‘We built two data centers in the middle of the pandemic’

At the end of July this year, after nearly five months of pandemic-induced restrictions, the team building two new data centers to underpin public services in the state of Guernsey finished the project. And, despite the additional complications caused by COVID-19, the team was only two weeks behind the original schedule – that is, the timeline that was mapped out pre-pandemic, in September last year – and the build remained within budget. 

The success of the project, less exciting but equally as effective, came down to plain good-old planning, maintains Colin Harvey, transformation director at Guernsey’s technology partner Agilisys – albeit to another degree than your average weekly to-do list.

“We went down to a ridiculous degree of detail in our planning in terms of not only the activities that everybody had to do, but also the risk in health and safety impacts,” he tells ZDNet.

Under Trump, the US is paying closer attention to deals involving data

  • The Trump administration’s scrutiny of TikTok may be drawing an unusual amount of press attention, but it’s part of a larger trend.
  • US officials have been paying increasing attention to who controls critical technologies and data on American citizens.
  • The governmental group examining TikTok has already blocked other deals involving Chinese companies gaining control of US technology or data and is now mandated to scrutinize any such investments or acquisitions. 
  • But the US is just one among a growing number of countries starting to focus on control of data and technology, and ByteDance likely won’t be the last to be caught in the middle of conflicting demands, international trade experts said.

The Trump administration’s hardline stance against ByteDance and TikTok has turned into something of a public spectacle, which is unusual when it comes to government scrutiny of deals for national security concerns.

Council Post: Personal Data: Privacy Vs. Compensation

Chairman and CEO, Permission.io.

What is the value of your personal data?

There is no simple answer. Most likely, nobody pays you a dime to use your personal data, so its financial value may seem quite small to you. However, it surely has value to others.

Consider the typical Facebook account. In 2019, Facebook harvested $29.95 billion in net U.S. ad revenue from about 231 million North American users. That works out to about $130 profit per U.S. user. Google and Amazon probably made as much — if not more — from your data, and that is just revenue from digital advertising and retail.

Federal, state and local governments collect and store your data in the form of demographic information, motor vehicle and driving data, professional and recreational licenses, voter registration records, and court records. Some of it also gets sold. For example, the state of California makes

Chinese firm collects data of US leaders, military

Social media and other online data on both prominent Americans and the U.S. military has been collected since 2017 by a Chinese technology company that purportedly markets itself to clients in the country’s military, government and commercial sector.

The findings follow the retrieval of a copy of Shenzhen Zhenhua Data Technology’s database by an Australian cybersecurity firm that found it unsecured on the Internet, according to  a Monday report in The Washington Post.

US UPDATES CHINA TRAVEL ADVISORY OVER CORONAVIRUS

The data cache, called the Overseas Key Information Database, allegedly offers insights into more than 2 million foreign political, military, and business leaders — including at least 50,000 Americans.

It also provides details regarding countries’ infrastructure, military deployments, and public opinion analysis.

Although there is no evidence showing that the software is currently used by the Chinese government, The Post noted that documents from Zhenhua identify the company as patriotic,
