A very interesting article and clearly highlights the changes in how younger generations may be unwittingly prey to data breaches by highly-technology based companies through the ways they live & communicate each day. And furthermore, the different attitudes of the older generations who are less technology-minded or willing to get involved.

Clearly data privacy regulations worldwide need to be structured in a coherent manner to ensure the exposure impact on people's personal lives is minimised wherever they choose to live.
