One thing's for certain. When you deal in information, you need talented folks in PR, to reassure the population.

Incidentally that reminds of a beautiful newspaper photo I saw a few years back, of the Canadian privacy commissionaire standing ankle-deep in printed personal health records that had been dumped on a public street.

There was a film that was being shot in Toronto; it was set in New York, so the production company ordered some waste paper from a shredding company to litter-up a street and make it look more authentic. Due to a mix-up, the paper shredding company delivered print copies of the health records of several thousand individuals (which they were supposed to have destroyed), instead of the waste paper.
