Quotations for Consideration

“The internet is a worldwide platform for sharing information. It is a community of common interests. No country is immune to such global challenged as cybercrime, hacking and invasion of privacy. There is no way we can be completely out of it, but there are several things we can do to avoid complete transparency. Allowing the effective sharing of data while safeguarding personally identifiable or other confidential information is the real challenge. Visibility on the Internet is both good and bad. It allows easy transactions and exchange of information, but blurs the very idea of privacy. Also, the protection of privacy is of no use if Internet ethics are put at stake.”Lu Wei

“Privacy on the internet? That’s an Oxymoron.”Catherine Butler

“In a world where everyone shows and tells everything, I value discretion and privacy.”Sonya Tecial

“Discretion is knowing how to hide that which we cannot remedy.”Anon

“Relying on the Government to protect your privacy is like asking a ’Peeping Tom’ to build your window blinds.”John Parry Barlow

“Putting data security at the centre of digital business strategies is the key to improving trust and digital growth.”Steve Woods
