Cyber security risks are a lot more serious than they used to be. Today, everything is stored in the cloud. While the interconnectedness of the web is convenient for keeping all of your data easily accessible, it also puts you at greater risk if you are the victim of hacking.
Hackers can invade your entire life with access to your password. The threat of hacking is greater if you’re a business owner, because you put your clients’ confidential information at risk by having lax security protocols. It’s up to you to take the necessary precautions and protect not just your own information, but integrity of your business.
The most recent rash of cyber security threats comes from a scheme involving a fake Gmail login page. When hackers get into an email, they will send out emails containing an attachment to everyone in the address book. So typically, you will receive an email from someone in your address book, someone you know and trust, containing this attachment. Once you click on the attachment, it directs you to log back into your email. Unfortunately, when this happens, it takes you to a fake login page and once you enter in your login credentials, the hackers now it and can get into your email and access all your information linked to it.
