MELANI Semi-Annual Report 2019/2

The 30th semi-annual report of the Reporting and Analysis Centre for Infor­ma­tion Assur­ance (MELANI) addresses the most impor­tant cyber­in­ci­dents of the second half of 2019 both in Switzer­land and abroad. The latest report focuses on han­dling per­sonal data on the internet and the prob­lems involved.

Dig­i­tal­i­sa­tion is shaping everyday life: people are ordering goods online, booking their hol­i­days online and using social media. Many users are not aware that the ser­vices con­cerned analyse their per­sonal data, and that the results are then used for mar­keting pur­poses, for example, or that they may even be sold on to third par­ties. Dig­ital foot­prints are also left behind when browsing the internet. If this infor­ma­tion is linked to an email address or a social media account, for instance, providers can analyse what users search for, what they like and what they prefer to spend their time doing. This semi-annual report by the Reporting and Analysis Centre for Infor­ma­tion Assur­ance (MELANI) exam­ines the prob­lems with «per­sonal data on the internet» from var­ious perspectives.
