The most interesting thing I found from this source is that the United Nations established that privacy is a right “needed to be protected online and offline.”

The article was published to the January/February in 2014 of the Information Management Journal. The author isn’t anywhere to be found besides the fact it was written in the Information Management Journal. Upon searching on Google I could not find anything really on the Information Management Journal. From what I did find I found that it was published by ARMA International which is a nonprofit that manages records and information usually dealing with legality and regulatory changes.

They do refer to Ponemon Institute in their article in a graph. Ponemon Institute is a company that “measures trust in privacy and security” which is very relevant to this article. They also mention quotes from the United Nations themselves.

The new perspective this article gives me is that the United Nations recognizes the need for privacy on the internet. Not only the need for privacy but they talk about it as it being a human right.

New key words that I could use to search for is right of privacy, human rights, internet surveillance, committee, resolution, unlawful surveillance.

This article was more of a research based work that was filled with facts and information. One of the most surprising pieces of information from the article is how much information and privacy you as a user are giving up by going to certain websites.

This article is from 2011. It was published in the Telecommunications Policy journal under the publisher Elsevier. Telecommunications Policy is a journal that focuses on “the roles of information and communication technologies in the economy and society.” Telecommunications Policy of the United States is a set of laws created to regulate communication companies with the public interest as the priority. The author, Yong Jin Park, is a professor for the School of Communications at Howard University who has published many articles in journals and done a good amount of research dealing with “privacy, new media use”.

The new perspective that this article gives is what actions needs top happen to help create more privacy for the user on the internet. The author suggested that the Federal Trade Commission start taking action with websites.

What I want to find out next is how much and what kind of data is taken from more than just websites. I want to see what actions have the United States government taken to give the user more privacy.

Some different keyterms that I could say could be privacy protection, data protection, data stealing, Federal Trade Commission, policy, Fair Information Practices, and websites data.
