“Recent news stories regarding the widespread theft of personal and financial information from the databases of several national retailers serves as a strong reminder that we need to continually educate ourselves so that we do our best to protect ourselves from these threats,” said Stern.
“As more of our population gets out into the cyber world, the potential for personal and financial harm continues to grow,” Katz said. “This is especially true for our children, as they become more tech-savvy on a daily basis
“With a little foresight, we can protect ourselves from many potential issues.”
