«Digital Sheep». Who Has the Right to «Digital Wool»?
The process of digitalization runs parallel with the globalization, bringing more and more data to the international interaction.
Digital duplicates, digital passports, wallets and medical records – the more consumers go online, the greater the risk for their data and possibly for themselves. The «digital footprint» that we leave, collects, processes and transmits by an increasing number of organizations and communities – there are too many of them and they are not always controlled.
At the same time, we see that the processes of abandoning IT, as well as digital products and media, are developing with renewed vigor. In some areas, there is even a moratorium on major technology companies collaboration with government. Are there any boundaries of what is necessary and what is allowed in this field of dynamic changes? Where and how to find a balance between growth and security?
● Who should the data belong to?
● Privacy or "digital wool" (data): what is the new meaning of people's existence for countries and corporations?
● Who, how and with which tools should regulate the process of collecting, processing and protecting personal data?
● What is the greatest threat: digital suboptimality or human stupidity?
● Digital world: a world without borders and black zones, or an endless polygon of digital manipulation?
● Digital world of the future: are there any limitations?
● Are we waiting for the reverse evolution and renaissance of analog services as opposed to «average» digital solutions?
