So I am sitting in the lounge at Toronto airport waiting for a flight to Washington. Behind me a fellow passenger is phoning around her credit card companies to tell them she is going to the US and will use her credit cards. In each case she is listed her full number, data of birth and all the normal identification material. Were I so inclined this could be very useful information. To my right an Executive from a major consultancy firm is writing in plain view a proposal which includes layoff plans for a US corporation. I’ve also in the last hour overheard conversations relating to promotions, sales, deals etc. etc. I remember several years and two employers ago traveling on the train up to Bradford and sitting next to a rival bid team discussing their entire sales strategy for an outsourcing bid; I simply sat and took notes. Are people simply not aware that there are other people near them?
