CONTACTPOINT AND eCAF -- The Risks
This film is the third in a series of three looking at UK government plans for two national children's databases: Contactpoint and eCAF.

We recommend that you watch 'Contactpoint' and 'eCAF' first.

Contactpoint, sometimes called the 'Children's Index', 'Information Sharing Index' or 'Children's Database', will be a central identity register of every under-18 in England together with details of all of the services that they use. Its cousin, the eCAF database will contain in-depth personal assessments of children and young people using any service other than basic education and health care -- that's around 50% of under-18s.

Together with information security experts, child protection specialists and children's rights advocates, ARCH has spent the last 4 years trying to get the government to understand that large, centralised databases of children's private information are a dangerous and misguided idea. These films explain why.

The cast list includes Professor Ross Anderson, Dr Ian Brown, Dr Liz Davies, Shami Chakrabarti and Terri Dowty. We are very grateful to Kate Munro for all the work she put into making the films, and to Glyn Wintle of the Open Rights Group for converting them into the right format.

In 2006 the Foundation for Information Policy Research produced a full report for the Information Commissioner, 'Children's Databases: Safety and Privacy'. This can be downloaded from: http://www.fipr.org/press/061122kids....
