Protecting Privacy in Video Surveillance

December 3, 2009

In recent years, the extent of video surveillance has risen substantially. This expansion in the ability of both state and private organisations to monitor and record the activities of the public has not generally been matched by the adoption of mechanisms to protect the rights of individuals. This important book reviews some of the systems under development to help provide a balance between corporate, or governmental, aspirations and the expectations of the individual. Some have found practical applications, while others are currently tests of concept - but many will offer significant choices for society in the management of privacy.

Who is it for? Those with a technical, ethical or practical interest in video surveillance systems and the development of effective tools to help protect the privacy of individuals.

Presentation: An introductory chapter followed by a diverse but cohesive set of extended research papers from specialists active in the field.

Would you recommend it? Yes. It is a current, well-informed text on an area that should be regarded as important by a wide range of people.
