Cyber Security

Cybersecurity—Security Is An Illusion…Rick Loek
In or around 1996 I was excited to be learning a new programming language, Java. This new language was very much an infant. I was at the first developer conference having lunch with the chief security person. I started asking questions about security. He says to me, “Rick, security is an illusion. At best there are levels of security.” What did he mean? Basically you can do what you know to do to protect your computer and your identity, but you are still exposed. My late father once had some odd activity on his credit report. I requested that he call the credit agency and freeze his account. At that time they would freeze the account for free. If you called to unfreeze it they may or may not access a fee. I found this page to be loaded with useful information on protecting yourself from scammers.
