Data Privacy Day is January 28th, and it’s a great opportunity to evaluate how you handle and store your company’s sensitive data. Cloud storage is a very popular method: 63% of small businesses use the cloud to store their company data and files, and that number appears to be on the rise. But as with most technology, it comes with risk. So what can you do to ensure that your – and your customers’ – data is kept private?
Let it…glow? We live in a connected world, and it’s especially apparent through the holidays with so many internet-connected (IoT) children’s toys lining the shelves. We recently discussed prioritizing security with IoT devices in your home and office, and toys are no exception.
As with any internet-connected devices, it’s important to keep in mind things aren’t always manufactured with top line security.
The Internet of Things, or IoT, refers to the network of physical products and devices that connect to the Internet. Common household IoT devices include Internet-connected thermostats, alarm systems, and televisions, and even kitchen appliances. By 2020, there will be over 30 million IoT devices worldwide.
There is no doubt about it, “smart” devices have become a part of everyday life. But the thing we have to remember is: If it connects to the Internet, it has the potential to be hacked.
We hope you had a wonderful 4th of July! Fireworks were booming, grills were blazing, and cameras were popping.
Social media is a fun and convenient way to show off your photos and connect with others, something many of us do personally and professionally. But we’re a little more hesitant today than we were last Independence Day, and starting to wonder what Privacy is and whether or not it exists anymore.
