Over-supply of stolen identity data – price of forged identities declines rapidly

Albert Kramer of the internet security company Trend Micro says that stolen identity data are in great surplus, and information is now being sold on the internet for less than one euro.  This concerns addresses, telephone numbers, and also bank and credit card data.  Kramer explains this saying that even people who have little knowledge can now access tools for cyber-criminality.  He added that companies do too little to protect themselves against online risks.
