Airport security fast lane company: where’s the customer data?

“Federal lawmakers want to know what’s going to happen to the sensitive data of more than 150,000 travelers left stranded after the country’s leading airport secruity fast-lane company ceased operation last week.

The House Homeland Security committee asked the TSA in a letter last Thursday to explain what it knows about the privacy of the data of the 165,000 customers of the privately-issued Clear pass. Clear subscribers paid $200 annually to skip to the front of security lines at 20 of the countries largest airports, but they had to undergo a background check and turn over social security numbers, fingerprints and iris prints to get the card.”
