This web page from the National Institute of Standards and Technology provides information, webcasts, videos, and workshops on protecting your privacy and identity. "A critical element of the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC) is to substantially improve the privacy of online transactions and support civil liberties like freedom of speech and freedom of association. Right now the Internet is not a very private place. Passwords are the main form of account protection. But cyber criminals can use simple tool kits that break them or can trick people into giving up their passwords with phishing emails and spoofed websites. Additional security features usually require consumers to share all kinds of personal information like home towns, favorite books, and pet names. There's a better way to put people in more control of their personal information and protect their online accounts."
