Privacy Trust Survey Shows Public Has Concerns

Today the WSJ reported on a the results of privacy study conducted last month by the Ponemon Institute, an organization “dedicated to advancing ethical information and privacy management practices in business and government.” There is no link available to the text of the study. However the article states that its author, Larry Ponemon, “a pioneer in the development of privacy audits” found that “of more than “5,500 individuals contacted last month, 36% of respondents agreed with the statement that [the Department of] Homeland Security is “committed to protecting the privacy of my personal information.” Forty-three percent in the study disagreed, while 21% were unsure.”
