first_img 31SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Having grown up with technology, Millennials should arguably be the demographic most aware of the need to protect their personal information on desktops and mobile devices. However, TransUnion, one of the nation’s major credit reporting agencies, found this is not the case. In fact, TransUnion concluded Millennials are at a significantly higher risk for identity theft than older generations.At the heart of Millennials’ increased risk of identity theft is their often careless use of technology. TransUnion found 86 percent of Millennials save bank account details on their smartphones. In addition, 84 percent of Millennials surveyed admitted to using public Wi-Fi to perform online banking transactions or check accounts with sensitive financial information. Interestingly, despite their seemingly relaxed approach to cybersecurity, 49 percent of Millennials say they are worried about identity theft.By comparison, 36 percent of Baby Boomers cited cybercrime as a concern, and 50 percent store sensitive financial information on their devices. What’s more, 54 percent of Baby Boomers access their bank accounts via public Wi-Fi. continue reading »last_img read more

first_img Tweet 38 Views   no discussions Share Share Guyana’s Police Commissioner Henry Green, who is facing rape allegationsGEORGETOWN, Guyana — Guyana’s Police Commissioner Henry Green has been placed on leave following allegations that he violently raped and falsely imprisoned a thirty-four year old mother of two at gun-point.Guyana’s government-run news agency, GINA, reported on Saturday that President Donald Ramotar had placed Green on leave pending the outcome of the rape investigation.The woman, the wife of a Guyana Defence Force officer, said the incident occurred at a guesthouse, for which she said Green had keys to a room.Green has been previously accused of rape during President Desmond Hoyte’s administration. He was a senior superintendent at the time, and was reportedly sent on leave but reinstated after the investigation allegedly stalled over a lack of evidence.Green’s US visa was revoked in 2006 by the US government for alleged involvement with criminals, including drug lords. The then US Ambassador to Guyana in 2006 warned then President Bharrat Jagdeo not to appoint Green as police commissioner, as he was possibly under DEA investigation and could be indicted by the US Justice Department.By Caribbean News Now contributorcenter_img Sharing is caring!
