Christopher Parsons on social media surveillance

2014-12-09 20:50

Christopher Parsons spoke to CBC Radio’s Q program to discuss the Canadian government’s growing interest in the real-time contents of social media and the degree to which they’re monitoring hashtags and online conversations.

This month, Christopher Parsons also spoke to the Washington Post regarding Uber’s rider database. The company has faced criticism on the amount of user data it collects. Its rider database, for instance, contains daily travel information of its users and can be used to display the movements of riders in real-time. When contacted by the Post, Uber declined to discuss its data protection policies. As such, to date, it is not clear if the company has instituted “cyber-security protections on par with the sensitivity of the data it collects.”
