AG Gonzales Says Reduce SSN Access

by @ 6:56 pm. Filed under Indexing, Current Events

US Attorney General Alberto Gonzales spoke earlier this week on interim measures being proposed by the federal government’s Identity Theft Task Force. Although the Task Force’s full report will not be issued until November, several measures were recommended now. “We are recommending that the public sector look seriously at ways to reduce access to Social Security Numbers.” The Middlesex North Registry of Deeds is in the midst of a massive redaction project in which we seek to identify and remove social security numbers from our online records. This has been a labor intensive effort but after about a month, we are back to 1991. In case we miss anything, we plan to add a “social security number redaction request” form to our website. This would permit someone who discovers that their SSN is on our website to ask us to remove it which we would do promptly.
