Kari Paul for MarketWatch: As the recent announcement that 500 million Yahoo email accounts were hacked shows, emails and passwords are never fully safe.

But the data needed to help prevent leaks or burglaries will also introduce new risks, such as vulnerabilities to data loss or ransomware. Cont'd...
