With the escalation of cybersecurity attacks – and many striking close to home (Equifax, Amazon/Whole Foods) – ordinary citizens are no longer feeling secure that hackers are targeting more lucrative victims. Instead, there is a growing sense of vulnerability and exposure because these cybercriminals appear to operate with impunity.
They may seem sophisticated, but the average hacker is not what you would expect. Most are simply common thieves who are using readily available hacking tools sold online – including the dark web – and preying on the lax security habits of computer users. This presentation looks at who are today’s hackers, how they are getting in to your personal and work computers, where you are creating your own points of exposure, and what you can do to protect yourself online.
