UK Embraces Big Data

November 10, 2009

The BBC reported that the UK will move forward with its monitoring system. The idea is to treat communications as a dataspace. You can read the story “UK Surveillance Plan to Go Ahead” to get the details. In my opinion, the UK is getting into big data. The interest aspect of this surveillance plan is not addressed in the write up. My question is, “Who will provide the data processing services for these data?” My thought is that a company like Google might one option. Microsoft, in my opinion, does not have the dataspace technology in as mature a form as does Google.

    This over-surveillance is also a threat to Business.

    As I have said before, it is most likely that large International Companies, are becoming increasingly aware that all of their Business Transmissions through the UK are at risk, and important contracts may well be in jeopardy due to interception.

    There is also the fact that UK’s Big Brother may find he has an even Bigger Brother watching him. This surveillance and Data Collection Technology may already be being used by Counter Intelligence Services from other counties.

    As already disclosed many times via the media, the Data the Government does have is very loosely guarded. Laptops left in public places, CD discs, DVD Discs, and Pen Drives left in public places.

    To cap it all they still want to store more of our private and personal data.

    British National Security is becoming a bad joke at our expense.
