Pete Recommends – Weekly highlights on cyber security issues February 1, 2020

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: Ring Doorbell App Packed with Third-Party Trackers; How Corporate Lawyers Made It Harder to Punish Companies That Destroy Electronic Evidence; Jeff Bezos Phone Hacking – WhatsApp Hack – Is WhatsApp Safe?; and 8 cities that have been crippled by cyberattacks — and what they did to fight them.
