Tuesday 1G

Convener: Aestetix

Notes-taker: Kris Alman

Discussion notes, key understandings, outstanding questions, observations, and, if appropriate to this discussion: action items, next steps:

Local level efforts to address issues of surveillance

Domain awareness Center http://oaklandwiki.org <oaklandwiki.org> in Oakland; central headquarters of camera data; no notes without reasonable suspicion; good policy with constraints yet demonstrating continued crime reduction (drugs, homicides); City of Oakland continues to want to get money from DHS…

2009 DHS went to Oakland for surveillance center (which is bigger center than SFO); city of Oakland in addition to port of Oakland. Who gets access to recordings? Ad hoc privacy committee created for writing a privacy policy. Potential this can serve as model public policy. Scope and purpose: emergencies. Recognition that the scope will likely expand. The city of Austin is working on something similar. NYC and Boston have identital policies. Vidsys contracted to do surveillance; set up feeds

Binney’s thin thread a model.

Surveillance: Commercial tracking vs governmental tracking; but government is using back door to data (e.g. google clouds overseas) 18 USC1030-CFA2703d

Different democratic process for the two; corporate surveillance is “opt in”; labeling is helpful for latter; EFF sends updates to privacy changes; the Acxioms and Facebooks can’t be reined in; difference between data collection and data shared;

Identity: User profile

You: Issues of transparency

Recommended policies: Ad hoc citizens committee with privacy officer to be appointed and whistleblower ordinance that allows it to be ok (so far only one person that can get information); references to fair information practices; requirements for audit;

Data (video stream) v information (a bookmark): both can be seen as metadata

Q as to how federal laws take precedence; data sharing policies come into; question of data ownership; only data have jurisdiction of is the bookmarks; videos not stored by city; data retention records act for CA. 2 years for Port of Oakland. No facial recognition. An officer is monitoring. Can remediate if feel wrongly identified—which means you only hear that you are recorded when there is a lawsuit.
