Privacy is a security issue

Security experts ask Obama for help
A band of security and privacy experts is calling on President Obama to create a federal clearinghouse of information about data breaches -- and make that intelligence accessible to companies, consumers and law enforcement to help stem identity theft.

The proposal comes in a report titled, The Perfect Storm: Why the New Administration Cannot Ignore Identity Theft(PDF), compiled by Adam Levin, Chairman and Co-Founder of Identity Theft 911; Jay Foley, co-founder of the Identity Theft Resource Center; Pam Dixon founder of World Privacy Forum; and Chris Hoofnagle, senior staff attorney at the Berkeley Center for Law and Technology.
