Cyber Crime: Why We're Behind And What We Can Do To Protect Ourselves

When it comes to internet crime, criminals are far ahead of law enforcement and the general public. As more and more hacks make headlines, we talk about our vulnerability as individuals and how to protect ourselves from a cyber attack.

Guests:

  • Marc Goodman is the author of Future Crimes: Everything is Connected, Everyone is Vulnerable, and What We Can Do About It.
  • Dr. Vijay Anand is the director of the cyber security degree program at Southeast Missouri State University in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.
When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. My email is steve@kcur.org.
Slow news days are a thing of the past. As KCUR’s news director, I want to cut through the noise, provide context to the headlines, and give you news you can use in your daily life – information that will empower you to make informed decisions about your neighborhood, your city and the region.
