The word ‘transparency’ is becoming, ironically, more convoluted these days as governments across the world are addressing the balance between Internet privacy and security. However, it’s not just users’ information that may have more transparency in the future but also that of corporations and governments themselves. Furthermore, while influential politicians across the world are calling on Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and social networking sites to be more transparent with their users’ data, users are campaigning for governments, ISPs and websites to be more transparent when it comes to what information they store.

During 2014 Fluidata published a number of articles discussing Ofcom’s investigations, particularly those into the controversial broadband supplier British Telecoms (BT). However, it seems as though the regulatory body is planning on becoming even stricter this year, meaning that telecommunications companies may soon face harsher regulations.

Last week (and technically year) Fluidata published our round-up of 2014 which included some of our own personal highlights as well as the biggest issues and talking points in the online industry.
