In honor of National Data Privacy Day this Saturday, Jan. 28, we’ve put together a list of the 15 worst Internet privacy scandals of all time.
These high-profile privacy scandals involve many underlying technologies, from search to social media, e-mail to voice mail, mobile phones to Webcams to GPS. But at the heart of all of these privacy scandals are companies collecting personal data without the user’s knowledge or consent and then either sharing it with third parties or simply failing to keep it safe.
Read more on Computerworld and see what you think. If I had the time or energy to do my own 15 worst privacy breaches/scandals list, most of their entries would never make my list at all while some breaches that the media never paid much attention to would make my list.
