Privacy Gets Physical

Privacy Gets Physical

(p.59) 3 Privacy Gets Physical
The Internet in Everything

Laura DeNardis

Yale University Press

This chapter addresses the critical area of cyber-physical system privacy. Cyber-physical system privacy concerns encroach into intimate spaces in and around the body and in material spaces of industry, the home and society that were once distinctly bounded from the digital sphere. Privacy problems are also concerns about discrimination, such as using collected data for employment, insurance, and law enforcement decisions. Privacy problems in digital-physical spaces also raise a host of national security concerns. The chapter then explains some of the constraints that complicate privacy and recommends a baseline privacy-protection framework to address this extraordinary policy challenge. Transparency and notice to consumers about data gathering and sharing practices should represent absolute minimal standards of practice. But even this minimal standard is difficult to attain.

Keywords:   cyber-physical systems, privacy, discrimination, data collection, digital-physical spaces, national security, privacy-protection framework, transparency, data gathering, data sharing
