Solicitor Ernest Aduwa comments in SC Magazine regarding the recent development that NSO Group are data harvesting from servers of any global service.

 

Ernest’s comments were published in SC Magazine, 23 July 2019, and can be found here.

In a product demonstration to the government of Uganda earlier this year, NSO’s parent company Q-Cyber has claimed that its technology can secretively harvest individual user data from the servers of the big five tech giants — Google, Apple, Amazon, Facebook and Microsoft. 

Ernest Aduwa, criminal defence lawyer at Stokoe Partnership Solicitors, agrees. Adding: “Governments are supposed to use this technology. It comes as no surprise that this capability is being developed and is being promoted the way it is.” 

“It is better that it is promoted and that the public are aware of it than having clandestine organisations,” Aduwa suggested. “The greater the awareness of the surveillance threat, then the greater the ability to protect against surveillance will be.”
