Protection of our Data
Enact effective data protection
to safeguard our privacy, security and freedom
Current data protection is insufficient in an Internet of Bodies and Things scenario in which all devices are collecting our data 24/7, to be processed as Big Data by artificial intelligence which has been proven to reproduce and aggravate discrimination. It is also extremely concerning that 70% of investment in 5G is in surveillance systems, including facial recognition cameras and drones.
Five proposals to implement in EU law:
Launch an impact assessment of the effects of 5G, including connected objects and bodies, on personal data protection and evaluate compliance against current data protection laws
Protect citizens against the increasing vulnerability to cybercrime by applying the principle of data minimization to collection via wireless (such as medical and banking data).
Ensure the European Data Protection Board fight actively and independently against discrimination and digital rights violations.
Require each citizen’s explicit consent in order to subject their data to any automated procedure.
Organize public debates whether or to what extent to authorise digital innovations led by scientists with biomedical expertise and who are free from conflicts of interest: appoint new ethics committee or expand EGE's activities.
