Need help with my Computer Science question - I’m studying for my class.

PLEASE PUT YOUR SOURCE UNDER EACH QUESTION YOU HAVE ANSWERED.

The book you might need :

Chapter 3 The questions:

1- List both a UNIQUE advantage and disadvantage to the U.S. Laws of Interest to Information Security Professionals. Make sure to include a summary of the Law. You may use the same law but the advantage and disadvantage needs to be unique.

2- List an UNIQUE way to protect yourself from Identity Theft and comment on two other postings under this forum.

     the two other posting you need to just put comment on them are:

      a. 

A unique way to protect yourself from Identity Theft is to always watch for “Shoulder-surfers”. These are people who will look over your shoulder while at the ATM or anywhere to get your PIN number or anything they can get. To prevent this always work quickly while at ATMS or making transactions in public places and always cover the key pad with your hand when typing in your PIN.

      b.

Identity theft is a growing concern considering that the FTC “estimates that as many as nine million Americans” are at risk (Whitman, pg. 93). One unique way to protect your identity is too keep track of paperwork containing exclusive information about you including bills, bank statements, checks, credit reports and much more. As humans we accumulate a lot of paper containing our name and address, if it is retrieved by the wrong people our identity is at risk. Best way to protect your identity is to shred such paperwork before throwing it away and to keep track of important documents such as your birth certificate.
