“IoT without security = Internet of Threats” – Stephane Nappo
Last week’s recap-
Day 56: 75% of Internet mail is now spam and businesses with 24 users or less receive around 600 spam messages per month. Tips- Do not click on any links or download or open attachments that come from spam. Also, disable the automatic download of HTML graphics in your mails. #100securedays
Day 57: We use our laptops on a daily basis. You don’t have to be a celebrity or a politician to fall victim to a webcam hack. We’ve seen the news! Baby monitors, smartphones, laptops, and smart TVs have been hacked to spy on people around the world. #100securedays
Day 58: How many times have you come across this kind of news updates? The truth is, as tempting as the news looks, you are just one click away from a malware attack. Stay aware and avoid all of these tricks. #100securedays
Day 59: This is the best practice! Set up another e-mail account with a different password. Also, be aware of your surroundings when giving out your email address. #100securedays
Day 60: Logging into your PC as an admin is riskier than logging in as a standard user for routine stuff like web browsing. An admin log-in makes your system more vulnerable. #100securedays
