In this week's report, we will discuss the most long-term and effective actions that we can take as parents to insure our kids' identity and future is their own, and not completely under the control of inscrutable algorithms on behalf of governments, big corporations, criminals and creeps. These solutions are simple, extraordinarily affordable, and will work for a lifetime.
It's hard to get our kids to adjust their behavior when it comes to their online activities.
The good news is that you can still have a huge effect on their privacy, protection of their identification and even physical security, with some easy and very inexpensive measures.
The solutions require little if any change, and once acted upon, will work for a lifetime.
How to Protect Your Childrens' Right to Their Own Identity.
2014 may be the last chance to be pre-emptive and act proactively, to shore up our family members' personal information and digital identity.
Shore up your family's identification, personal information and online security.
Teen ID theft victims and their families have little way of knowing the crime is occurring. For children and teens, this lack of awareness can be even more destructive. In most cases, it’s not until a child turns 18 and attempts to establish his or her own credit that he or she discovers the fraudulent activity.
By this time, the child’s credit history can be significantly tarnished, making the process of eradicating any false activity extraordinarily difficult, time consuming and it typically takes many years to resolve.

The year 2014 may well go down in the history books as the year that extortion attacks went mainstream.

As individuals, families and businesses, our risk surface is far more broad in the digital age, than at any other time before. We can be targeted, or simply a random victim of crimes that have anonymous perpetrators with invisible presences from untrackable locations that can be anywhere on earth, regardless of who you are or where you are.
It's a fact of life now, and for the future of our children, that the stakes are high and getting higher, the risks of a breach are going up at exponential rates of growth, and in the digital age, technology is the hub of everything we do.
So let's get right to it; here are 4, very solid measures you can take that will profoundly impact your family's security, privacy and ability to have a meaningful level of control over your risk environment in an age of constant digital innovation and advancement.
