Pete Recommends Weekly highlights on cyber security issues, February 5, 2022

Privacy and cybersecurity 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 online security, often without our situational awareness. Five highlights from this week: The modern workplace: Will remote tech workers tolerate being monitored?; How to Protect Yourself From Common Scams; Academic Journal Claims it Fingerprints PDFs for ‘Ransomware,’ Not Surveillance; Security agency director urges governors to teach cybersecurity basics; Best Password Manager Reviews; and Democratic Lawmakers Call for Ban of Surveillance Advertising.
