Pete Recommends – Weekly highlights on cyber security issues February 9, 2019

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. Four highlights from this week: Microsoft Security Lead Outlines the Perils of Still Using Internet Explorer; No more robocalls: How to block unwanted calls from iPhone, Android; How your health information is sold and turned into ‘risk scores’; and The Best Websites to Find out If You’ve Been Hacked.
