11 ways to stay SAFE online when you’re traveling

11 ways to stay SAFE online when you’re traveling | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

If you bring your phone, tablet or laptop with you when you travel, there’s one thing to keep in mind: public WiFi networks are public.

“That open Wi-Fi connection opens the door for hackers,” writes NPR’s Steve Henn. “They can get in the middle of transactions between, say, you and your bank.”


Because you’re sharing the network with strangers, there’s the risk that someone is using readily available software that snoops on what you’re doing.

Observations on the Evolution of Cyber Tactics in 2013

Observations on the Evolution of Cyber Tactics in 2013 | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
Tom Kellermann discusses the changes we can expect to see in 2013

 

The world has reached a point of inflection in cybercrime. As cyberspace abounds with cyber privateers, and many nations of the world become havens for these modern-day pirates, it appears that 2013 is the year of hacking for criminal gain.

 

In our recently released predictions for 2013, our CTO Raimund Genes illustrated his strategic vision per the future of cybercrime. The predictions highlight improvements in threats we will encounter in 2013, more specifically on the attack vectors used by cybercriminals. Raimund predicts that attackers will shift their strategy from developing sophisticated malware to focusing on the means to infiltrate networks and evade detection.

The growing headache of protecting mobile devices

The growing headache of protecting mobile devices | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) schemes have become increasingly prevalent in most businesses worldwide, as employees look to use their own personal devices in a business context. When asked if employees valued certain devices over others, 89 per cent of those surveyed claimed this was the case.

 

“Rather than fight against the tide, organizations should embrace the use of these devices and work alongside staff to ensure that comprehensive IT policies and best practice guidelines are put in place to assist and inform employees about how their devices should be used. End-point protection for these devices is also crucial if businesses want to safeguard employees against an ever-changing, increasingly sophisticated threat landscape.”

he company provides a free and public Safe Browsing API that allows other organizations to keep their users safe by using the data Google has compiled.

 

• Google said it discovers about 9,500 new malicious websites every day – These sites could be either innocent sites that have been compromised by cybercriminals, or purpose-built sites designed for malware distribution or phishing.

 

• Approximately 12-14 million Google Search queries per day show warnings in order to caution users from going to sites that may be compromised.

 

• Google provides malware warnings for about 300,000 downloads per day through its Chrome download protection service.

malek's curator insight, September 17, 2013 1:23 PM

A myriad of threats:

* Employers often cannot assess data breach exposure on unmanaged BYODs

*Lost or stolen BYODs  that  contain sensitive data, with less than 1 in 4 can be remotely wiped.

* When BYODs bypass inbound filters normally applied to corporate devices, they’re vulnerable to malware

and the list goes on and on


TheSoulfulEMU's curator insight, September 24, 2013 3:12 PM

Now that you know it, so DONT- BYOD!!! Got it?

Bruce McDuffee's curator insight, September 26, 2013 4:41 AM
