    For the past decade I have dealt with identity theft, stalking, and a host of other crimes committed against me and all the legal, financial, confidential and private communications I participated in with others. Lawyers, doctors, banking institutions, law enforcement -all were hacked. Computer tampering led to two attempts on my life. I can assure you the damage went far into the millions to fix and I was investigated by several government agencies. This is condoned. Why in the hell did the bill fail? I suppose it will only pass when a victim on the Senate is negatively impacted. This destroys lives. I contacted in excess of twenty offices, I was told by all to get a lawyer. It‘s not just about older adults it‘s also about people in " confidential situations" etc. I commend Cuomo. Until the US catches up with the advancement of technology it‘s people need to be protected. If we were robbed in our homes the perpetrator would be arrested. What is the difference here? It‘s a license to steal because criminal minds outweigh our IT technicians ability to secure our technology.
