What: Email login and passwords are just one way everyday people lose control over their personal information online. Almost every purchase, form-fill and information exchange that requires login and password can be hacked with relative ease by a skilled and determined hacker.
Technologies are now available to dramatically limit exposure, and more are on the way soon!
Deutsche Telekom AG, Equifax, Google, Intel, Microsoft, Novell, Oracle, PayPal and more than 100 other companies and experts within the Information Card Foundation are solving the problem of login and password hacking.
Who: Paul Trevithick, Chairman of the Information Card Foundation, can inform the public about many methods of personal information breaches and what can be done to prevent such loss today and in the near future.

About the Information Card Foundation
The Information Card Foundation (ICF) is a non-profit foundation created to advance a simpler, more secure digital identity on the Internet. The organization's mission is to increase control over personal information while enabling mutually beneficial digital relationships between people and businesses. The mission will be pursued through the proliferation of Information Cards (i-cards).
The ICF is led by board members from technology, banking, credit industries plus nine individual leaders in the technology community. The organization includes members from Australia, Canada, Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States.
Information Cards take a familiar off-line consumer behavior - using a card to prove identity and provide information - and bring it to the online world. Information Cards are a visual representation of a personal digital identity which can be shared with online entities. Internet users are able to manage the information in their cards, have multiple cards with different levels of detail, and easily select the card they want to use for any given personal or commercial interaction.
