Tech trauma: The In­ter­net

The story: A cy­ber se­cu­rity spe­cial­ist gets her driver’s li­cense, credit cards, bank ac­counts, and iden­tity deleted. What hap­pens next is half thriller, half spend­ing time in front of the com­puter play­ing Wolf­stein 3D, or­der­ing pizza on­line, and book­ing flight tick­ets. Fact or fic­tion? Take away floppy disks and the bulky white boxes we used to call mon­i­tors back in the 90s, you get present day cy­ber iden­tity theft.
