Westin, Alan F. Landmark Study of Computer–Privacy Problems Completed (1972): Communications of the ACM, Vol. 15, Issue 12, December 1972, p1096-1097. The article presents information about a study on the computer-privacy issue. The study has been completed by the National Academy of Sciences project on computer data banks, headed by Alan F.

Westin and his associates have discovered what they call "factual misunderstandings" about the computer's invasion of privacy, almost a folklore that has developed in the past few years. The use of the social security number is one example. Other misconceptions discussed in the book include the belief that bringing in a computer inevitably leads organizations to: collect more detailed and intrusive information about individuals; consolidate confidential information from previously separate files; and share confidential personal data with government agencies and private organizations that had not received it before. 1972 general
