Here’s What’s Happening Around the World That Threatens the Way We Use the Internet in the Future…

The SplinterNet…here’s what’s happening around the world that threatens the way we use the Internet in the future.

Remember the early Internet days – for the first time things we never thought could be free, were free! We could make calls using Skype, read and research all kinds of how-tos, and email anyone in the world…well, data use and misuse is getting out of hand, and countries around the world are starting to rethink some things…some of it good (like how your data can and should be used), and some bad (like what you should and should not be aloud to read about). As small business owners we depend on this “free utility” for growth and reach – keep your eye on the trends and were lawmakers are headed with this!

Don’t Be Fooled By Apps…

We assume apps are secure – don’t be fooled. Your phone has tremendous power to track your every move – including watching you and listening in…

Sex and football – two interests used in a recent Hamas attack…don’t write this off just because it was overseas. They used Android, and managed to get three apps on the app store, resulting in the compromise of hundreds of Israeli soldiers.

App Traps – Something to Think About Next Time You Download an App to Your Phone.

This article was published in The Wall Street Journal – which you may not have access to (without a subscription), however the topic is important, and we are keeping an eye on this for you right here!

App Traps: How Cheap Smartphones Help Themselves to User Data. In this report, the author uncovers an interesting trend with burner phones – which may come with preloaded apps – written by who knows who.

These New Cyberattacks Have the Power to Destroy – Are You Ready?

They’re called Gen V (generation 5) attacks…multi-vector, meaning they come in from different places all at once…including your cloud vendors! Mobile phones, wireless, home computers…simple firewalls and passwords don’t stop this sort of thing. However  there are some things you can be doing. Most attacks take some time – so having a detection / response security program in place, much like monitoring the alarm you might use in your home with a service like ADT. When the hacker starts – detection alerts you, giving you (or your favorite 3rd party security monitoring company) warning to block their attempts. This is the new world we live in…
