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.

Really useful information to remember when you are travelling and using free wifi. Take care that you understand what you are using and stay safe.

Marc Kneepkens's curator insight, July 8, 2014 7:33 AM

VPN's are becoming more commonplace. It's an excellent way to stay safe.

Yet another iPhone lockscreen vulnerability. This time in iOS 7.02 [VIDEO]

Yet another iPhone lockscreen vulnerability. This time in iOS 7.02 [VIDEO] | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
Another day, another privacy vulnerability found in iOS.

When will Apple learn that a lockscreen should really, properly, lock the phone?

Israeli researcher Dany Lisiansky uncovered the flaw, and made a video to demonstrate a way to take a victim’s locked iPhone running iOS 7.02, and ===> access their call history, voicemails and entire list of contacts. <===

malek's curator insight, September 17, 2013 8:23 AM

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 10:12 AM

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

Bruce McDuffee's curator insight, September 25, 2013 11:41 PM

Interesting BYOD stats.

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.
