"Identity theft and cyber spying scams are becoming too commonplace during our lifetime, so it's important to remind the public just how guarded they need to be when it comes to protecting their personal information," said Jim Stickley, CTO and co-founder of TraceSecurity. "While TraceSecurity's business is helping organizations improve their physical and virtual security as it relates to the protection of sensitive data, it is just as important that we help the people that matter most to our clients -- their customers."
