One comment on “Smashing Security podcast #188: Dinner with Elon Musk and Kris Jenner”
1) Regarding 'Bossware', my experience when I was working it was for a firm with a very hierarchical management system. Although the technology was there for me work from home my manger rarely permitted it.
It turned out that to keep his job as manager he had to have x number of employees in the office under his supervision… His boss had to have y number of managers with their x number of working units… And so it goes depending on the number of levels in the hierarchy.
2) Regarding banning of 'Stalkerware', I believe the U.N. has published a document (perhaps a draft) regarding 'surveillance and human rights' and specifically something they call "Targeted Surveillance". (Available at: https://www.ohchr.org/.)
Admittedly not targeted at you and me but more towards nation states, huge corporations and the companies that provide surveillance equipment and software for the, it is an interesting read and the start of a conversation I believe we must have, as we, the individuals, are the targets.
