More than 17 million Americans reported last year that their identity had been stolen. That’s 7 percent of the nation’s adult population. Complicated passwords and aggressive virus protection are no longer enough to protect consumers. Security breaches at Target, JPMorgan Chase and the U.S. Office of Personnel Management have resulted in the theft of billions of personal records, including fingerprints. Electronic medical records are also being hacked. Diane and guests discuss how to make yourself less vulnerable to hackers and what do to if your sensitive data is stolen.
