How to make sure that "Data Altruism Organisations" (official status of an organisation that shares lots of data) will not end up as a Data Laundry? For example to avoid CambridgeAnalytica-style data heists. Sufficient with transparency?

UK's Telecom Security Bill is stringent on cybersecurity. Very broad definitions. Policymakers may demand some action from companies.

Possible fines for cybersecurity negligence is £100,000 per day. Max is £10 million. Ofcom becomes a cybersecurity regulator. Fines are big. Companies WILL prefer to be cybersecurity-compliant. This act will make companies treat cybersecurity "very seriously" (£10m-seriously).

Further links between politics, policy, geopolitics, and technology. Expect very long-term implications, even beyond this decade.
UK unveils Telecoms Security Bill. The law would allow banning "high-risk" vendors. Some people think this is about Huawei but it goes way beyond that. gov.uk/government/news/new-t…

See the full list of service workers installed in your browsers. On Firefox browse to about:serviceworkers; on Chrome browse to: chrome://serviceworker-internals/
Do you think that Service Workers used on websites on a standard basis require user consent? Under #ePrivacy Directive this is about installing it in user's terminal. If not, why not? Stores information; you need consent for non-tracking cookies too. w3c.github.io/ServiceWorker/
