The information technology advancements of the 21st century are driving the convergence of law, policy, and ethics regarding the controversial meaning and value of privacy. Exponentially growing data capture and retention capabilities are outpacing laws and policies concerning individual rights to privacy and risk crossing ethical lines.

NETPRAETOR.com will only promote and feature articles on products and services it has judged as respecting individual privacy rights.
