Why Cyber Security Starts At Home

Why Cyber Security Starts At Home | digital divide information | Scoop.it

Other people’s security practices (or lack thereof) affect us all. We’re all connected via the shared network we call the Internet. It’s in our own best interests to make sure everyone -- even the grandmas on Facebook -- know and practice basic security habits. As security professionals, I believe we should share our tips with anyone we meet, whenever the opportunity arises. Chatting with an accountant on the bus who mentions the Cryptolocker infection on his wife’s computer? Why not share some tips you practice to avoid that sort of ransomware?

Take time and be grateful for what life brings to us.

The Rice Process's curator insight, November 18, 3:52 PM

Parents and teachers need to model gratitude. We know that gratitude is a predictor of feeling happy and content. Children learn early that gratitude is an attitude that contributes to their personal happiness and to the happiness of others.  We all share a common desire to be happy, and gratitude shows us the way.
