Control measures and security of citizens: the risks (DIEEEO30-2013)

The access from third countries authorities to PNR and SWIFT records is a measure needed to implement the law enforcement against international crime and terrorism. This collaboration has several troubles: the chance to violate civil rights, and on the other hand, the chance to process such data in intelligence activities beyond law enforcement. The above mentioned cases had an impact in the media from the point of view of violation of civil rights, but the second view was subdued. Concerning this topic, it is important to take into account that there are other sources of data about citizens, not only with regard to data communication between states, but other sources managed by private and public institutions, that are more or less open to third parties.
