Public Access to Court Records Protecting Personal Sensitive Information

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

This mp3 audio download program addresses an important phenomenon of the digital age: the dissemination of sensitive personal information in "public" records. Courthouse records are open to the public because transparency and accountability are essential to our democratic system of government. But many of these records contain sensitive personal information, such as Social Security numbers, medical and financial data, and information about minor children. Data mining companies purchase court records in bulk, using them for credit checks, employee background checks, and other purposes unknown to the citizens who are affected by the disclosure of the information. This means there are significant privacy concerns associated with court records, especially when they are disclosed in digital form. The speakers for this mp3 audio download program include privacy advocates and experts on public access to government records.
