Topic Background:

According to a report released in November 2014 by the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism titled, “Financial Crime and Material Support Schemes Linked to al-Qa’ida and Affiliated Movements in the United States: 1990 to June 2014,” research indicated that identity theft was one of the top schemes used to raise funds for their organizations. The report continues by stating, “The techniques used to carry out these schemes included stealing, selling, or using other people’s identities (names and social security numbers) and credit card numbers; falsifying documents for government assistance, bank loans, or insurance claims; passing bank checks with inadequate funds or false accounts; and attempting to disguise money derived from criminal operations as legitimate.”

This report pinpoints the reason for continued education on the methods and trends to identity theft from enterprises ranging from small businesses to large corporations. The scope for internal and external theft exists in access to information ranging from customer’s personal information to company credit card accounts and banking information. The impact this can have on an individual and a company can lead to years of financial heartache trying to repair the damages induced by these criminal enterprises.

Local Attractions:

San Diego Cabrillo National Monument
The first European to set foot in California was the Spanish explorer Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, who stepped on shore near this spot in in 1542. He's the guy they made this statue to look like - and named the park after. We don't know if Cabrillo climbed all the way up to the top of this promontory or not, but people who make up here nowadays get some of the best views of San Diego, looking across the Bay and back toward downtown.

Sea Creatures at Birch Aquarium
Birch Aquarium is north of San Diego in La Jolla. It's not as big as some of the other aquariums in California or as flashy as the big sea-themed park down the road, but instead just right, filled with interesting exhibits and home to leafy sea dragons like the one above, creatures so improbably they look more like something from a children's book than from the ocean.

Legoland theme park takes its inspiration from Lego toys, those cute little bricks that snap together to build all kinds of fun things. It's one of several Legolands worldwide.

San Diego Zoo Safari Park
The San Diego Zoo's sister park offers a different kind of animal experience. Its name (Safari Park) is the clue and it indeed offers a more safari-like experience. Lots of large animals live in the same big, open areas here - predators kept away from prey, but otherwise much as they would in their natural habitat.
Coronado Island
Coronado isn't really an island but a peninsula - a fact that doesn't get in the way of the name most people use for it. Whatever you call it, it's on a slender strip of land between the San Diego Bay and the Pacific Ocean, barely a few blocks wide. What it lacks in size it makes up for in fun, with a beach that's been named among the best in the country, a classic hotel and a compact, lively little downtown. Coronado's laid-back temperament makes a nice break from the busier parts of San Diego across the water.

Balboa Park
Originally built for temporary use during the 1915-16 Panama-California Exposition in San Diego, Balboa Park boasts buildings beautiful enough to be considered attractions in themselves, especially if you're a photographer. They're surrounded by trees, lawns and fountains, but that's only the beginning.

La Jolla
In Spanish, La Jolla means "the jewel," an apt name for a pretty, Mediterranean-style seaside town - sitting on cliffs flanking the ocean. La Jolla visitors like to shop and eat in the nice restaurants, some of them with lovely ocean views. There's a lot for the active visitor, too, including ocean kayaking, tide pool-hopping, surfing at Windansea Beach, biking or running along the waterfront.
