This is a useful presentation of security and privacy issues in relation to the schema of the data lifecycle, and it opens many issues for discussion.

I'll launch one issue for discussion: Edward Snowden. In my view, Snowden's actions in exposing U.S. government surveillance (and plans for expanding surveillance) of the U.S. population have been unequivocally heroic. 

I don't think government agencies and personnel necessarily have all of our best interests as a top priority. Private citizens can take actions that uphold and advance those interests, and I think Snowden did just that. 

Snowden did this at considerable disadvantage to his own personal safety and lifestyle. I hardly think this merits considering him a candidate for being labeled as a "schmuck".
