New technologies, new challenges. Identity theft is one of major problems in Cybercrime apart from child pornography. When someone steals your credit card information and have access to your bank account is one serious problem. But as our digital identity gets "real" on modern internet which increasingly represents real people then your digital identity is also threatened. What if your facebook, twiteer or blog account gets stolen? It is not as yet considered your ID and not protected as yet as such - it is protected by policies of the system that is if there are any to protect you. So how do we deal with digital identity theft? Is it Cybercrime or it is an issue of Cyber Security?
