I just spent an hour talking to Dan Solove from GWU. Dan is the author of The Digital Person: Technology And Privacy In The Information Age, a great book on privacy. Dan has a recent paper that outlines what specifically should be done to better regulate information privacy. The paper gives 16 specific suggestions. State legislators wondering what they can do to help with the identity theft problem ought to read it carefully. My interview with Dan will appear at IT Conversations in the coming weeks.
