Anyone know what percentage of identity theft comes from an individual attack (e.g. stealing a wallet) vs. mass attacks (e.g. hacking into corporate databases)?
Seems to me that the latter types of crimes are the biggest problem. Should we choose what banks and businesses to do business with based on their reputation for data security?

what about lifelock and other internet i.d. theft companies? i can remember what palo alto was like before the inquisitive internet and cell phone devices, etc. all of this just cultivates more fear and paranoia, psychological disturbances, etc.

Will this session be recorded, and made available for the general public to view?
If not, why not?
