ecurity is a popular topic in the news today. Staying safe and keeping your information and data secure is a must, with third party data breaches happening almost daily. It is no longer just a matter of choosing a unique password anymore. If one company that stores your password and email gets breached and you reuse that password, all those accounts are likely compromised.


How To Stay Safe?

The best ways to stay safe online involve just common sense. It really is that simple, not reusing old passwords, updating your computer, updating antivirus/malware, being cautious of the websites you visit. A vast majority of breaches to user information happen because of a breach at a third party company that you use. Any company you sign up with email and password will store your data. We have seen billion-dollar conglomerates have massive breaches so if it’s a matter of money they don’t put it in the right places. One of the best ways is to not reuse passwords, the example above a third party company gets breached and you use the same email/password at all other services you use. They have bots that will run through and try that combination of email password for all known accounts until they finally get in somewhere then they can pivot further once they get the initial access.
