull in to a
- - It will act as a personal assistant making daily
activities a lot easier for the user.
Slide 15 - Overview
- Surveillance is a growing part of life, it is likely to
become more acceptable in society in the form of
apps and other fems of technology, as it is
something younger generations are growing up with
as part of normal life.
- Yet users of this technology should not worry
about authorities finding this information is they have
not done anything wrong/ illegal. The concern should
be if this information is hacked by another source
which is a hard task
