Global Network Initiative - Protecting and Advancing Freedom of Expression and Privacy in Information and Communication Technologies

Bulk Webcam Collection Neither Necessary Nor Proportionate


The Global Network Initiative is deeply alarmed by reports that the UK intelligence agency, GCHQ, has intercepted millions of Yahoo! webcam images. 

In response, GNI Executive Director Susan Morgan said: “This is a truly shocking example of the urgent need to reform global government surveillance practices. It is hard to imagine how the mass collection of millions of images of webcam users could be considered necessary or proportionate. GNI supports reforms that would protect the privacy rights of people from all countries and end the bulk collection of communications data in the UK, the US, and around the world.”
