Final Presentation

So how are we going to prepare the final presentation? I was thinking about the structure and I wonder if it could be something like this:

  • Intro - short descriptions of the both books
  • Privacy & Security: describe these and other most important concepts concerning the books. The survey results could also be here.

- Basic thoughts from Nothing to hide - Technical aspects of what actually can be done with the data that is gathered from us - Example in form of the survey, some results tied to the presentation (Juho will work on this)

  • Why are these things important?: why privacy is valuable, why these things need attention and whats currently wrong with the “system”.

- Principles / Ethics - Potential dangers and benefits ?

  • What to do?: What each and everyone can too to preserve privacy. Most important thing is probably to spread the knowledge.

And about the EU legislation homework: This seems to be pretty good source.

EU's Data Protection Directive: http://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/en/TXT/?uri=CELEX:31995L0046

Maybe we could use this as a workspace to design the slides: Final Presentation

- Niko L

Juho: Added some thoughts on the parts

Joonas: Added link to EU-DPD and presentation workspace

Hieu: I added a part Facts and Figures: we will tell some numbers (like CCTVs number, Facebook data collection, etc.) to tell how we are watched nowadays.

Juho:Definitely, good idea to use one workspace to make the presentation. I will personally work mostly on the statistics and making a slide out of it on monday.

Rohan: I added the EU legislation on data and privacy topic in the presentation as well because we need to present that to the other groups. I can take up this slide/topic, and work on it from Monday. Others can join me as well…

Niko: Nice additions from everyone. Thought I'm a bit afraid that if we had that many “main points” our presentation would be a bit dull and hard to follow, so I re-arranged the presentation a bit. I think that it would be better to have just a couple of main sections and then all the topics discussed here could be sub-topics. Is this okay for everyone?

Jiri: Here is a link for the Finnish privacy legislation (written in Finnish ofc): http://www.finlex.fi/fi/laki/ajantasa/1999/19990523

Joonas: The main points of the presentation are good but the “Why should I care”-section seemed a bit confusing to me. I mean, the “facts & figures” and “data collection and usage” are probably gonna overlap so we could combine those under a single title. Also, the “principles & ethics” seemed a bit out of place there. Maybe that could be somehow included in the outcomes of D&G. We can replace it with that survey of ours showing that people actually do care about privacy to some degree even though they say they have nothing to hide. What do you think?

Jarkko: Should we meet on 26.04 and look the presentation as a group? If nobody opposes I could talk about the conlusions on both books? (I can present about pretty much anything). Ps. We had 30 minutes for our group, was that right?

Niko: Meeting would probably be a good idea if we could find a suitable time. How about 12:00 tomorrow?

Rohan: How about we split the tasks more definitively here and do them, and then meet? For example,

  • Intro - Joonas
  • Outcomes from NTH - Jiri
  • Outcomes from D&G - Jiri
  • EU Legislation Concerning Data & Privacy - Tuomo
  • Data Collection & Usage - Facts & Figures - <your_name(s)_here>
  • Privacy Survey - Juho Juvani
  • What can I do about it? - Rohan
  • …and so on…

Tuomo Rohan, I'm also summing the EU legislation part at the moment, just noticed that you're planning to work on it too :) I'll soon make the slides, it will be a few slides

Juho: This seems good and solid. I agree, meeting to finalize / give last thoughts and discuss in my opinion is necessary. I am good with 12.00 , if all others are. We have to go through our required assignments, and also mark down the points for the group, though some already discussed that after the last meeting, but we'll make sure to discuss together all of us. If there's anything missing or we want to touch up on something, we can easily and fast do it together.

Rohan: @Tuomo: If you are doing the EU legislation part, I will take up something else. I don't think we will need so many slides on the same topic. I will take up the 'What can I do about it?' part. About the meeting, I'm okay with meeting tomorrow at 12.

Tuomo Rohan: ok, that works. Meeting at 12 is good.

Joonas: I can write the intro part. I was thinking it could give a small summary of both books, like what they are about because other groups don't know that (except group 2 who also read NTH). Also, 12:00 is ok for me as well. Maybe we could figure out the outcomes from the books in the meeting so everybody can agree on them?

Niko: Okay so we'll meet tomorrow at 12 in let's say LUT's main hallway and we'll move on from there? I can work on the “principles & ethics” part. I think that it can be included either into “Why should I care” (I had it originally in there because I think that “You should care because privacy is a human right and it is currently being violated quite openly”, but maybe that's just my idealistic thinking ;) ) or into “Privacy & Security. We can decide on that tomorrow too.

Jarkko: Okay, I think we should use the online presentation for tomorrow so it would have all the latest changes to it, so no offline version preferred.'

Juho: I edited and posted a bit more clearer listing of our decision on the points. Hopefully that is as it should be now. And yes, we should use the link we have here, and if someone can put it on the first page for our “final presentation” in the evening, then that would be great. That way we'll have final version. Let us say, unless we find clear mistakes, that midnight is deadline for any normal changes so we'll have no unexpected surprises. That way we'll have final version that we can link in the appropriate place for Final Presentation.

Niko: Okay, I did my slide and added some images for a comic relief. Hope I didn't over do it… ;) Midnight is okay as a deadline.

Joonas: Changed the Final Presentation link on the front page to PDF-version because the link may expire at some point.

Survey on privacy and privacy level understanding - The group will generate a survey on privacy understanding (like “I have nothing to hide” approach), execute the survey and report the results. Group should have at least 60 answers to the survey. Please collect appropriate background information so that you may do some analysis of the results.

I am intending to create an online survey that I can present to an online community, and what I would ask is that we come up with appropriate questions and the range of information we need to gather from each individual. Their age groups, nationality, etc.

Provide any suggestions here and we'll gather the questions here so I can duly put it up before next presentation days.

- Juho J

Thanks for the initiative Juho. My suggestions for the survey would be as follows, As you said before, we should ask for their age, nationality, but also their gender and level of education. I think this will give us a higher level of understanding. Some questions for the survey can be,

Do you think your personal data on the internet is private? (Yes/No) (to see if people assume that their data is private or not)

Is it true that you have nothing to hide? (Yes/No)

Are you willing to make your private digital life public if doing so protects you from physical harm (ex. from terrorists)? (Yes/No)

Does it affect you in any way if you know that 'you're being watched'? (Yes/No) If 'Yes', then how?

. . .

- Rohan D

Ok. Here are some ideas for the questions:

How important it is that you're controlling what data is collected about you and who is collecting it? (on scale 1-5)

Are you worried about 3rd parties, such as advertising companies, getting access to your personal data? (yes/no)

To expand Rohan's last question –> Which of the following actions have you took in order to protect your privacy online? (yes/no to all)

  • Given false information about yourself, e.g. when creating social media account
  • Installed privacy protecting plugins to your browser, e.g. DoNotTrackMe
  • Cleared browser history/cookies/cache for privacy purposes
  • Used the private browsing mode on your browser
  • Avoided uploading photos you've taken online
  • Used proxy servers, Tor-network or other anonymous networks
  • Encrypted your emails or other messages
  • Changed your passwords regularly

How would you value the privacy of the following information online? (on scale 1-5)

  • Your real name
  • Your birth date
  • Your social security number
  • Your health records
  • Your bank records
  • Your relationship status
  • Your political beliefs
  • Your religious beliefs

===== Proposed final format for survey =====

I am putting here a kind of initial format that anyone can edit or make changes to, or suggest changes. I will look into it bit more in few days and during this coming week, I will put it up. It can also be used, if need be, to get results from friends / family / others in your personal life if you want and before the 14th we would hopefully have some statistics to put together. - Juho J

Update 5.4.2016: I will be putting this together and online on thursday. - Juho J

Update 8.4.2016: I had a delay in my schedule and was away for couple of days, most of the time, so I didn't have time to put this together. I will do it tonight and it'll be put up on Saturday morning. I will then put link here as well. - Juho J

Do you feel like you have nothing to hide?

Are you willing to sacrifice your privacy if it can contribute to security, whether it is national or personal? (Yes / No / Only if national / only if personal)
