Personal Security Facts

The Digital Age has made life so much easier. We can do everything from pay our bills online to order pizza through our phone, but for every advancement that is made, there is a greater risk for cyber-attacks and breaches in security. Hackers aren’t just targeting major corporations and big business, they’re going after credit cards, bank accounts, even store credit cards, as we saw with the Target hack. To protect yourself and your finances, you need to be aware of what to look for, how to best protect your accounts, and how to create secure networks within your home. Security starts with creating smart, intricate passwords that aren’t easy to guess. These are the key to your information, and should be built to be as secure as possible. But passwords are just the beginning. Beyond doing your homework and reading up on cyber security, having a home security professional and network installer walk you through how to create the best password and other ways to secure your network is a great way to learn more about cyber risks, while also gaining knowledge on how to best prevent them from happening. After all, hackers are incredibly intelligent, so it’s best to know how to stop them before they get too far.
