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: DHS Buys Phone Location Data, Skirting Fourth Amendment; Report: DMVs Sell Your Personal Information For Millions Of Dollars; The California Consumer Privacy Act explained; and IRS Launches “Identity Theft Central” Webpage.
