Protecting Your Cybersecurity When Children Are At Home

Protecting Your Cybersecurity When Children Are At Home

While there are risks associated with remote work, the odds of a malware attack increase when more family members use the same device, especially children.

“The malicious code children collect on their way to something you’ve never heard of can hijack your computer for all kinds of purposes. There are click-harvesting scams. There are stealth programs that will turn your machine into a spambot. There’s malware that looks OK to your anti-virus program, but is actually recording every keystroke, most particularly when you log into your bank account,” warns CyberScout founder and chairman Adam Levin.

Why Businesses Should Consider Offering Identity Fraud and Theft Protection to Employees

Why Businesses Should Consider Offering Identity Fraud and Theft Protection to Employees

Many companies will offer identity fraud and theft protection services to customers who have had their data compromised in a breach, but relatively few provide it as a benefit to their employees—just 25 percent as of 2019. This approach ends up costing businesses in the long run, according to CyberScout founder and chairman Adam Levin.

How Typosquatting Hacks Can Target Your Company

How Typosquatting Hacks Can Target Your Company

Typosquatting is perhaps the least sophisticated form of domain name hacking. It relies on user error, specifically the odds of a user mis-typing a URL address into their web browser. Hacker register a misspelled version of a well-known domain name, such as “gooogle.com” or “gooogl.com” rather than google.com. (Important: do not visit either “gooogle.com” or “gooogl.com”. They are dangerous).

Understanding DNS and Cybersecurity

Understanding DNS and Cybersecurity

Domain names are a foundational service of the Internet, and are controlled by a protocol called Domain Name System, or DNS. While the details are complicated, DNS ultimately serves a straightforward purpose: it helps route traffic on the internet using human-friendly names. Everything connected to the internet, from smartphones and fitness trackers to enterprise-level email servers, has a unique identifying address called an IP address. Every activity on the internet, from checking email to web browsing to posting to Instagram is a means of connecting a request from one IP address to its destination IP address.
