If you can’t trust Airport Security, who can you trust?
The latest to suffer an identity theft breach – the innovative CLEAR system that speeds frequent travelers through airport security by collecting personal data, doing an extensive background check and issuing smart cards. Stolen from a “locked” room in San Francisco airport was a laptop with the data for 33,000 travelers.
This line from the slashdot report was priceless:
The company has now decided that it might be a good idea to encrypt the data in their systems.
Thanks to oracletechnet for bringing this to my attention.
