Robert Ryerson entered the financial industry in 1984 when he went through training to be a “stockbroker”, as they were then called, for Shearson Lehman American Express in the World Trade Center in NYC. He broadened his efforts in the field by becoming a Certified Financial Planner (CFP) in 1991. More recently, he became concerned about the epidemic of identity theft, and became a Certified Identity Theft Risk Management Specialist (CITRMS).

In this blog post, Ryerson gives vpnMentor readers a sneak preview to the eleventh chapter of the book, which talks about some emerging trends in the fight against identity theft. So grab your cup of coffee and let's get to it.
