Also, if the U.N. were to take charge, the cost to deliver their services globally would be far too costly for website like google. Since many Countries have their own agendas and policies implemented, there is no need for the U.N. to regulate the Internet. Since Internet monitoring is a controversial issue on a political and societal scale, it has both negatives and positives that benefit both the government and people. Although some may oppose Internet monitoring, it is necessary in some circumstances. It can help prevent and detect cybercrime, unauthorized access to sensitive data, and terrorism.
Privacy and security of personal data is one of the most difficult challenges that businesses dealing in e-commerce venture face in today’s global world. Though these business sites have little or no interest in private and personal information of the users, but the information collected by them can however lead to risks. The personal information is often provided by users actively and voluntarily such as names, email ids, physical addresses or even credit card information. Though in some cases information is passively passed on by users and even sites to third party, for example some of site banner ads allow third party advertisers to track users browsing habits. But most often websites gather and use the data containing individual’s information without even their knowledge.
The issue is not that it is your mother’s blog, but in the realization that this detection technique could be applied to your bank account, email, or any other accounts you may have. Most or all of these contain sensitive information that can be exploited if in the wrong hands (Grossman 70).

Internet cookies are extremely valuable to consumers and website operators alike, despite concerns that they threaten web users’ personal privacy. Without cookies, the Internet would be slower, the electronic marketplace, a difficult place to navigate and the entire online experience frustrating. The Internet Alliance urges lawmakers not to regulate cookies but to work with industry to address the underlying issues: privacy and security. Together we must alert consumers on how to use technology and common sense to protect their own personal privacy online. First, it is important to understand what cookies are and how they benefit the web browser.
These problems range from lack of trust to serious concerns about Internet safety and access to private data. The way email marketing treats our private data is a major concern. Email marketing is an effective way of advertising and much cheaper than any other media (infront webworks) but it is important to put in consideration that each one has his/her privacy, which cannot be accessed. Email marketing can access personal information from emails. Consumer online life may not seem to be tracked as he/she accesses the Internet.
People are still concerned about giving their information online. Therefore it is up to the retailers to assure their customers that making a purchase online is safe and secure. The use of 56-bit and 128-bit encryption technology has definitely helped ease the minds of customers by offering them a sense of security. However, there is no gaurantee that this security measure can prevent hackers from cracking the code if they really wanted to. In the future, there will be a greater dependence on the Internet than ever before, and not just for e-commerce, but also for control of critical infrastructure (power generation, communications, transportation, etc.).

Everything that goes online can be accessed by others, and this makes it difficult for managers to identify matters and practices they should be concerned with, including consumer’s privacy (Ccnmtl.columbia.edu, 2014). Failing to protect consumer’s privacy could lead to hacking and intrusion of an individual’s personal information (Khosrow-Pour, 2002; 2). For example, social applications such as WhatsApp and Viber are becoming increasingly popular. The instant message Viber has failed to protect the user’s privacy. It has been hacked recently by the Syrian Electronic Army (“Viber free download” 2014) despite the technical measures used to protect user’s data.
However, the use of social media can have risks such as the loss of an individual’s privacy. In his article, “Privacy as Product of Safety”, James Grimmelmann reveals that Facebook users care about their privacy, however they have great trouble achieving it. Frequent Facebook use raises the concern of privacy loss, since it serves as a tool for everybody to obtain information that should be kept private, it is imperative to raise awareness in order to prevent losing privacy entirely. The rapid adoption of Facebook creates a wrong image of “privacy” that users do not notice. Facebook users have the idea that their information is private.
To protect children from accidentally viewing adult pornography on the Internet, a law that requires Internet filters is not the best solution.
