Pete Recommends Weekly highlights on cyber security issues, January 22, 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: IRS Will Soon Require Selfies for Online Access; Ransomware and phishing: Google Drive will now warn you about suspicious files of bills and identity documents; How to avoid seeing yourself on video calls. Sometimes you can’t turn your camera off but you still want to stay out of view; and Bill to Ban Surveillance Advertising Introduced.
