Security vs. Privacy - Schneier on Security

Given that information flowing through cyberspace is not constrained by national borders, "with whom we share data and where it ultimately resides in cyberspace is an inherently international concern." As such, citizens of every country face similar risks in the protection of their privacy rights. Issues of cyber security and privacy protection are global challenges that require a global response.

The false dichotomy of security vs. privacy assumes that security is someone else's responsibility.

Privacy vs. Security: A False Dichotomy | HuffPost

I believe there are two types of security
1) National Security- this security does require you to give information and we need to find a balance for this.
and
2) Security of Privacy- like the walls in your house that protect your personal actions , without this security privacy would not exist.

Privacy vs. Security | Security, Risk Management, & …

Security is only one of the arguments for invasion of privacy. here in the UK, "streamlining" and "efficiency" seem to serve just as well. Witness the lately announced MIAP examination pass database - a permanent public record of everyone's exam passes, whose primary purpose seems to be to engage government in a "war on cheating" by job applicants.

As cyber security policy is developed at a national level, there is a risk that national security and public safety objectives could take a predominant role in formulating responses to cyber threats, at the expense of privacy protection. In this manifestation, cyber security policy could enable what Deibert describes as the “securitization of cyberspace – a transformation of the domain into a matter of national security.” In an era when national security is so often used to justify extraordinary intrusions on individual privacy, it will be vital to ensure that cyber security strategies and activities do not endorse building massive surveillance regimes for unlimited and unending monitoring and analysis of the personal information of individuals. Cyber security efforts should not expand surveillance to the detriment of individuals’ privacy, civil liberties or other democratically held values.” Governments must build in the necessary checks and controls to reflect the privacy norms we ascribe to as a society.

For people who choose to go along with the Security vs. Privacy debate and want to keep seeing it as one or the other, I think they should also ask what they get in return in case of unforseen events.

Pros & Cons - Security Vs. Privacy

When increasing privacy increases security or decreasing privacy decreases security, as in the case of these basic examples, privacy vs. security cannot be a "zero-sum game". In a zero sum game decreasing one must necessarily increase the other and vice-versa. That's what "zero-sum" means. Any other use of the term "zero-sum game" is just deceptive propaganda. Based on the quote in your article Ed Giorgio either doesn't understand privacy and security or he doesn't understand game theory (or he's engaging in deceptive propaganda, but why give him that much credit).

For a more human example, consider the plight of the mentally ill. Most mentally ill people function quite effectively with just outpatient treatment. On the other hand, despite anti-discrimination laws, mentally ill people are more likely to lose jobs or housing or have difficulty finding jobs or housing if their illness is publicly known. There are many places that even have laws that discriminate against the mentally ill. In my state concealed carry permits (apropos of the discussion over a recent blog post of yours) are denied to those who have simply been diagnosed with certain illnesses. How safe can mentally ill people feel when expected to live in an armed society but denied the right to arm themselves? For many of the mentally ill reducing their privacy reduces their security. I have to wonder how fast most mentally ill people would be added to the no-fly list if they were required to divulge their diagnosis.

As one such data protection authority, the OPC is perceived as a key player engaged in shaping international cyberspace governance due to the Office's efforts to ensure that online service offerings from international companies uphold Canadians' right to privacy in accordance with Canadian standards for privacy protection. International co-operation in the areas of cyber security and privacy protection will continue to be essential to address the transborder and cross-organizational challenges for cyber security and data protection. In 2013, Peter Hustinx, then European Data Protection Supervisor, acknowledged that cyber security issues have to be addressed at an international level through international standards and cooperation. Hustinx also commented that "while measures to ensure cyber security may require the analysis of some personal information of individuals, for instance IP addresses that can be traced back to specific individuals, cyber security can play a fundamental role in ensuring the protection of privacy and data protection rights in the online environment, provided the processing of this data is proportionate, necessary and lawful."
