With the world moving more and more so to a ‘online’ format we are going to see an increase in overall cyber attacks and activities. We store so much personal information on our devices and when you think about how easy it is for someone to get access to your account/device it is extremely scary. I know first hand that anyone around the world has the possibility to access an account of mine. Within the last 2 months I have had 2 different accounts display the warning “Suspicious activity detected on your account, confirm if this was you”. When in fact these access points were from Thailand and Nepal.. now that’s scary.
We are learning about ways hackers can get our information such as: non-secure websites, phishing emails, trojans, etc. It is only a matter of time before some hackers are able to access our information more easily and readily. We need to be constantly developing and refining our ability to identify dangers in the online space.
