Pete Recommends – Weekly highlights on cyber security issues December 1 2018

Privacy and security issues impact every aspect of our lives – home, work, travel, education, health and medical records – 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 technology is used to compromise and diminish our privacy and security, often without our situational awareness. Note – four significant highlights of this week’s column: Protecting Against Identity Theft; Half of all Phishing Sites Now Have the Padlock; How to Protect Yourself From Cellphone Phishing Attacks; and CPAP breathing machines – insight into how your sleeping data is subject to surveillance as well as discussion on insurance pricing schemes.
