Pete Recommends – Weekly highlights on cyber security issues August 18 2018

Privacy and security issues impact every aspect of our lives – home, work, travel, education, health/medical, to name but a few. On a weekly basis Pete Weiss highlights articles and information that focus on the increasingly complex and wide ranging ways our privacy and security is diminished, often without our situational awareness. Note – two significant highlight of this week’s column: AP Exclusive: Google tracks your movements, like it or not; and Hackers can steal data from the enterprise using only a fax number. Although many assume fax machines are no longer in general use, think about your doctors and hospitals – they all continue to use them, as do many states, localities, the federal government, and courts.
