Information society projects promise wealth and better services to those countries which digitise and encourage the consumer and citizen to participate. As paper recedes into the background and digital data becomes the primary resource in the information society, what does this mean for privacy? Can there be privacy when every communication made through ever-developing ubiquitous devices is recorded? Data protection legislation developed as a reply to large scale centralised databases which contained incorrect data and where data controllers denied access and refused to remedy information flaws. Some decades later the technical world is very different one, and whilst data protection remains important, the cries for more privacy-oriented regulation in commerce and eGov continue to rise. What factors should underpin the creation of new means of regulation? The papers in this collection have been drawn together to develop the positive and negative effects upon the information society which privacy regulation implies.

On September 12, 2013, United Airlines' website offered flights for $0.00. Only taxes and fees were charged, a situation caused by a computer glitch that occurred during the set-up of new prices within the booking system. The news about this "special offer" spread quickly on Twitter and Facebook. Everyone who found out in time saved a lot of money on their next vacation. In 2010, a famous magazine revealed that a well-known market research company monitored an Internet forum for patients with mental illness. The monitoring was carried out on behalf of a client in the pharmaceutical industry looking for insights into the use of pharmaceutical products. Every active user of the forum became the subject of a marketing study - without being asked. These two examples express the value of information, especially to those in control of the material. Everybody with access to the right information at the right time can save or earn a lot of money. I am convinced that everyone should be able to use the content on the Internet as profitably as possible. But everyone must recognize the dangers that arise from it as well. Therefore it is essential to understand the tools and techniques for collecting, analyzing and processing digital content. Tools are available free of charge that don't require detailed technical knowledge. This book explains how these tools have evolved and where they will lead us in the near future. It serves as a guide for those who want to automate their digital life using free Internet services. Let them search the Internet for bargains, research the latest news, execute recurring tasks and inform you automatically when needed. This book discusses methods, tools and solutions to build your own individual semantic web.

Instrument Engineers' Handbook – Volume 3: Process Software and Digital Networks, Fourth Edition is the latest addition to an enduring collection that industrial automation (AT) professionals often refer to as the "bible." First published in 1970, the entire handbook is approximately 5,000 pages, designed as standalone volumes that cover the measurement (Volume 1), control (Volume 2), and software (Volume 3) aspects of automation. This fourth edition of the third volume provides an in-depth, state-of-the-art review of control software packages used in plant optimization, control, maintenance, and safety. Each updated volume of this renowned reference requires about ten years to prepare, so revised installments have been issued every decade, taking into account the numerous developments that occur from one publication to the next. Assessing the rapid evolution of automation and optimization in control systems used in all types of industrial plants, this book details the wired/wireless communications and software used. This includes the ever-increasing number of applications for intelligent instruments, enhanced networks, Internet use, virtual private networks, and integration of control systems with the main networks used by management, all of which operate in a linked global environment. Topics covered include: Advances in new displays, which help operators to more quickly assess and respond to plant conditions Software and networks that help monitor, control, and optimize industrial processes, to determine the efficiency, energy consumption, and profitability of operations Strategies to counteract changes in market conditions and energy and raw material costs Techniques to fortify the safety of plant operations and the security of digital communications systems This volume explores why the holistic approach to integrating process and enterprise networks is convenient and efficient, despite associated problems involving cyber and local network security, energy conservation, and other issues. It shows how firewalls must separate the business (IT) and the operation (automation technology, or AT) domains to guarantee the safe function of all industrial plants. This book illustrates how these concerns must be addressed using effective technical solutions and proper management policies and practices. Reinforcing the fact that all industrial control systems are, in general, critically interdependent, this handbook provides a wide range of software application examples from industries including: automotive, mining, renewable energy, steel, dairy, pharmaceutical, mineral processing, oil, gas, electric power, utility, and nuclear power.
