Privatsphäre und Öffentlichkeit im Wandel. Über die by Jannik Nitz

By Jannik Nitz

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2014 im Fachbereich Medien / Kommunikation - Medien und Politik, Pol. Kommunikation, notice: 2,4, Otto-Friedrich-Universität Bamberg, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: „Ich habe doch nichts zu verbergen.“ Diesen oder vergleichbare Sätze bekam guy in den letzten Jahren immer wieder zu hören, wenn über Themen wie Datenschutz, Privatsphäre, Geheimdienste oder den NSA Skandal gesprochen wurde. Viele Politiker, Schriftsteller, Wirtschaftler oder Philosophen haben sich mit dem Themenkomplex beschäftigt und es wird mittlerweile differenzierter und ausgiebiger diskutiert: was once für Gefahren kann das umfassende Datensammeln für unfavorable Auswirkungen auf gesellschaftliches Zusammenleben haben? Wer steht dahinter und weiß der einzelne Mensch noch, ob er überwacht wird oder nicht? used to be hat die Kontrolle für Vorteile?

Auch in der Wirtschaft wird Datenschutz zu einem immer wichtigeren Thema, da Cloudsysteme oder andere an Dritte ausgelagerte Datenbanksysteme immer häufiger innerbetriebliche Datenverwaltungs-Apparate ersetzten oder unterstützen sollen und somit vertrauliche Kunden- und Mitarbeiterdaten von einer unbestimmten Anzahl fremder Personen eingesehen werden können. Ein großer, wichtiger und sich ständig wandelnder und weiterentwickelnder Bereich sind hierbei die Technologien, die Unternehmen oder Staaten dazu dienen Daten zu sammeln und die Bürger zu überwachen. Hier herrscht in weiten Teilen der Bevölkerung Unwissenheit in Bezug auf Funktionsweisen und Einsatzfeldern gewisser technischeren Neuerungen und viele Datenschützer sind daher der Meinung, dass eine Privatsphäre nicht mehr existent ist. Dass unteranderem auch die nationale und die internationale Gesetztes Lage daran eine große Mitschuld trägt, erklärt Peter Schaar in seinem Buch „Das Ende der Privatsphäre“.

Das Buch aus dem Jahr 2007 bietet den Grund dieser Arbeit und ich habe im Folgenden versucht gewisse Aspekte, die Schaar aufgreift auf einen aktuellen Stand zu bringen. Es kann als ein Plädoyer für die Entwicklung einer globalen Ethik in Bezug auf Datenschutz und Privatsphäre verstanden werden. Dabei umreißt Schaar sämtliche Bereiche in denen Datenschutz und Privatsphäre diskutiert werden und warnt davor das Individuum als Risikofaktor zu betrachten. Da der aktuelle Forschungsstand das Thema „Post privateness“ betreffend nicht sehr ergiebig ist, dienten neben diesem Werk lediglich einige Studien, das Buch von Christian Heller „Post privateness: Prima leben ohne Privatsphäre“ und vor allem der Seminarinhalt als Grundlage für das Verfassen dieser Seminararbeit.
