In our modern world, we disclose personal information to a myriad of government and commercial entities. Every time you sign up for a website, or fill out an online or paper form, you are usually divulging personal information. Twenty years ago, this was not a large problem. But now it is. .
Corporations, government offices, and even small local businesses often maintain huge databases which contain your private information. Although there are both federal and state laws in regards to the privacy of this information, these laws sometimes do not work. The recent Sony PlayStation matter is a prime example. According to published media reports, literally millions of people had their own private information stolen from Sony’s computer network.
These sorts of events create prime opportunities for hackers, identity thieves, and even common criminals to misuse your own personal data.
