Issue No. 08 - August (1979 vol. 12)
Two out of three Americans are concerned about the threat to their personal privacy posed by computer-operated data banks in the hands of business and government. They want something done to give individuals practical rights of privacy, confidentiality, and access to records of themeselves. These are the key findings of a Louis Harris survey, as reported by Prof. Alan F. Westin of Columbia University, during the plenary session on computers and society. The survey was sponsored as a public service by Sentry Insurance.
