Privacy and security 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 security, often without our situational awareness. Four highlights from this week: Social Security and Medicare scam calls heating up – not just targeted at seniors; How to Wipe a Hard Drive (especially important when you upgrading to a new hard drive or computer); A secure relationship with passwords means not being attached to how you pick them; and Internet Privacy: Additional Federal Authority Could Enhance Consumer Protection and Provide Flexibility.
Marcus P. Zillman’s annotated guide is a selective listing of elder and senior resources and sites on the Internet.
