Every time you turn around there's a new tale of espionage, with thieves plundering our personal information -- our bank accounts and PIN codes, addresses, and phone numbers. Data breaches at Target, Neiman Marcus, Barclays, and Yahoo's email service alone have yielded information on more than 70 million consumers in recent months. And those are just the attacks we know about.
