unfair tribunals in the digital age have only gotten unwieldier. With companies coming together to crack down on fraud, data breaches, and fraudulent usage of its own platforms, it’s not enough to have unfair tribunals. Companies need to be equipped with technology that can detect, prevent, and correct these issues before they become a problem. Wrongful-arrest technology is one such technology that can help identify and remove wrongful arrests from a company’s records as early as possible in an investigation. This technology scans user accounts for any suspicious activity—such as spam or account monitoring—and flags it as an issue before further investigation takes place. If the company then raises red flags about how its users are being used for marketing or other purposes, this red flag signals regulators that there’s something wrong with the company’s data security and its software or platform should be updated accordingly.
Where to begin with a review of the fair tribunals technology mandatory in today’s digital world
The concept of fair tribunals dates back to the early 1900s, when the United States Senate Committee on Rules and Administration recommended to the President and Secretary of the Department of Justice that “an efficient, effective, and completely fair system of justice” be established after the Supreme Court decision in United States v. American Federation of Labor. In a report made public in 2011, the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, which oversees the Fair and Accurate Courts System, defined the purpose of a fair tribunal as “a court that dispels the notion that the general rule in our society is that criminals are released without consequences.” In a letter to the President and Secretary of the Department of Justice, the Fair and Accurate Courts System Board, which oversees the system, added that the “court’s primary mission is to promote the full and equal enjoyment of the right to a full and free trial by jury in court.”
The impact of “wrongful arrests”
The impact of “wrongful arrests” is that it creates a false sense of security and independence among the public at large. As a result, people turn to the courts to complain about unfair or inaccurate court rulings, and they often file lawsuits that claim to be “tribunals” or “courts”—often in the name of a business or other corporate entity. In a recent study, it was found that about one-fifth of all wrongful-arrest lawsuits filed worldwide (20 percent) target the courts’ independence from the federal government. Some of these complaints also claim that the courts operate without broad oversight, that they are unable to make sure certain types of material information are being disclosed by public officials (such as financial transactions), and that they overrule state law.
How wrongful-arrest technology works with platforms
The Fair and Accurate Courts System also protects users by creating a digital shield that makes it virtually impossible for anyone to find malicious accounts on the platform and bring them to justice. As part of this protection, the platform sends notifications when someone logs onto it with an account that has been previously approved for access. Those notifications also include information such as the user’s current location, payment information, and account property. When users find a suspicious activity on the platform, they are immediately given the option to report it to the platform security team. If the user is convicted on the basis of a suspicious activity report, the platform immediately sends an email with the user’s address, phone number, and other personal information.
Why companies are buying this technology
Some of the most successful companies in the online marketing industry—such as Google, Facebook, and Google Plus—have long focused on serving their users better through technology. Now, a number of leading Internet companies are aiming to do the same by porting their old-school technology to the new medium of digital advertising. Google has been exploring digital advertising as a way to meet customer needs for some time. In early 2011, Google released a free app called Google Ads on iOS that allowed businesses to promote their services and products on the Google platform, and it also allowed them to target their ads more precisely. Google Ads also featured a new, stunning interface, which became a popular visual aid in campaigns where the company was promoting its products. Google also made it possible for advertisers to create their own ads on Google Ads, and it now includes over 80 different types of ad formats. As part of the deal with Facebook, Google released the Facebook Ads app for Android in 2012. Like Google Ads, Facebook Ads also allowed businesses to create ads that would work on the platform, and it also allowed them to target their ads more precisely. However, unlike Google Ads, Facebook Ads also allowed advertisers to create ad formats that were specific to their products and aimed at targeting specific audiences—such as, the ability to create “like” or “discuss” ads when someone clicks on a product.
There’s no question that the rise of digital advertising and the need to reach new customers and non-traditional audiences are leading to a massive change in the way we consume media. This shift has been widely covered in the media and public debate, and large-scale efforts are underway to reduce the impact of digital media on consumers. Fortunately, there are technologies that can help mitigate the impact of digital media on consumers. The Fair and Accurate Courts System, for example, protects users from false information and false arrests. The platform-based Wrongful Arrest technology is also set to receive a major update.
