Over at the IBM Center for the Business of Government Blog, Dan Chenok has posted an article about the privacy implications raised by a few recent reports and their implications for government managers.
Dan looks closely at:
- “Preliminary Staff Report” from the Federal Trade Commission (FTC)
- A “Green Paper” from the Department of Commerce entitled “Commercial Data Privacy and Innovation in the Internet Economy”
- The Administration’s June 2010 draft of the “National Strategy for Securing Online Transactions in Cyberspace” (NSTIC)
Dan points out that this focus on privacy affects government managers in several ways:
- Consumers in the private sector are also citizens who receive Government services.
- The Administration and the Congress are likely to increase focus, not decrease it.
- We are “one breach away” from reprioiritizing privacy closer to the top of our cyber-concerns.
