Foreword from the Editors

In our digital age, technology has brought attention to “privacy” in unprecedented ways.  And privacy, although a term frequently used, has no set meaning.  Ready electronic access to information, for instance, raises questions about the misuse of public records (and, more broadly, whether one can or should ever be forgotten), while lack of access raises concerns about government abuse going unobserved.  Near-daily stories of data breaches now have a connection to matters that are surprisingly close to home, as the “internet of things” means that even our home appliances are collecting and sharing our goings-on.  Businesses need to consider not only whether they are adequately protected against cyberattacks, but also whether they have adequate cyber insurance in place. In this special issue, we reflect on these timely and compelling questions.
