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.
2) Security of Privacy- like the walls in your house that protect your personal actions , without this security privacy would not exist.

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.
