Security and privacy are often seen at loggerheads. After all, if you can control access based on identity, you know a lot about the people whose access you track.

Technology is a great thing, it allows us to store data and other personal information throught the different softwares that are used in the workplace. However, privacy is a great issue. Financial, health, background, and other personal information should only be allowed to be seen or used by those who have a direct need for it. I think more institues should reconsider their privacy methods such as entrances to facilities or departments and the availability of private information on programs used to store data in the workplace. I would definitely recommend such a service.
