Would You Give Up Privacy For More Security?

GetConnected Video Podcast - February 1, 2020

On this week’s GetConnected Video Podcast, cities like Windsor, Ontario are partnering up with police to use Amazon Ring cameras to spy on us. Do the benefits outweigh the loss of privacy in exchange for the perception of security? It looks like Fonus has kicked up some controversy on Twitter. The embattled global carrier with an offer of $30 US a month all you can eat mobile plan is facing backlash for delays in launching their product. We take a more in-depth look at some of the issues associated with an undertaking of this magnitude.

Finally, we talk about Huawei and its recent win in the UK for deploying 5G networks to non-sensitive areas of the country which excludes the military, major utilities, and other sensitive areas. Will Canada adopt a similar deployment plan? This and more on the February 1, 2020 edition of the GetConnected Video Podcast.

This week’s hosts are Mike Agerbo and John Biehler. Joining us are special guests Kristen Thomasen, a law professor from the University of Windsor, and Shruti Shekar, a tech expert from Yahoo Finance Canada.
