Overview

The Internet Age has created vast and ubiquitous databases of personal information in universities, corporations, government agencies, and doctors' offices.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Although much has been written on privacy and security as they relate, separately, to information and to information technology, this anthology is the first extended treatment of the two factors combined, with articles by top legal scholars in both fields. Securing Privacy in the Internet Age is an important book." —Helen Nissenbaum, New York University
