Across the digital world
Isn't it frightening to know just how much personal info we are actually trading across the digital world without our knowledge? We could become ever so complacent about our digital activities that we overlook the actual security behind them. We might see them as harmless activities but in actual fact, we are actually disclosing our most intimate secrets to the whole world wide web.

Hard versus soft copy
And folks, this is why there will always be people who will stick to paper and pen despite all of the technology in the world available at their fingertips. Sure it might be convenient to put all of your data into storage online, but if it's any information worth anything of value, you write it down and keep it under lock and key physically rather than on a network!

Re: Hard versus soft copy
Agree about 90% but in the connected world it is almost impossible to keep EVERYTHING offline.  I live with a secure (I Hope) cloud backup but generally have three hard drives (right, 3) that are TURNED OFF on my main system and turned on ONLY when I scan new data to them and then hard turn off again.  I know being on for a few seconds, well, a risk but you cannot live totally 100% SAFE in this world anymore.  Let's get did of Social Security numbers being personal identifiers for a start.  But I am protected nine times over for Ransomware, I could survive that with a ghost image of primary drive and 3 drives for backup restoration.
