Privacy Continues to Be a Battleground in DC

By December 17, 2012

Follow me on:

Identity theft is so intertwined with the idea of privacy that a good portion of what I cover is focused on privacy protection and privacy laws - after all, you can't protect yourself if you don't know what the law says you have a right to do... or what companies that hold your information must do with it.

Law enforcement agencies have stepped up their efforts to gain access to private information during investigations, with their recent bid for exceptions to recent bills that have hit Capitol Hill. But there is growing evidence that there is a larger plan already in place.

Nothing you’ve mentioned sounds legal, but again, I’m not an attorney.
