National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace

Many of us do it without even blinking an eye. Internet services have become such as part of our daily lives that logging on to a network to complete work, check your bank account, shop for a new book or post a blog is second nature-- and what you’re providing in order to complete these tasks goes unnoticed. We have become accustomed to being asked for our personal information. Only in the last few years have major concerns over what is being provided online drawn national attention. Identity theft and cybercrime are on the rise around the world, so individuals need to pay particular attention to what information they are providing about themselves and with whom it is being shared online. This is no longer just a matter of personal privacy, but a matter of economic stability and national security.
