Privacy Conflicts - Periodic table on Privacy

A friend of mine who knows I have been working on getting up to speed on Data Privacy and how it might or might not affect my clients, sent me the following link.

 

https://calligo.cloud/wp-content/uploads/the-periodic-table-of-data-privacy.pdf?hsCtaTracking=d1923d...

 

At first, I ignored it, until realized that it provided some very useful information to me as a security person.

 

The table modeled after chemistry periodic table is interesting but I found from a privacy/security point of view the items listed in the dark blue at the bottom to be the most interesting ( it is titled "Legislation and practices whose powers and requirements can conflict with data privacy").  

 

If we look up most of these laws/practices, we see where and how governments can force organizations to organizations to (as it were) go by-pass/eliminate all security and privacy concerns that a user might have or expect.

 

In Canada, we have PIPEDA and a number of provincial laws, but as we do business in the US, I always have to advise folk on the conditions of the Patriot Act and how it might affect them related to any tombstone data.  Similarly, we have to do this for Brazil as well and now the EU.

 

I think the authors did a great job capturing this information and anyone slightly interested in Privacy and various laws and regulations could use this.

It's an interesting conversation starter at lots of different levels. For the next version I'd love to see them make it clickable and give more details on privacy controls for each.

Elementary, my dear Diana.

It's cute, I grant you, and somebody has gone to a lot of trouble to make it fit into
the periodic table format. It's also handy (if you can read it) in terms of listing
privacy related terms and factors. (I'm pretty sure it's not exhaustive ...)

Probably the single most useful part, yes.
