According to the website http://www.statisticbrain.com, there were 16 million households that have had serious virus problems in the past 2 years and 1 million households that lost money or had accounts misused by phishing attacks through email. These statistics are from the US alone. Local and national news channels seem to report each day on identity theft, information stolen from individuals, data breaches on companies large and small, Wi-Fi used for illegal purposes, computers stolen at the workplace and even on playgrounds and fast food restaurants. As an Information Security Officer, it is my job to manage these types of threats each day. With that being said, I am going to walk you through exactly how to protect yourself from all of the above with easy to follow step by step instructions.
The need for online security becomes even greater while you are traveling and on the go. We seem to let our guard down a bit because we are thrilled about our time on vacation, going to the park or simply the coffee shop around the corner. Either way, we must stay alert and do the small things that will help keep us safe.
After helping numerous stay at home moms, it became evident, they were the ones responsible for issues related to the Internet, computers, tablets, phones and other devices.
