It’s been a (very) long while since I posted something here, and it’s not for lack of ideas. The reality is that time is always the most precious commodity, and, for some reason, other things always end up taking priority.
You may have noticed an increasing trend of news articles about breaches of privacy, confidential data being leaked, and abuse of privacy regulations. We are used to big companies being hacked, leaking private data, and their ineptitude in handling these privacy incidents. You probably remember the Equifax data breach in 2017, or more recently, in Singapore, SingHealth (Singapore’s biggest network of healthcare facilities). The trend started with non-technology companies, but is spreading fast, and has begun to affect the FAANGs: Facebook (and its subsidiary Instagram), Google, Amazon. Apple is still holding for the moment. This list only covers the most hyped cases of the past few weeks.
