Report Claims Ring Employees Had Unfettered Access To Security Camera Footage

From Forbes: Ring, a major player in the smart home security world – the company was acquired by Amazon for $1 billion last year – has come under fire from a damning report which claims that video feeds and files were made accessible to employees who had no right, nor any need, for access.

The Intercept quotes “sources alarmed by Ring’s dismal privacy practices” and states that, “Ring has a history of lax, sloppy oversight when it comes to deciding who has access to some of the most precious, intimate data belonging to any person.”

The big issues of the report revolve around 2016 and Ring’s Ukraine-based research and development team, who it is reported, had “unfettered access to a folder on Amazon’s S3 cloud storage service that contained every video created by every Ring camera around the world.”
