medical times; font-size: 16px;”>Ever since Google and Facebook entered our lives, nurse and especially since we starting using smartphones, it looks like private, personal information and details that hands.privacyonly we know about ourselves no longer exist. Our age, moods, everything about us will reach other interested parties sooner or later – probably through smartphones or other gadgets that turn up once in a while. At this point the question is no longer “will the information reach someone else,” it’s “who will it reach.” Which of these interested parties can we actually trust?

According to a recent international survey published by EMC users seem to find sharing their information with private companies relatively disturbing, but tend to rely on government organizations when it comes to using that information. These findings are similar to those of a similar survey held in Israel in 2009 by the ministry of justice. Is there a justification for these tendencies? According to attorney Dan Hay, an expert in communications and technology legislation, there might not be any.

“People think that if their information is in the government’s hands it must be somehow safer, and that’s not necessarily true,” explained Hay in an interview with iHLS. “Unfortunately, past experience shows that government offices had many more information leaks compared to the private sector, with people on the inside being responsible for the leaks. I think citizens should be more concerned when the government has that information. While a commercial organization has a reputation to uphold the government really has nothing to lose.”
