Almost everything about our day involves sophisticated technology: from the alarm clock we snooze in the morning, to the remote we use to start a Netflix binge in the evening.

Cybersecurity is no longer a concept that’s limited to sci-fi movies: it’s more real than ever. Each and every one of us faces threats to our security, our data, and our personal details on a daily...
