First things first — let's make it a holiday

Congress passed a resolution yesterday making this coming Friday “National Data Privacy Day.” If the move, intended to raise awareness of data privacy issues at a national level, seems a little last-minute –which is somehow appropriate, considering how data privacy, while a major regulatory issue, often is addressed as an afterthought.

I think we need a parade. We can have themed floats: “Don’t lose Energy Department Lab Hard Drives in the Kitchenette” and “Don’t take Veteran medical records home on your laptop” are two that immediately spring to mind.
