Top Ten Lists

Day to day, our actions are being captured, and increasingly, it’s being done by surveillance cameras. This technology – like RFID tags – is being used by more organizations everyday to improve security and deter thieves. And while that’s a perfectly legitimate reason to employ cameras, organizations should also be ensuring their surveillance activities minimize the impact on people’s privacy.

With that in mind, we released new video surveillance guidelines earlier this month, setting out how organizations should evaluate the use of video surveillance and how to respect privacy rights and comply with the law.

And if our guidelines can be considered the Top Ten list on what to do when considering video surveillance, think of this video as the Top Ten list on what not to do.
