EPIC Privacy Threat Index

EPIC has announced its privacy threat index “to track the growing threat to privacy resulting from the expansion of government surveillance.” (pr) (via Life, Law, Libido)
One cool thing about this is that the image is hosted at EPIC, so when (if ever) the privacy threat index is raised or lowered, the change will show up here. At the time of this writing, the threat was “Elevated”.

A word about the potential irony of supporting a pro-privacy group immediately after advocating to have all of my personal information stored on a credit card (on a website that makes it very easy to find information about me): I value the right to privacy, I just don’t value mine that much.

  1. Hey Andrew,
    Great site! Thanks for linking to me — I wanted to let you know that the link appears to be wrong, though — for both me and EPIC. Anyway, keep up the good work.
