Next: by the end of the year, some 106 million Blue Cross Blue Shield consumers will have identity protection services that include credit monitoring, fraud detection and fraud resolution. We look at the costs, and whether this amounts to an ounce of prevention being worth a pound of cure. Plus, we'll take a tour of the visible internet infrastructure in Lower Manhattan with Ingrid Burrington, a fellow at the Data & Society Institute.
