Pete Recommends – Weekly highlights on cyber security issues, April 9, 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. Four highlights from this week: Blockchain can power up government processes, GAO says; How QR codes work and what makes them dangerous – a computer scientist explains; Thieves hit on a new scam: Synthetic identity fraud; and Report: One in four employees who made security mistakes lost their job.
