While the use of that information gathered can vary widely, stollen information from places like banks or credit bureau agencies leave hackers more room to commit identity theft. What’s worse is in those instances those hackers can continue to exploit that information and leverage it indefinitely.
As a month into the new year has passed, one thing that I urge people to do for this new month and onward is have better privacy protection. Every day there are more breaches and hacks happening to people. And what’s worse is that it stems from a poor mindset around cybersecurity.

While there are certainly dark elements to how information is used, businesses have assured us time and again that the information gathered is to help you experience the services to the fullest.
