b2ap3_thumbnail_phishing_scams_400.jpgPhishing attacks grow more common every day, particularly because it’s so challenging to know who’s for real and who’s a fake on the Internet. The anonymity of the Internet has fostered an environment where hackers can extort money with little fear of getting caught, under the right circumstances. How can you protect yourself and your business from being targeted by phishing attacks?

b2ap3_thumbnail_comprehensive_cynersecurity_400.jpgHere’s a surprising fact for October’s Cyber Security Month: small businesses are at a greater risk of a hacking attack.

b2ap3_thumbnail_black_market_dark_web_400.jpgOctober is Cybersecurity Awareness Month! With the number of data breaches growing every day, one has to wonder what hackers do with all of the information they steal. In some cases, the hackers go public with the information, as seen by the recent Ashley Madison and Sony hacks. Other times, however, hackers just want to use the information as a bargaining chip on the black market. The theft of passwords, usernames, Social Security numbers, and other sensitive information is a very lucrative market for hackers.

b2ap3_thumbnail_do_not_get_hacked_400.jpgBehind the safety of a firewall and antivirus solution, it’s easy to forget that the Internet, and the online community in general, can be a dangerous place. It’s not until you fall prey to a hacking attack, virus infection, or similar threat that you become aware of the dangers that lie in the virtual darkness.

b2ap3_thumbnail_hacker_wars_400.jpgWhen you see the results of a major hacking campaign on the news, you might tend to sympathize with the victim. While most hacks target individuals or high-profile businesses, hackers have, for the first time, intentionally targeted each other. The attack in question occurred between Naikon, a cyberespionage group, and another group called Hellsing.

b2ap3_thumbnail_radio_signal_400.jpgYou should never assume that your data is safe from a hacking attack. Just like how the technology industry is working toward new ways to protect the public from hacks, those who lurk in the gutters of the Internet are trying to undermine these developments by any means possible.

b2ap3_thumbnail_superfish_one_400.jpgNormally, you can trust the software that comes preinstalled on a new computer.

Posted by on in Security

b2ap3_thumbnail_protect_your_identity_400.jpgIt’s the holiday season… for everyone but Sony, at least. The tech/entertainment supergiant has been experiencing a ton of security issues lately. Last month, someone hacked into Sony’s databases and stole a lot of information (including unreleased movies, which were later released to the world). This December, it was revealed that Sony stored their passwords in a folder on their server titled “Passwords.”

Posted by on in Security

b2ap3_thumbnail_protect_yourself_against_viruses_400.jpgIt’s flu season, and just like office workers around the country are taking preventive health measures like stocking up on tissues and vitamin C, so too are IT technicians doing everything they can to stop the spread of computer viruses on their company’s network.
