People think that the things that they are doing and consider the one that as their most private secrets has been recorded as one in the crores of data across the world. I would like to say that nothing is private in the modern world and none can escape from the big boss. We would have seen the show Big Boss in the televisions in which all the actions of the contents are watched and telecasted. Even in the real world we do live in such circumstance. Someone have their eyes on every one of us and each and every action has been recorded. By watching us what could they gain? In the emerging world what would be the most precious thing a car, a palace, or crores of money. If you think something above then you are wrong, the most precious thing in the world will be data. Millions of data is being transferred
MNC’s role at the backend
Many multinational companies are spending millions of dollars to our data. For example if you are obese, that single data is enough, they will make you to buy everything from jogging shoes, T-shirts, exercise equipments to obese control medicines and foreign diet drinks and shrink your income. If you take on your smart phone and make a discussion with your friend in whatsapp regarding buying a new shoe then in the next two or three days your fb page would be filled with advertisements of shoes. And that’s where a single data plays it major role. It just shrinks your market and makes you to buy products from a single company and its partner companies. Thus you are trapped in a endless loop. It’s the correct time that everyone should get aware and break up the loop and come out to the wide world.
Like this every company is gathering our information, and on the outer perspective view of the people they think that every company is the enemy and competitor of the other but they do share these data among themselves. And I do say these with an evidence from the Forbes magazine “All the business hanging out all around the world are controlled by just 147 multinational companies and those 147 companies are owned by only 4 different personalities” and this is quite shocking to me.
Third Party Invaders
The situation gets even worse when the other most brilliant third party of hackers enter into the clash. The data stolen from common people is insecure even when a billion dollar firewall is around them. The citizen’s data can be misused if it goes under the hands of the hackers. It leads into the catastrophe. Even in the last December Silicon Valley revolutionist Yahoo Company’s announcement “The data of 1 million yahoo users has been stolen” had shook the world. And by those data money has been stolen from many bank accounts. And coming into the latest fact through the virus Ransom ware, many leading companies have been hacked. When these corporate are taking our data what do the governments in the world doing?
Government under the Big Boss
The Government too is playing its role in these matters and getting its hands dirty. The Government doesn’t take actions against these corporate because they do ask for data from them. If someone reveals the truth to the people the government will hunt them down. Edward Snowden, most of us could forget his name. He who revealed the America’s spying all over the world is being searched even now to be hunted. The government should pay respect for the citizen’s private details. It doesn’t stops in America Indian government has got its hands in it.
Edward Joseph Snowden (born June 21, 1983) is an American computer professional, former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) employee, and former contractor for the United States government who copied and leaked classified information from the National Security Agency (NSA) in 2013 without authorization. His disclosures revealed numerous global surveillance programs, many run by the NSA and the Five Eyes Intelligence Alliance with the cooperation of telecommunication companies and European governments.
In 2013, Snowden was hired by an NSA contractor, Booz Allen Hamilton, after previous employment with Dell and the CIA. On May 20, 2013, Snowden flew to Hong Kong after leaving his job at an NSA facility in Hawaii, and in early June he revealed thousands of classified NSA documents to journalists Glenn Greenwald, Laura Poitras, and Ewen MacAskill. Snowden came to international attention after stories based on the material appeared in The Guardian and The Washington Post. Further disclosures were made by other publications including Der Spiegel and The New York Times.
On June 21, 2013, the U.S. Department of Justice unsealed charges against Snowden of two counts of violating the Espionage Act of 1917 and theft of government property. Two days later, he flew into Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport, but Russian authorities noted that his U.S. passport had been cancelled and he was restricted to the airport terminal for over one month. Russia ultimately granted him right of asylum for one year, and repeated extensions have permitted him to stay at least until 2020. He reportedly lives in an undisclosed location in Moscow, and continues to seek asylum elsewhere in the world.
A subject of controversy, Snowden has been variously called a hero, a whistleblower, a dissident, a traitor and a patriot. His disclosures have fueled debates over mass surveillance, government secrecy, and the balance between national security and information privacy.
All the other developed developing countries in the world got adapted to this concept quickly. Their main source is the social network, and search sites. America is getting its citizen’s data mostly from facebook, Google, Yahoo and so on known social sites. Last year the government of India requested Google, Yahoo, Skype and Facebook to keep their data centers at India to spy its citizens. And shockingly next to America, India holds the second spot in getting information from facebook. According to Forbes, in the year 2017, Indian government has requested for the details of nearly 9000 facebook accounts. You are safe until your posts are not anti-national. The Indian government has laid a department named “National Cyber Co-ordination Center” to continuously watch our activities
The modern world is aware of CCTV’s. The Government too needs the help of these to watch people. The developed countries have their CCTV culture since 1950. It reached its peak during 1990. The Britain which has only 1% of the world’s population has 20% of the world’s CCTV cameras. It has a CCTV camera for every 14 citizens in the country. The second most watched city in the world is Beijing followed by Chicago and New York of America. India’s CCTV capital is Surat. These cameras help in most of the cases and has reduced the crime rate by half. However by installing this, the privacy of the common people has been erupted.
The mighty Aadhar
In a vast country like India in which the CCTV culture is still under developing stage, the system of aadhar card can be a good solution. The system was mainly formed to spot the terrorists and intruders in our country. The aadhar card system might be helpful to keep track of the citizens and easily be a solution to unsolvable crimes. The government had made mandatory to link the aadhar card with gas card, bank accounts, sim cards, passports, ration cards, pensioner’s card, and the list goes on. But looking on the other side, if the card goes to the hands of wrong people, it ends up in a total devastation. They can get every single data of us from an aadhar card.
The personal details of nearly 1.5 million pensioners of Jharkhand, including Aadhar card details, bank account details, and more, have been made public on a state website of social security. According to a report by the Hindustan Times, a programming error has made public the personal details and sensitive information of over 1 million pensioners. The report says there are about 1.6 million pensioners in the state and 1.4 million have linked their bank account with their Aadhar numbers to get direct benefits of subsidies.
The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) recently said that it had blacklisted 35,000 agencies for not maintaining standards. The Minister said the agencies were blacklisted for “polluting” the UIDAI ecosystem. In fact, the government claims it has blacklisted 1,000 operators since December 2016, and one more for making the personal details and Aadhar number of former Indian Cricket Team captain MS Dhoni public on Twitter.
The mobile network that brought a revolution in the digital market, Jio is also being involved in these activities. My statement is that people is giving away their own personal data for free data. Reliance Jio consumer data has been posted online by a website named magicapk.com. While the site is now offline, Reliance Jio has said a probe is on into the incident and assured users that the data leaked and posted online was “unauthentic”. However as Fonearena.com, which first reported the breach, and indianexpress.com have seen, the data on the website did give back accurate results for name, number, emails, activation date, and circle. But we could not see the Aadhar data for our number.
The creamy plays
On looking on a overall view on the world history we could conclude that, the authorities on the power with wealth on the creamy layer of the society has brought up the concept of spying and watching on others. But on the modern world in the digital Era make the people give up their details willingly on social media they psychologically think not much deeper to the authorities with power and wealth. On future there may be a situation that anyone can look into others easily.
The Big boss is everywhere but we don’t actually look everything on that perspective. Someone is watching us on every moment. They are controlling us either directly or indirectly. They seed their ideas into our minds and make us to do it through inception. Inception has become quite common today. There must be some way to stop these. There must be some way so that the people might get their freedom that they don’t even think about it. Everyone should look over himself. The big boss can be stopped only if they change their way. So people are careful about your actions. You are safe until you post or tweet is not against the government. Respect the freedom of people and let them live in their way.
