Real Life Example #1

Some authorized computer system users at the Atlanta office of the IRS were found to be reading records of well known individuals (movie stars, members of congress, etc.) to satisfy their curiosity. Even though no dissemination of the information outside of IRS offices was proven AND the users were authorized to have access to that type of information, the specific access was outside of duties assigned to the individuals and was not an authorized use of IRS files. As a result, involved individuals were punished officially and the public furor led to a significant reduction in funding for new IRS computer systems.
