"The state, that must eradicate all feelings of insecurity, even potential ones, has been caught in a spiral of exception, suspicion and oppression that may lead to a complete disappearance of liberties." —Mireille Delmas Marty, Libertés et sûreté dans un monde dangereux, 2010 This book will examine the security/freedom duo in space and time with regards to electronic communications and technologies used in social control. It will follow a diachronic path from the relative balance between philosophy and human rights, very dear to Western civilization (at the end of the 20th Century), to the current situation, where there seems to be less freedom in terms of security to the point that some scholars have wondered whether privacy should be redefined in this era. The actors involved (the Western states, digital firms, human rights organizations etc.) have seen their roles impact the legal and political science fields.

Globalization, along with its digital and information communication technology counterparts, including the Internet and cyberspace, may signify a whole new era for human rights, characterized by new tensions, challenges, and risks for human rights, as well as new opportunities. Human Rights and Risks in the Digital Era: Globalization and the Effects of Information Technologies explores the emergence and evolution of digital rights that challenge and transform more traditional legal, political, and historical understandings of human rights. Academic and legal scholars will explore individual, national, and international democratic dilemmas--sparked by economic and environmental crises, media culture, data collection, privatization, surveillance, and security--that alter the way individuals and societies think about, regulate, and protect rights when faced with new challenges and threats. The book not only uncovers emerging changes in discussions of human rights, it proposes legal remedies and public policies to mitigate the challenges posed by new technologies and globalization.
Protection of privacy information on personal data in Indonesian is still weak. This is suspected from the still abundance of personal data of someone, including for business and political interests. There are still many companies that sell personal data without permission from the subject of data. Misuse of data when it is private that someone's privacy can be obtained by others without the permission of the subject of the data may cause harm to the subject of the data, as also conveyed by Keynote Speaker is Dr. Syahirah Abdul Shukor.

While traveling the data highway through the global village, most people, if they think about it at all, consider privacy a non-forfeitable right. They expect to have control over the ways in which their personal information is obtained, distributed, shared, and used by any other entity. According to recent surveys, privacy, and anonymity are the fundamental issues of concern for most Internet users, ranked higher than ease-of-use, spam, cost, and security. Digital Privacy: Theory, Techniques, and Practices covers state-of-the-art technologies, best practices, and research results, as well as legal, regulatory, and ethical issues. Editors Alessandro Acquisti, Stefanos Gritzalis, Costas Lambrinoudakis, and Sabrina De Capitani di Vimercati, established researchers whose work enjoys worldwide recognition, draw on contributions from experts in academia, industry, and government to delineate theoretical, technical, and practical aspects of digital privacy. They provide an up-to-date, integrated approach to privacy issues that spells out what digital privacy is and covers the threats, rights, and provisions of the legal framework in terms of technical counter measures for the protection of an individual’s privacy. The work includes coverage of protocols, mechanisms, applications, architectures, systems, and experimental studies. Even though the utilization of personal information can improve customer services, increase revenues, and lower business costs, it can be easily misused and lead to violations of privacy. Important legal, regulatory, and ethical issues have emerged, prompting the need for an urgent and consistent response by electronic societies. Currently there is no book available that combines such a wide range of privacy topics with such a stellar cast of contributors. Filling that void, Digital Privacy: Theory, Techniques, and Practices gives you the foundation for building effective and legal privacy protocols into your business processes.

Recent revelations, by Edward Snowden and others, of the vast network of government spying enabled by modern technology have raised major concerns both in the European Union and the United States on how to protect privacy in the face of increasing governmental surveillance. This book brings together some of the leading experts in the fields of constitutional law, criminal law and human rights from the US and the EU to examine the protection of privacy in the digital era, as well as the challenges that counter-terrorism cooperation between governments pose to human rights. It examines the state of privacy protections on both sides of the Atlantic, the best mechanisms for preserving privacy, and whether the EU and the US should develop joint transnational mechanisms to protect privacy on a reciprocal basis. As technology enables governments to know more and more about their citizens, and about the citizens of other nations, this volume offers critical perspectives on how best to respond to one of the most challenging developments of the twenty-first century.
