Romania: Mass surveillance project disguised as eGovernment
The Romanian Intelligence Services (SRI) has been recently granted EU funds for the project “SII Analytics” to acquire software and hardware for “consolidating and assuring eGovernment interoperability between public information systems”. The project seems to aim at gathering all major state owned databases (e.g. citizens and company registry, health card data, fiscal data) in SRI’s playground. The data would be joined into one large system, through which other public institutions would potentially have unlimited and unwarranted access to the personal data collected.
