Lipstick on Your Caller

The New York Times is running another article on the problem with companies that sell cell-phone records (Lipstick on Your Caller - New York Times), but the most significant "action item" from the piece is a quote from Marc Rotenberg of EPIC:

'The bigger problem is that all this information is lying around,' said Marc Rotenberg, the executive director of the Electronic Privacy Information Center. 'If companies can't keep the information secure, then they shouldn't keep it.'

That's advice that bears repeating: The Canadian Privacy Law Blog: Don't keep the data that you don't need.
