8:34 am
defeating covey. 19, also done lasting damage to our civil liberties. we've been in search of ounces. ah, the, the corona virus pandemic has false governments around the world to take extra ordinary matches closing cities, banning travel and making people stay at home a month at a time, ah, in the race to defeat the disease. they've also had together huge amounts of data about whereabouts and i'll state of help me digital contact. pressing tools offered
8:35 am
the opportunity to try this larger numbers of contacts in a short period of time and to provide real time picture of the spread of the virus . but privacy campaign is now asking if all the new laws, technology and data gathering has been strictly essential. the way i like to frame what's been going on since the initial stages of the panoramic has been 1st government pen and they panic because they recognize that they didn't have the infrastructure being needed. and so what did they do? they use the infrastructure they had, which was intelligence agencies, policing. and in the absence of any capability of testing, they thought, is there a way for technology to solve this problem? what we know is the crisis is the ground on which long time a ration of our liberties see that it can feel really difficult making civil
8:36 am
liberties arguments in the context of a crisis. you know, whether that is 911, which we've all learned an awful lot from. whether it is dependent because you're often painted out, you don't care about public safety or public health. but exactly how about civil liberties been eroded? what's been going on under the cover of cove it and where me. back in march 2020 the high tech city state of singapore was one of the most enthusiastic adopters of using mobile phones for contact tracing. play your part in fighting coby 19 with just 2 simple steps. one, download tweet together and help those around you to set it up to turn your bluetooth. and it is as simple as that. as in many countries, the government said the app was voluntary, worked entirely on anonymized aidid, and he's only tracking the virus no the user. and that really is no job cation,
8:37 am
no other personal data is collected. but digital rights activists like li ting was taking their word for it. when the tech experts examined the code for it, they found that it wasn't doing all the things that it would do. so for instance, data would not be shared, would be totally anonymous. and so on, they found that the data was shared more widely than it was supposed to do with. so some government agencies at 1st take up with low until the app was made mandatory to access public areas like shopping mode. now it's used by nearly 80 percent of the population, the but in january 2021, the government admitted the police had access the data for murder investigation, police forces, and pollard under the criminal procedure code to a kid. any data and day includes to try to get a data for criminal investigations,
8:38 am
even in normally creation cinnapool that was concern. it also brought up the question for people. so what the data has been used and what types of investigations can we trust that this is the only time that this has happened? at the time i was volunteering quite have me with sex locust fights, organization. and one of my concerns was that the data on contact tracing could be used to identify sex workers and their clients. this has your trace together history. so over the past 25 days, these are the number of times that devices with trace together have been pinged. and given that textbook, as from the life and singapore largely, i was, i had some concerns. there is evidence to suggest digital contact rating can be more effective, the manual tracing, but privacy campaign as be these methods of surveillance without believe their initial years. that's going to be one of the legacies of cobra,
8:39 am
the whole idea that your mobile phone and app and the telecommunications infrastructure designed for you to enjoy spending your time communicating with others will be used to enforce your own detention in the future. in israel, the government also employed mobile phone contact tracing, but use the method the rage even more privacy concerns. while ordinary people struggled on the heavily police lock. pam's, the pandemic like prime minister benjamin netanyahu divert public attention from fraud and bribery allegations, but demonstrations against corruption and the government handling of the pandemic erupted anyway. the will bear on a regular protest. during one of the lockdown went outside meetings were permitted . he met with fellow activists. this is what we were doing that night. there was
8:40 am
a far as the birthday party of one of my friends then the police just came in. we're starting to harass us and just wanted to leave a few days later, i got the text message with the date and the hours you were near someone who was tested positive for girl and a virus. you have to immediately start a warranty. and this might seem normal for many countries, but an emergency regulation had allowed the shin bad israel secret service to run its track and praise program in cub love. but ashley sheet, lender feel civilians cannot opt out. they can't even off it. it's just the secret service tracking all civilians, anybody within israel, they are the only democracy in the world to this day that was using their secret services to do this machine better often accused of breaching human rights lower in their treatment of palestinians. but the revelation showed that they don't only
8:41 am
operate in the west bank and occupied territory. the reason this happened is because the shouldn't bet already is tracing people instead of waiting for something new to be created. they already have a tool within the ship bed. the 2 was a secret long program to monitor telecommunications across israel and palestine. i felt really angry because i had a feeling that because we were there, like many people from the process, it happened just about this event. it's an open question whether she was forced into quarantine because the state was targeting protestors or merely protecting citizen from a deadly disease, but civil rights campaign and say that with chin bad doing both, nobody would know in a democracy, can't see that there's a surveillance state in the sense that a government contracts, certain people, this can lead to a situation where the government knows about your sexual orientation about your
8:42 am
political orientation. and what it can do is lead to freezing affect the phenomenon where people don't want to go outside and do certain things. let's say protests, because they have a fear of being tracked off to several legal challenges. the government says the shin bet surveillance has now been scaled back, but the scandal opened at least some israeli, i to the way palestinians the routinely monitor. and i think that we finally have to fight against it in all areas. a doesn't matter if it happened to him, and he's really citizen or to someone in the occupied territories. this is really, really bad. this is a slippery slope at the words violating human rights in the early stages of the pandemic. other government also experimented with the electronic mass tracking, but we've only marginal success. ultimately, it was recognized that this level of math surveillance doesn't actually help you with a pandemic. so they decided to resort to what they do often as the next step,
8:43 am
which is rely extensively on industry to sell them toys. your system show that you know, hopefully i would recommend you for the industry. many governments tend to with biometrics, which uses unique personal traits like a face iris fingerprint to identify me for china, which was already openly using facial recognition and it's big cities. the pandemic turbocharged the roll out in smaller towns across the country. the claim, the biometric and contactless transactions, a safer has obvious appeal for airline, keen to get people back into the air. says the ceo of quantas called travel. people now wish it a huge move to that. yours mirrors in the space of a few more. we think that as a change that will stay. ready there forever. it's also
8:44 am
a change coming to retail. this leading russian supermarket has teamed up with visa, so you can pay for your shopping with your fate. a lot of it is a sort of form of tech solution and them, which is the idea that technology because it's funny because it's new, contains all the outs until about problems in many people. so the unquestioningly trust technology or fume that it's going to be the most efficient or the best solution. but critics say biometrics is an industry with a checkered past around pre 911 where the facial recognition was being touted by police, particularly in the united states as the great solution to producing problems without recognizing that their own force was turned off the tech because it wasn't actually working, then 911 happens just months later, and all of a sudden governments are reaching for facial recognition and fingerprinting. so we deployed them at borders. you put them in passports without ever asking who does it work for? when does it work? when does it fail?
8:45 am
what happens to somebody who it fails for today to get detained because something doesn't match. the biometric industry same says goes where there is oppertunity money and few questions. a few years ago by industry is looking for a new market and a then decide to go for the next great domain of policy making, where we don't care what happens to people. and that was in the migration sector and refugees in refugee camps. so our refugee agencies and, and governments for sponsoring refugee agencies to deploy fingerprinting iris scan facial recognition. and again, i got a close up view of some of these in the, in refugee camps. the only people who didn't realize that the technology didn't work where the policymakers, everybody else knew the technology wasn't working, but it didn't stop the fail, the reliance and the people's lives based around yes. now did the system say you're allowed and or did the system deny you? because it failed campaign to say these systems are often 1st tried out away from
8:46 am
criticality in the west like biometric voting, which has been trialed in afghanistan, uganda, and here in iraq with a panoramic. maybe we can use facial recognition with people's faces covered. maybe we can use cameras to attract people across cities to do contact tracing. and in a post pandemic your we can use facial recognition at borders. we can use facial recognition shops, we can use a facial recognition everywhere. and then we've forgotten why we deployed it with biometrics and bias is hated. there is a real risk that i'll kind of personal identity faces our fingerprints. the irises, we can't change those. they will be locked into a system forever. they can be exposed to by hackers. they can be supported by unscrupulous governments. and them with stock has no way of resetting your face. it's not like a password. this is a kind of a permanent solution to a temporary problem. the,
8:47 am
the temporary becoming permanent is just one of the consent campaign of have around the chest data. still a joint computer system fail using the personal data held by britain national health service. where do you live and have yourself as many i mentioned before, you know, the old personal information on over 60000000 people often going back decades has, has one of the biggest stores of patient records going back through time globally. it says standouts in terms of the day 3 has and it's billions of pounds. and they, sir, is the oil as be nowadays? here is money. normally any test data can only be used by those treating a patient. but when the pandemic struck, the rules were loosened. in march 2020, then a chest announced that they were setting up being called the cove at 19 dates. and that they'd enter into 5 contracts with different tech companies. and that, that they to do was going to be the kind of single source of truth about the
8:48 am
pandemic. for the m h f. the data store pulls together information from across the fast in a test, including confidential details given to the 111 helpline, and even tech company location data. this would supposedly help ministers allocate resources by providing them with a real time dashboard of all aspects of the pandemic. but from the outset, almost every element of a worried previously campaign, as it was extremely vague. we didn't know what they was going into it. we didn't know how it was being used, and it was very secretive and emerged start. the 1st contract had gone to the parents who built the backbone. this for just one pound, which soundcloud trisic to foundry as a software that allows organizations to bring that data together and then enables they use to conduct sophisticated analytics and operations on top of the unified data. currently have been criticized for providing its data mining capability to

the cia and the us border force division ice, responsible for detaining and expelling migrants. they are not particularly well known for health. they are much more well known in relation to their defense contracts. the by tech b, u. s. police forces, they are not the company that certainly we would immediately think would be appropriate. and indeed, we don't think are appropriate for an h. s. contract. but the british government didn't seem that concerned when asked by a technology journalist what palin to my hope to get from a one pound contract. the secretary of state for health replied, the honest truth is, there is no way we would have been able to cope with this pandemic, and deal with in the way that we have been able to without the support of the companies. they've been absolutely brilliant. i put it's given the platforms that we need and lots of them gave over their time and their capability for public
8:50 am
benefits probably by night. rosa curling organization. foxglove, a u. k. law firm set up to challenge big tech, took legal proceedings which both the government to reveal the contract, which was for a pilot or trial project. the contract also detailed the types of dates that being used. what we did say was that the coven 19 data store, was collecting data on political affiliation, religious beliefs. it was correcting information about criminal convictions, ethnic data, employment data. there is no understanding of why political religious data was need is the coven 19 data tool. and much of this information is relevant to scientists. battling the pandemic. dr. pullman k work from britain faxing program. we have no interest in what people buy or political affiliation or any of that type of thing.
8:51 am
we're just interested in the virus, how many cases are being picked up in a certain place. and then using that data to try to target interventions. it may need, begin or sequencing that is guiding what we do. privacy campaign also worried about mission creek. the one set up this huge system with continuing operation off to the pandemic and expand into other areas. the government promised it was temporary and then pounding to signed a new deal for 23000000 pounds. rosa went back to call and was allowed to see the new contract. paper was made clear that the mission crate, the so the contract itself out and confirmed the purpose of the day to the door was going to be increased and widens. the other issue is going to also be look, tap. so be you exit. business monitoring, as usual, whatever that may mean relevant. pandemic flew,
8:52 am
the government decline to respond to us directly. but as the story was unfolding the n h f said strict data rules apply to everyone involved in helping in this critical task. the companies do not control the data and are not committed to use or share it for their own purposes. at the end of the health emergency, their work will either be deleted or returned to be in a chat. in april 2021 talented became an official u. k. government supplier. they've also signed contract with other european governments, including greece and the netherlands to help ministries of the world are just, you know, there's such prime targets for this industry. that is, they're sitting on a lot of data, don't know what to do with it. and then suddenly a sales person is knocking on the door saying, hey, we have experience from building policing systems, border systems, immigration systems on taking mounds of data, mining it, and finding something interesting,
8:53 am
why don't use us and we will help you. but it's our most sensitive and personal in our health data, and it's being used to essentially build the next generation of profiling technology. but it's not just government that are accused of monitoring people under the cover of coded. good afternoon, you're for me to brian. how can i assist you today as millions around the world and now working from home, like bryan unions of raising concerns about the new forms of surveillance, billing. we'll see what we can find. brian's employer requires him to account for every 2nd of his day. so when i go to click into what's called the codes, it's basically notify them where i am and there's about going to the bathroom for me. i'm going to extra when i get back, there's a few just going where are you? when's your time get back on calls? so good, absolutely. be monitored and we'll cool send to work and long been heavily monitored, but it's intensified with the move of working from home without

a metal saying that all the gangs were pounds and a list of who stated monetary reasons. i don't want people, i've never met to see my much. i think it's reasonable. the social agenda element. i don't know if i was a woman. i wouldn't necessarily want some man. i've never met being able to just randomly view my webcam. and in a university, strathclyde survey, 45 percent of old people working from home in the u. k said they are remotely watched in the face of the prospect union. andrew pay is worried. what we've seen in the last year is that hand reach out from traditional industries where micro management is more common into all walks of life, whether it's office workers working at home, whether it's other phones professionals that study by digital rights organization. top 10 vpn showed us sales of surveillance software increased by 51 percent during the pandemic. you've got software now that can measure your key strikes,
8:55 am
how fast you're typing on your laptop or what word you're typing. it is easy now for employees to check your emails for key words, whether you're chatting to different workers into your funding to brian gives us a flavor of what they feel like we have, i guess, an employee for them when the web and i was that was one of the few times people were right angry and there was a said that disappears. so that just vanished suddenly. and there was been a 2nd fed, under people with enough fed saying i've been told to call the pitch is the analytics allow companies to improve stuff productivity, thus increasing profit. but brian thinks employers benefit in other ways. it's also a sort of repressive measure. i think workers are much less likely to organize are much less likely to forget industrial action. we can speak to each other. this tracking is a global phenomena and amazon closed up roll when announced the roll out of

and all of a sudden you have the perfect identity system involving biometrics, modern software, smartphones, all the fight, a panoramic, that one would hope that if you deploy the vaccines sufficiently, you don't need a passport anymore. but you'll have an identity system as the end result of this entire initiative. the a football from spain traded, battling opponents on the biking, fascism at home and abroad, could falling legend at canton. introduces stephanie known the battle a wanting to use the beloved game to help himself and others survived the horrors of a natural concentration. i football rebels on al jazeera we
