Personal Privacy in an Information Society. Government Access toPersonal Records and "Private Papers"
Discussion of the need to protect individuals from threats to personal privacy often conjures up ominous images of government agents conducting surreptitious investigations and compiling dossiers. Such images come forcefully to mind when one is concerned, as the Commission is, with preventing improper inquiry into and disclosure of records about i

The third competing interest the Commission identified is the interest in preventing and prosecuting crime. Organizations do and should have the means of protecting themselves from suspected fraud in insurance claims, fraudulent use of credit cards, multiple welfare applications, and the like. Organizations, both private and public, exchange infor
The second competing societal value the Commission identified is freedom of information. In enacting the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) in 1966, 13 and strengthening it eight years later, the Congress gave expression to society's strong interest in opening the records of Federal government agencies to public inspection.
One need only glance at the dramatic changes in our country during the last hundred years to understand why the relationship between organizational record keeping and personal privacy has become an issue in almost all modern societies.
