The internet is a wonderful place. It has brought us conveniences such as Amazon, Instacart and DoorDash. It has entertained us with countless cat videos and nourished our curious spirit with millions of google search results in less than half a second. It has also allowed us to open ourselves up to a whole new set of problems: cyber attacks. Often, this is an unseen threat.
Unlike a traditional attack, cyber attacks are often hard to trace. Hackers are very savvy and leave very little evidence of their evil doing. However, recent data shows that these attacks cost businesses upwards of 4.4 million every time. This is a huge sum of money to be spending on an unsolved crime.
However, there are several ways to prevent cyber crimes. The first is simply knowing what information is out there. You can only control what you know, so be aware of what you are posting online.
