If no one said All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing.”, then someone should have, because it is true. The same thing goes for bullies and injustice. As scary as it can be, if you are going to consider yourself human, then you have to speak out for what it right.

An article in the Sydney Moring Herald on 14 July 2012 provides examples where companies that do not protect their clients’ privacy suffer the consequences http://newsstore.smh.com.au/apps/viewDocument.ac?page=1&sy=smh&kw=Privacy+piracy&pb=smh&dt=selectRange&dr=day&so=relevance&sf=text&sf=headline&rc=10&rm=200&sp=nrm&clsPage=1&docID=SMH120714OC6OH8US4TB
The article refers to recent privacy breaches by Telstra, Vodafone and Sonny PlayStation. It goes on to report Australians lost $1.4 billion to fraudsters in 2010-11, people aged 35 to 49 were most at risk of identity fraud and quotes Matthew Strassberg from Veda “People don't realise that with only a small amount of information an identity thief can take out a second mortgage on the target's house or open a line of credit to buy goods.”
Companies are continuingly trying to find ways to get a competitive edge on their rivals, yet fail to see that by being able to assure their clients they are better at protecting their personal information they are giving up an advantage that not only would impress their current clients, but entice others to do business with them.
