Democracy and Security

ISC2 Code Of Ethics

A reader from Hong Kong asked me for security solutions against surveillance because he/she is worried about facial recognition and cameras that monitor people.

Democracy, I replied.

As technologies evolve, it’s getting harder for people to fight against machines that are originally created to protect us. We don’t fight against machines but the government that uses them with evil intentions.

Democracy is the administrative control to mitigate the risk of evil governance of a country.
