Privacy is a right in most cases, but is also a responsibility for individuals and business to protect. Private information is valuable and sought after by criminals and unscrupulous companies that want your information for marketing and other reasons. Private information is anything that can identify a person: name, address, phone number, social security number, photographs, medical records, bank information, services you use, preferred spots to travel and even the airlines you use to get there, etc. People often take their privacy for granted when using the internet and social networking sites, but the issue is becoming more important than ever. Ignoring the risk and not protecting your private information can be a costly learning experience. The privacy battle has begun.
