Too Much Love

Interesting piece by Phillip Alexander in Security Park titled "The Dangers of Too Much Data Privacy"-- while I don't entirely agree with him, he brings ups some good points.

The private sector as a whole has not always been responsible stewards of the non-public personal information that consumer entrust to them. It is axiomatic that when the private sector fails to act responsibly, the public sector will enact regulations to mandate changes in behavior. The slew of highly publicized data breaches and the accompanying public outcry are at least partially responsible for the stampede of data privacy laws passed in recent years.

By the way, just in general Security Park has some cool stuff.
