The Devil in Your Details

Want your privacy invaded? Just take a trip abroad. Despite criticisms, the DHS is standing by most of the measures of their "Automated Targeting System." Even if they decide you're innocent, they'll store your personal information for 15 years.

What really caught my eye was the name of DHS' chief privacy officer. Here's a quote from the AP article:

'"ATS does not replace human decision-making," said Hugo Teufel III, the department's chief privacy officer.'

The guy's name is German for "devil". How ironic is that?
