Collect Open Data is hacking?

M-am oprit la un articol publicat pe defenseone.com, zilele acestea: “The Military Is Already Using Facebook to Track Your Mood”, scris de Patrick Tucker.

As spune doar ca directorul DIA afirma ceva destul de diferit: acesta nu este un experiment, ci o practica – prelucrarea datelor publice. În cazul în care cineva nu-și vrea datele cu caracter personal prelucrate, el sau ea nu ar trebui să posteze pe internet! Acest lucru este, desigur, valabil si pentru LinkedIn, sau alte rețele de socializare: nu este nevoie de hacking a site-ului pentru colectarea datelor.

Bogăția de date Open Source este enorma și a explodat odată cu creșterea internetului. Dar chiar și înainte agențiile, s-au folosit de mulțimea de date Open Source. Cine nu a auzit de dumbfounding? De asemenea, sursele deschise de date sunt actualizate în mod frecvent printr-un singur “Search”.

Interesant:

“Critics have targeted a recent study on how emotions spread on the popular social network site Facebook, complaining that some 600,000 Facebook users did not know that they were taking part in an experiment. Somewhat more disturbing, the researchers deliberately manipulated users’ feelings to measure an effect called emotional contagion.

Defense One recently caught up with Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, the director of the Defense Intelligence Agency who said the U.S. military has “completely revamped” the way it collects intelligence around the existence of large, openly available data sources and especially social media like Facebook. “The information that we’re able to extract form social media — it’s giving us insights that frankly we never had before,” he said.

In other words, the head of one of the biggest U.S. military intelligence agencies needs you on Facebook.

“Just over a decade ago, when I was a senior intelligence officer, I spent most of my time in the world of ‘ints’ — signals intelligence imagery, human intelligence — and used just a little bit of open-source information to enrich the assessments that we made. Fast forward to 2014 and the explosion of the information environment in just the last few years alone. Open-source now is a place I spend most of my time. The open world of information provides us most of what we need and the ‘ints’ of old, they enrich the assessments that we’re able to make from open-source information.”
