Welcome to the first edition of IdentityForce’s eBook, Protecting What Matters Most: Insights, Trends, and Perspectives on Protecting Your Digital World. By gathering some of the most impactful research, data predictions, news articles, analyst insights, and general knowledge around just how much our personal information is being shared through the entire connected digital world, we wanted to provide you with a single resource you can share with your family, friends, customers, and colleagues. With over 50 research and industry reports featured, along with some of our own primary research, Protecting What Matters Most will also provide you with ideas on how you can secure your digital footprint.
With virtually every retail transaction, online payment, social media post, online application, medical record, website registration, phone call, and email communication being captured and stored somewhere — now is the time to ensure you are well-informed about what’s happening in the digital world surrounding you, your family, your employees, and your customers. While organizations everywhere work hard to keep personal information secure, you’ll see in this eBook that it is never completely secure. Thus, we are each at risk of losing control of what we spend every day of our lives creating: our identity.
