A personal website by Khürt Williams, with inchoate ramblings on technology, photography, beer, and geekery.
Stories like the spectacular data breach that befell Sony last year mean that most of us now understand that cyber criminals actively access and trade our personal data. A less well-known consequence is that increasing volumes of it – credit card details, social security numbers and online accounts – are also passing through the hands of investigators from organizations like the FBI.
I’m ambivalent about the whole thing. I’m concerned that the FBI may have access to all this information about me but .. I’m happy that I’ll get notification if any of my data is part of an investigation.
