The Green Sheet, Inc.Unsettling links

I read your article "Data breaches, more than bad publicity" with much interest. I'm even more interested in how much flak you will receive from various organizations and individuals in the payments industry objecting to your link between terrorism and credit card fraud.

We published a report and discussed this linkage in our Security Summit back in September 2007, and we were branded a fear monger by various entities in the industry - including one of the card brands.

Hopefully you'll receive better acceptance with educating people in our industry than we experienced, because it is still an issue.

Thank you for your thoughts regarding "Data breaches, more than bad publicity," published in The Green Sheet, Feb. 23, 2009, issue 09:02:02. We are sorry to learn of your having been censored for broaching a topic that is germane to the discussion of data breaches. Perhaps times have changed in the last couple of years. So far, we have not been taken to task for mentioning terrorism in the context of credit card fraud.
