AbstractArticlereviewed by me is about how a company in China has used internet user’s data whoare auto enrolled to their “Sesame Credit Program”. By using this data they offeredexciting promotions on spending each year. Few companies used these type ofprograms to attract the customer by using their data without any notice tothem.
Some of other company owner also supported this kind of unsecuredprograms. I explained in detail how these companies gained profits from doingsuch programs which is absolutely against to public privacy. And also they usedInternet as their means of source for such unsecured programs. ThisArticle basically is about how few companies targeted internet users for makingprofits without any idea how people are getting cheated and lost their privatedata to such companies. One of leading online payment company in china hasstarted program known as “Sesame Credit”. People are automatically enrolledinto such program through social media as means of source to reach many peoplein the country. They posted many exciting offers on the social media, people assoon as see such kind of programs they click a line in small font which saysthat user has agreed to terms and conditions which are hidden under that smallfont line.
There is toggle which makes them to auto enroll in the “SesameCredit” program. Thisis most likely data theft of individual who has gone through such promotions onsocial media and this makes them to share those promotions on social media.Another company head commented saying there is no privacy and information thesedays as every camera on the street is watching the public.
I feel very badafter reading such comparison as this could lead to many cyber-attacks whichcould results in many risks to the public and also government.Chinesegovernment after looking into this kind of issues which public are facing fromvarious companies by considering the privacy of Internet users they came up witha new regulation which has Laws which are more concerned about protectingconsumer data. 1) Thisis a good regulation which Chinese Government is trying to implement which couldprotect so many Internet users from being losing their data to companies. Alsothey are planning to introduce an own social credit system which would giveapprovals for foreign travel, spending, social benefits depending on theirscore. This is not same as other companies collected data without individualacknowledgement but here this system will ask individual authentication toaccess such personal data.2) Thisregulation has not made any complications related to either business ortechnology development rather it made more secured from both users point ofview and also from business side.
Technology always looks for increasingbusiness with considering users privacy. 3) Inmy view I would like to educate the public in more detail about the regulationsand also how some companies are taking advantage of technology which they usefor profits by cheating public with some illegal techniques. Also I would liketo take a serious action on such companies through this regulation from whichthey would realize their fault.
