b2ap3_thumbnail_SHA1_encryption_400.jpgEventually, one technology gets replaced by another and users of the older technology must upgrade, or else risk running an inefficient operation.

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.

Posted by on in Miscellaneous

b2ap3_thumbnail_domain_information_400.jpgWhen it comes to your online presence, few tools are more valuable than your organization’s website.

b2ap3_thumbnail_anonymous_browsing_400.jpgIt turns out that the Internet isn’t as anonymous as it seems. This is a hard lesson learned by more than 37 million users of Ashley Madison, a website dedicated to cheating on one’s spouse. In July, the site was hacked by the hacker group, “The Impact Team,” and they’re currently threatening to expose the cheaters by going public with the database. In this particular case, Ashley Madison users should have known better--on two levels.

b2ap3_thumbnail_know_your_ip_400.jpgLike your fingerprint, your computer’s IP address holds the key to your identity. Okay, it may not be as unique as your fingerprint, and you may actually use multiple IP addresses every day, but still, your IP address says a lot about you.

b2ap3_thumbnail_that_voip_phone_system_400.jpgWhen it comes to technology, one of the biggest pain points of the modern business is communication.

b2ap3_thumbnail_internet_language_400.jpgWhen the Internet was first introduced, malware and hacking weren’t nearly as dangerous as they are in the present moment. Due to the unforeseen growth of criminal activity, the Internet wasn’t designed with advanced security practices put into place. Instead, it has grown to adapt to issues as they arrive, similar to the way an animal adapts to the changes in their environment over time. But sometimes, as time goes on, the environment changes too fast for its inhabitants to adapt.

Posted by on in How To

b2ap3_thumbnail_issues_with_internet_trolls_400.jpgLet’s face it: The Internet is filled with opinions, and several of them are undoubtedly wrong. Generally, most mature people will take these opinions with a grain of salt and move on. The other half of the population absolutely must respond.
