Privacy Tip #306 – Quick Read on Data Privacy Issues in 2020

I’m on vacation this week, and while most people read novels while on vacation, I catch up on data privacy articles and publications that I have set aside and haven’t had a chance to read. I just finished one that I thought was a quick and good summary of current data privacy issues entitled 5 Important Data Privacy Issues for 2020 by Zach Capers of GetApp.

The five issues he outlines are: 1) Hashing out the encryption debate; 2) Facial recognition attracting scrutiny; 3) Location tracking leading to concerns; 4) Watching out for smart surveillance tech; and 5) Enactment of new data privacy laws.

I won’t steal his thunder on telling you the rest—take a look yourself. It is a good, quick summary of these thorny issues to get you thinking so you’ll delve deeper into them. The article can be accessed here.
