We’re on track in the Data Supercluster for an exciting Expo event. Check out the details at the NIST GCTC Expo web site and sign up. Its free to attend, but you must register.
Recent work at the US National Congressional level to ‘establish duties for online service providers with respect to end-user data that such providers collect and use’.
Consider the statement by Facebook: you “own all of the contact and information you post on Facebook” and “can control how it is shared.” Do you? The statement implies Facebook enacts how you’d like to share your data on your behalf – they have primary control over how your data is shared. Does this imply accountability on Facebook’s part? How is that measured? Proven? Are derivative data defined? Do you control derived data on your interaction with Social Media companies?

This Article examines what we term “regulatory entrepreneurship” — pursuing a line of business in which changing the law is a significant part of the business plan. Regulatory entrepreneurship is not new, but it has become increasingly salient in recent years as companies from Airbnb to Tesla, and from DraftKings to Uber, have become agents of legal change. We document the tactics that companies have employed, including operating in legal gray areas, growing “too big to ban,” and mobilizing users for political support. Further, we theorize the business and law related factors that foster regulatory entrepreneurship.
Google and other high profile businesses are equipping their employees with hardware authentication devices. The section of our blueprint deal with accounting, account settlements and assuring long-term access to data points to recent developments in strong authentication.
We are exploring YubiKey, a hardware device recently given away with a “Wired” Magazine subscription as one approach to Strong Authentication. Please comment below.

According to Mr.New, the yet to be adopted replacement agreement USMCA for NAFTA encourages data innovation through key components intended to protect intellectual property and minimize restrictions on where personal private data is stored.
Additional details are found in the article linked below.
Joshua New asserts: “By promoting open data, protecting cross-border data flows, and dissuading parties from enacting algorithmic transparency requirements, the USMCA will foster data-driven innovation. As the U.S. considers trade deals with the United Kingdom and other countries, it should pursue similar rules to promote data-driven innovation domestically and abroad.”
Earlier this week, the Trump administration announced the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), the trade deal it intends to replace NAFTA with. The parties-Canada, Mexico, and the United States-still have to adopt the deal, and if they do, they will enjoy several welcome provisions that ca
Police have always relied on data – whether push pins tracking crimes on a map, mug shot cards, or intelligence files on repeat offenders. The problem with all that information is that it has traditionally been slow and hard to use. “I would have to log into 19 different databases,” says Los Angeles Police Department Deputy Chief Dennis Kato.
