WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - I can't imagine going back to a world--a scant 20 years ago--without the internet. It's changed the way we approach so many things: banking to tax preparation, college applications to information searches, vacation planning to work projects. You name it--we are on an information superhighway getting faster by the day.
On the other hand, we cant' seem to go a week anymore without stories about the growing downside of our interconnected world. The latest example: a cyber-fight that is slowing internet searches worldwide.

ID theft, stolen tax return refunds, corporate hacking, alleged hacking by the Chinese government against U.S. targets... the list gets bigger all the time. It is a reminder to jealously guard your personal information as a first line of protection. That and hope the geniuses devising new ways to shield our cyber-world outnumber the ones trying to plunder it.
