"Identify theft will explode."  That chilling phrase is just one of several predictions made for this year by Internet security expert Tom Kelly. 

He is the CEO of ID Experts, based in Portland, and he is not encouraged by what he sees in the handling of data by social media sites. 

His predictions are presented in a recent post at Morning Consult.  Tom Kelly visits the Exchange to talk about ways to insulate ourselves and our personal information from people who would abscond with them.
