Pete Recommends – Weekly highlights on cyber security issues, April 16, 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: Data From Friends and Strangers Show Where You Are; TSA’s Terrorist Watch List Comes for Amtrak Passengers; Facial recognition not required as tax ID – yet. But the tech spreads; You’re muted… or are you? Videoconferencing apps may listen even when mic is off; and Mismanaged Cloud Services Put User Data at Risk.
