The best way to protect personal information is never to disclose it. But that’s impossible in today’s information age. We give personal information to businesses and governments in any number of transactions. Each time, we are forced to trust those who receive our information to safeguard it. Is this trust justified? Can we reasonably expect the custodians of our data to take the steps necessary to safeguard our information? Or is that hope a pipe dream?
