  According to a recent report, there were 12.6 million victims of identity fraud in 2012. And increasingly, criminals are taking advantage of the poor security measures smartphone and tablet  owners use to gain access to important personal  information. Many users keep banking information on their phones or check their bank accounts via public Wi-Fi. And many people leave their phones unattended at their office  or in their parked cars. Dave Hatter, solution architect and partner at Definity Partners, LLC, discusses common identity theft schemes, and what you can do to protect yourself.
