On the Grid
As a participant in modern society, you are "on the grid". Almost anything you do creates a data point that is in turn aggregated, combined and evaluated. You almost never have control over what happens with this data and who ends up with it and to what purpose.
Fraud is alarmingly on the rise. It is now useful for a criminal half way around the world to know your zip code, if you might be lonely, or perhaps a traveler. These data points about you might mark you as a target for any variety of crimes from simple extortion to sophisticated deception.
Into the Dark
The Internet has a corner called the "Dark Web". It provides anyone who ventures there near complete anonymity. This can be used for noble causes but unfortunately it also empowers criminals around the world unlike any other time in history. We all live in a new era of cyber crime.
From monitoring, to prevention to breach planning - the task of protecting yourself and your whole family from cyber crime is complex. There are so many ways you are exposed that you may not have even thought about. That's why it matters to hire a personal cyber risk consultant.
