New Microsoft video explains how to secure your identity and keep cybercriminals at bay

Most of the tech savvy people who have made their homes on the internet over the past decade or so are probably already well aware of cybercriminals, and their strategies. Microsoft’s seen fit to put together a video that explains some of these to the rest of the world – or those who may have just been unaware of how crafty hackers have become.

Like many other recent Microsoft videos, this one is nicely animated with a neat, minimalistic style that accents the narration well.
