Q: BECAUSE ALL OF OUR PERSONAL INFORMATION WAS ACCESSED IN THE EQUIFAX SECURITY BREACH, IS THERE ANY POINT TO BEING CAREFUL WITH YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?

A: When you leave your house, I assume you lock all of the doors, close all the windows. This is despite the fact that every day thousands of homes are broken into by throwing a rock through a window, picking a lock, knocking down the door, or driving a car through a wall.

Or how about when your body becomes ill. Do you simply throw up your hands and say well, death will come to me at some point, might as well give up now. Or, do you see your doctor and get treated?

Everything in life is a cat and mouse game. Don’t give up just because the chase is on. For some of us, this adds some interest or excitement to the game.

It is important to continue your security and privacy protection in all that you do. Both in the analog as well as the digital world.
