Is your data safe?
Tuesday, 7th August, 2012
Matt Honan recently found his digital life in a shambles. Bad guys were able to access his online accounts AND his personal computer. They wiped every shred of data from his MacBook.
If Matt Honan, a technical writer for Wired Magazine, can get hacked in such a fashion, so can any of us. We now rely on our computers and the Internet for almost everything! We store photos on our computers and in the cloud. We bank online. Who doesn't order stuff online? Almost nobody!
The question is, what can you do to protect your accounts and your data?
Are you backing up your data? If you are, are you backing up the right data?
