Re: Promising Career Path

Wait for it, wait for it: Michaels sued over possible data breach.

And yes, "digital forensic investigator" looks like an already hot job prospect that's just going to keep getting hotter.

data loss
One of the most common causes of data getting in the wrong hands is the loss of mobile devices that often contain a frightening amount of private information. I want to share a protection option that worked for me. Tracer tags let someone who finds your lost stuff contact you directly without exposing your private information.  I use them on almost everything I take when I travel after one of the tags was responsible for getting my lost laptop returned to me in Rome one time. You can get them at mystufflostandfound.com

Re: Killing debits
@Lorna even before all these huge breaches made the headlines, I was warned that debit cards are not very secure. The only time I ever used one for purchase was by mistake -- the chashier must have entered debit as a default.

Promising Career Path
Looking for a promising career path related to the growth of big data and online transactions? Try "digital forensic investigator," as mentioned above. I'm guessing this is a white-hot niche within the already hot, larger category of computer security.

Killing debits
At what point does all this breach news kill the willingness of consumers to enter PIN numbers to use debit cards? I never have done so, and just recently advised several family members to stop using debit.

That will cost banks and retailers -- and ultimately consumers -- money as CCs become the only game in town.
