Einstein … Say Aaah!

The balance among the privacy of individuals, the security of the nation and the safety of its citizens continues to be very difficult to achieve. We value greatly our right to privacy, including our ability to choose who can access our personal information. Consequently, we get very concerned at even the hint that government might be accessing information about us. Yet it has been demonstrated time-and-time again that we willingly give up personal information on our own for what might be considered trivial rewards. This dual standard can be a source of concern and confusion. Our lawmakers in Congress go to great lengths to try to force the protection of information that identifies us and of which disclosure might result in fraudulent and other nefarious activities. Unfortunately, many of the resulting laws and regulations are usually only minimally effective since they address the ID theft issue at the possible expense of other equally important security initiatives.
