Myth: There is no link between your real-life location and your digital one.

The truth is that the two are very much connected. Perhaps more importantly, then, is what this means when it comes to your personal security. If the state or city in which you live is a hotbed for cybercriminal activity, your chances of being infected online increase significantly. Couple this with the fact that hackers are constantly refining their attack methods and finding new ways to make a profit, and you have yourself a potential recipe for personal information loss disaster.

It also helps knowing which states and cities hackers choose as their favorite targets. The infographic below breaks it down.
