In this episode of the Dudes n Beer podcast host Christopher Jordan is joined by Steven Bishop as well as special guest and former Special Agent (Retired) US Secret Service and Director of Organizational Education at The University of Texas at Austin, Center for Identity, Mr. R Sean McClesky. It happens more than a thousand times a day. Someone makes a purchase from a local merchant or online and their private information becomes compromised. Everything from personal email to home addresses, phone numbers, social security information, even credit card and bank account information can all be used to not only hack your identity, but to actually begin a new digital profile, making you a victim to the hustle known as identity theft. What can we do to protect ourselves? Are we more vulnerable online than in person, or are both forms of purchase just as likely to be hacked? Join the Dudes and Beer podcast for a revealing conversation regarding online security and protecting against identity theft this holiday season. This could be the most important podcast episode you could possibly hear before shopping online for the holidays.
