Edith Marcus passed away recently. You may never have heard of Edith; she was a private person in the best sense of the phrase. While Edith did make use of technology, she was keenly aware of the personal information she shared, who she shared It with, and what others did with the information. For privacy professionals, that is her legacy.
In full disclosure, Edith Marcus was my cousin and was 92 when she passed. She lived an amazing life from her escape from Nazi Germany as a child with her mother and grandmother to learning English by going to the movies while attending New York City schools to taking part in the birth of the state of Israel to being part of the introduction of computers to a Big 8 accounting firm.
