How secure is your credit card info?

In light of the biggest identity theft case ever prosecuted in America, the spotlight is being turned on just how secure is our credit and debit card information?

........Espousing a completely different view is Jerry Tabeling who is the president of IDP, a company that carries out vulnerability assessments of networks and online business applications."Our information is a lot more secure after all the publicity we have had about attacks," he said."But yes there are still problems that still exist though it is getting safer."These, Mr Tabeling told the BBC, tend to centre around a retailer not doing a good enough job securing its network.
Meanwhile Mr Tabeling, an IT security specialist, suggested that all consumers need to play a more proactive part in policing their own transactions and their credit information.
