Krebs – OPM Breach: Credit Monitoring vs. Freeze

I have been pondering an article on the value of credit freezing for some time now, but Mr. Krebs has done an excellent job discussing the virtues of such a practice in the context of a well-known breach and the promise of free credit monitoring, so I share it with you now.  I am a proponent of credit freezes as well, but I also particularly appreciate the attention this article pays to monitoring the credit of minor dependents, especially in light of the recent VTech breach.
