The discussion about theses name headings brought up a concern for me.  The vitas included in our dissertations and theses typically include the place of birth and detailed date of birth.

We include this information in the 670 when creating name authority records.  I am concerned that a criminal could use this information to steal someone's identity.

Has anyone else had this concern?  If so, how did you address it?
