Title: Vulnerable Groups and the Impact of Technology upon Personal Privacy
Author(s): Shirley Atkinson, Christopher Johnson, Andrew Phippen
Keywords: Privacy, Vulnerability, Domestic Abuse, Teenagers, Technology
Abstract: Privacy for the individual has become more of a concern as use of the Internet increases. Social websites that facilitate sharing of photographs and personal information potentially increase the risk of harm through harassment and bullying thus leading to serious physical or mental harm. Vulnerability is perceived in new technological development and privacy enhancing technologies (PETs) do not fully address the vulnerability issue. This research presents a view of privacy issues for two vulnerable groups, teenagers and domestic abuse survivors and concludes with how technology might address some of the vulnerability issues.
