YaleStudents website generates student debate, reveals potential data governance gap in University policy

Vaibhav Sharma, Photo Editor

Editor’s note, Nov. 17, 8:28 a.m.: On Tuesday morning, after the story’s publication, the site’s creators introduced new data protection policies in a major walkback from their initial site.

“When YaleStudents was first released, all users were automatically opted in. We have since realized that this was an improper and inappropriate use of data — data should only be displayed with explicit consent,” a new banner reads. It appears as a pop up window when visitors enter the site.

All Yale student users are now opted out by default on the website. To be visible on the “Lookalikes,” “Neighbors” and “Maps” pages, students must specifically choose to opt in.

As of early Tuesday morning, just two dots appear on the site’s map — belonging to Gunderson and Yao — a far cry from the thousands that represented students scattered across the world just hours prior.

Open Source Software Terrascan Extends Policy as Code Support to Helm, Kustomize

OPA-Based architecture eases governance across multiple cloud native technologies

From KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America – Accurics, the cloud cyber resilience specialist, today announced that Terrascan, the open source static code analyzer that enables developers to build secure infrastructure as code (IaC), has been extended to support Helm and Kustomize, both projects from the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) that have gained immense popularity. This enables organizations to ensure applications on Kubernetes clusters are secure and compliant before they are deployed.

“Given the increasing scale and velocity of cloud breaches, organizations need policy guardrails to ensure that cloud native infrastructure is securely defined and managed,” said Cesar Rodriguez, creator of Terrascan and head of Developer Advocacy at Accurics. “Now, with the additional support for Helm and Kustomize, teams using Terrascan to programmatically establish Policy as Code guardrails in their high-velocity, component-based Kubernetes projects have a way to reduce security

This Software Company Made its Family Leave Policy Far More Inclusive

The novel coronavirus pandemic has put new spins and strains on workplaces, schools and families, leading to new perspectives on work and life. One company decided it was time to take another look at its family leave policy.

A perfect time, executives at New Zealand-based accounting software company Xero decided, to enhance the company’s already generous family leave policy with additional time and more inclusive language.

“Overall, there was a lot of excitement and a bit of surprise that we launched it during a pandemic,” said Ben Richmond, Xero’s U.S. country manager, who is based in Colorado. “When you think of what’s going on, people have friends and family at other companies facing layoffs and pay cuts. We’ve taken this people-first principle.

“This is a time when the world needs leadership on these types of topics,” Richmond continued.  “It is important in these crazy times.”

Xero started by throwing out

Instagram is changing its policy in response to a viral campaign started after a photo of a topless Black plus-size model was removed from the platform and said to be a violation of community guidelines. But in the wake of the announcement that the platform is changing its rules around the identification of breast squeezing in particular — something that Instagram representatives say is most commonly associated with pornographic content — the woman who led the charge, Nyome Nicholas-Williams, explains that it might not be enough.

The British model, who has posed for Vogue Italia and Dove, posted a photo of herself embracing her chest on Instagram back in July, when she was met with praise from her followers. Moments after posting, however, the photo was removed with

Instagram changes nudity policy after plus-size Black model’s campaign

  • Instagram has amended its rules around nudity following a campaign from a Black plus-sized model whose photos were taken down.
  • Nyome Nicholas-Williams started campaigning in August — she pointed out that her images were taken down but images of “very naked, skinny white women” remained on Instagram.
  • Instagram said Monday it had incorrectly applied its rules on “breast squeezing” to Nicholas-Williams’ images, and said it was adding some more nuance to those rules.
  • Instagram and Facebook will now allow any images where someone is “simply hugging, cupping or holding their breasts.”
  • It will still ban photos where people are grasping their breasts “in a grabbing motion with bent fingers or if there is a clear change in the shape of the breasts.”

TikTok expands policy violation notifications

TikTok has been working to expand its content rules and safeguards against misinformation and hate speech this year, including launching an election guide within the app and prohibiting deepfake videos. The company also confirmed this week it will remove posts supporting white nationalism, in addition to neo-Nazi content it already removed.

But like fellow social media companies Twitter and Facebook, TikTok still struggles to rid its site completely of misinformation — including the recent spread of false stories about Joe Biden’s health.

TikTok has been testing the new notifications announced Thursday for a few months, the company said in a blog post. It said the explanations have been helping reduce the number of repeat violations, and it saw a 14 percent reduction in appeals.

“By being more transparent with our content enforcement, we aim to ensure that our Community Guidelines are enforced uniformly and evenly,” the post said.

FCC changes its stance on Section 230 policy after months of Trump tweets

The FCC is an independent agency, and historically, it has sought to emphasize its separation from the White House. But some critics still saw the FCC’s timing as politically peculiar. Only a year ago, top FCC aides had told the Trump administration privately that they did not want to pursue regulation around online speech, according to four people with direct knowledge of the talks, who spoke on condition of anonymity to describe confidential proceedings. The comments came as part of a series of conversations convened by the White House designed to explore potential regulation targeting Silicon Valley.

Pai himself previously had expressed opposition to new FCC regulation targeting social-media sites. On Thursday, however, he set the agency on a path toward issuing new rules around Section 230, citing concerns shared by “all three branches of government” about the tech giants’ behavior.

“Social media companies have a First Amendment right to
