PRIVACY LAWS AND PROTECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
Privacy Laws and Protection of Personal Information
The protection of personal and confidential information is tremendously important to U.S. citizens and organizations. The security of a private citizen’s information and personal effects is specifically addressed in the Constitution and in the Bill of Rights. In modern times, the Internet has provided a venue where information about individual users is gathered, stored, analyzed, and reported. This information is sometimes used by organizations to make better tactical and strategic business decisions. Considering the large amounts of data collected by the government and private industries, there are huge gaps in existing protection laws.Review the article “Is Privacy Possible in 2020?” or select another case and provide the link to it in your writing and on the reference page.Write a 3–5 page paper based on the information from the above link with supporting research activities.
