How Much is your Digital Privacy Worth to you?

cookiesHave you ever tried searching for yourself on Google? Sure, it might seem like fun to see how many times you come up in a Google search. You’ll find your Facebook profile, a talkback you posted a few years ago and some whitepages.com results. Nothing too interesting there. But when you think about it, the very fact that you do come up means you’re being tracked. And it’s all thanks to cookies.

Victim of an Identity Fraud Incident? Do These 6 Things

What to do in case of identity fraudIn a past post we discussed how to keep yourself safe from identity fraud. Our ever-increasing reliance on “all things digital” creates the perfect storm for hackers to steal not only passwords and logins, but our very identities, too. Previously, we highlighted some of the most important tactics you need to be aware of to keep your personal details secure in a world that seems to hemorrhage information. With the right habits and tools, you lessen your chances of becoming part of an ID fraud statistic.

But sometimes, you can be doing all the right things, and through no fault of your own, wind up compromised, as was seen in the too-many-to-count hacks of 2015. Last year was truly a watershed year in terms of hacks and it’s estimated that over one half of American adults had their identity compromised in some way. If you were one of those people, there are some things you can do to minimize the impact of the loss of that private information. And when it comes to your identity, time isn’t really on your side. Don’t spend precious moments wondering what to do next, just get going with anything and everything you can to reduce the damage.

The gift NO ONE wanted to receive on December 25th

Email Virus

 

Let’s take a trip back in time. Let’s go back to December 1999, a mere 16 years ago. And my oh my, have things changed! 16 years ago, holiday shopping meant going to the mall (not shopping on your phone), and there was no such thing as a Grande Chestnut Praline Latte. There was also no YouTube and no social media, and computer viruses were a lot less advanced than they are today. December 1999 was also the month in which Prilissa, a virus found on three continents, was programmed to cause havoc if opened on Christmas Day.
