Google: the danger was already there, you just didn’t see it

Here’s an interesting article on Google’s recent experiments with indexing the “invisible web”:

Google: A Clear & Present Danger to Corporate Data Privacy

My take: yes it may cost companies some money to correct exposure of their supposedly private data – but if Google can index it by the approach they are taking, it was never private in any meaningful sense. Chances are, those companies’ competitors already have copies of it.

If your data is meant to be private it is your responsibility to make it so, not Google’s.
