Identity theft grows every year. So we must educate ourselves and fight back! The credit card companies institute chip cards and thieves shift to using RFID technology to nab your credit card info to make online purchases. Corporate America is locking down their networks so thieves target huge healthcare systems in massive cyber breaches using sophisticated methods or just good old-fashioned plants which starts waves of medical identity theft, which is costly and can be deadly. Phishing scams are at an all-time high - we educate but the identity thieves find better technologies and more intriguing stories to make it look legit. Not to mention all of our info is in the cloud! This all brings up so many questions - some ordinary, some extraordinary and some futuristic. Will good win over evil? When will it happen to me?
