This year’s report from Privacy International is pretty grim. Only one country, Greece, received an “adequate” rating. No country was better than “adequate.” Only one country, Slovenia, improved over last year – all others stayed the same or dropped. The United States dropped from the “systemic surveillance society” category to the “endemic surveillance society” category. Canada dropped far, from a rating higher than Greece to below “adequate.”
