Our Top 7 tips to keep our kids safer on the internet

“Create, connect and share respect: A better internet starts with you” is a call to action for every stakeholder to play their part in creating a better internet for everyone, in particular the youngest users out there. Here are our Top 7 tips to keep our kids safer on the internet. Encourage the younger generation to follow these and other tips on internet safety.


Google Set to Name and Shame Sites Lacking HTTPS

Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure - HTTPS - better secures client/server communications by making SSL/TLS encryption the default protocol for accessing all pages on a site. Using HTTPS - especially with TLS - helps prevent outsiders from eavesdropping on communications or launching man-in-the-middle attacks. Come July, Google Chrome will mark every site that does not use HTTPS encryption as "not secure."


Why Your Innocent Office Printer May Be a Target For Hackers

Why protecting your data is so critical? A data breach can cause you to lose your customers’ trust. But that’s not the only risk. The other problem is that, just as they are finding unique ways to steal data, hackers are also finding ways to use it against business owners. Medium-sized businesses are the ideal target: They’re big enough to be worth the effort, yet small enough to lack the resources to protect their patents and to fight flimsy but effective infringement lawsuits. Here are three attack vectors you probably haven't considered, along with ways to mitigate the risks they pose.


US Data Breaches Hit All-Time High

The Identity Theft Resource Center (ITRC), a U.S. non-profit organization set up to help ID theft victims, reports that in 2017, the number of U.S. data breaches reached an all-time high. In 2017, ITRC counted 1,579 U.S. breaches, up 45 percent from 2016. 

  • Hardest Hit: Business Sector
  • Top Breach Vector: Hacking
