Thank you for your research and this blog. It is invaluable to back up policy with facts!

Dr. Ponemon,
Your company's research in the area of privacy trust of U.S. government agencies has become an invaluable resource in my military duties assessing the policy risks involved with DoD/US Gov strategy to protect our critical national cyberspace infrastructure.
The public/private/govt partnerships required for this activity are critically dependent on the perceptions of public trust held by the government institutions tasked with carrying out these monumental security tasks.
Unfortunately, many of the leaders of these organizations are either unaware of your rankings or pretend they are of no value when they are ranked near the bottom (DHS, NSA, etc) so keep up the great work getting this type of information into the national debate.
