  • Don't Bug my Computer!
    malware on computers or even on computer networks such as an office building or an entire telephone exchange makes us all less safe It means that the technology we use every day would be made less secure and more prone to attack from cyber criminals Our devices must be kept secure We store so much personal information on our computers personal emails online bank accounts online shopping accounts family photos text messages confidential work documents etc None of this would be safe from leaks and hacks if the Police can order your broadband provider to disable security 2 Your internet history will be accessible to the Police without a warrant The Police could look up every website you ve visited in the last year That will be hugely revealing of who you are The Police won t even need a warrant to access this information enabling them to go on fishing expeditions Your broadband provider does not want to store this information about you partly because of how difficult it will be and partly because they know they can never guarantee it won t get leaked or hacked 3 No one will tell you this is happening Your broadband provider will be gagged from telling you that they are having to comply with the Police s demands Even if you are their customer and even if you re not suspected of any crime whatsoever 4 Increased cost reduced safety The Government has no idea of the cost A recent estimate was 1 2 billion or more than seven times the highest Home Office estimate This cost could be passed to you and would mean higher broadband and mobile phone bills You will be paying for the Police to spy on you With this money they could employ 3 000 more

    dogged investigative reporting from Duncan Campbell Nicky Hager and James Bamford have been trying to uncover the extent of the arrangement for years Now thanks to Edward Snowden the public are able to understand more of the spying that is being done in our name than ever before Challenging global surveillance legal frameworks Human rights obligations apply to all individuals subject to a State s jurisdiction The obligation to respect privacy extends to the privacy of all communications so that the physical location of the individual may be in a different jurisdiction to that where the interference with the right occurs But many global surveillance practices are fundamentally opposed to the rule of law and to the well established international human right to privacy Governments have carefully constructed legal frameworks that provide differing levels of protections for internal versus external communications or those relating to nationals versus non nationals attempt to circumvent national constitutional or human rights protections governing interferences with the right to privacy of communications We must break down legal frameworks that obscure the activities of the intelligence agencies or that preference the citizens or residents of Five Eyes countries over the global internet population Bringing intelligence agencies under rule of law The Five Eyes agencies are playing a dirty game not content with following the already permissive legal processes under which they operate they ve found ways to infiltrate all aspects of modern communications networks All of their actions have been justified in secret on the basis of secret interpretations of law and classified agreements By remaining in the shadows our intelligence agencies and the governments who control them have removed our ability to challenge their actions and their impact upon our human rights We cannot hold our governments accountable when their actions are obfuscated through secret

    privacy within international human rights bodies and encouraging wider recognition of surveillance as a human rights issue The right to privacy has long been neglected by the United Nations human rights mechanisms To change this situation we engage with and inform international policy and review processes including within UN human rights mechanisms Key actions in this area include our campaign for the creation of a United Nations Special Rapporteur on Privacy and continuing work to promote the International Principles on the Application of Human Rights to Communications Surveillance whose development Privacy International led Holding corporate actors that facilitate surveillance to human rights standards The private surveillance industry operates in the absence of appropriate safeguards to prevent rights abuses As part of our work to bring the industry out of the shadows and expose its practices we examine the industry s compliance with human rights standards and the role other corporate actors play in facilitating surveillance The UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights lay out a framework for the corporate responsibility to respect human rights the duty of every country to protect individuals from abuses by business and other third parties and the need for access to appropriate remedies
