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. We’ve started to use “smart” technology, like NEST thermostats and the Alexa from Amazon. But just as the amount of technology we use increases, so does the amount of information we’re providing to outside parties.
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 basis. Outsmarting the hackers and their growing technology is difficult, but very manageable if you take the right steps to protect yourself.
