Last week Yahoo announced that 500 million accounts had been hacked – consumer names, email addresses, phone messages, passwords and birth dates were stolen.

So who is behind them and what can consumers do to protect ourselves online? Mary Cummings-Jordan talks with NICOLE PERLROTH, technology reporter who covers cybersecurity for the New York Times and RICHARD FORNO, co-director of the University of Maryland’s Center for Cybersecurity.
