This week the experts from Credit.com contributed to a wide range of publications on subjects including debt collect, identity theft, Hurricane Sandy and the pitfalls of Black Friday. Check out the hits…

Credit.com Co-Founder and Chairman Adam Levin was on The Daily Ticker to discuss cybersecurity and how to prevent it. He brings up the SEC breach he recently wrote about in his weekly column for Credit.com and attributes the severity of these problems to the intelligence of today’s hackers. He calls for government- and corporate-level protection against this problem that is becoming increasingly harder to detect.

Adam also spoke to MarketWatch about the value of financial preparation before a tragedy. He cites the looming possibility of problems concerning the fiscal cliff and more dramatically details the pain of victims of Hurricane Sandy. He stresses the importance of keeping an emergency fund on hand to stave off potential consequences of the fiscal cliff. On the upside, Adam points out that if we don’t end up going off the fiscal cliff, you’ll still be sitting on a solid emergency fund that will surely come in handy down the road.
