Cyber Security Update: Hackers, China, Trump, Putin, Russia, Yahoo, Virus, Malware and much more!

Safenetting

User Group Network UGN Safenetting and cyber world report

It’s a new year, and the elections are over. We have a new president we should all be standing behind. But there’s trouble in the world, and many people are pandering to it without even an inkling of the truth. The trouble isn’t what you think. It’s far more insidious than even those protesters can fathom. It will come slowly and quietly, until you suddenly discover it was happening all along, and the world is powerless to stop it.

Cyber Security Update: Hackers, China, Trump, Putin, Russia, Yahoo, RNC, the White House, and much more!

Safenetting

User Group Network UGN Safenetting and cyber world report As each day goes by, the state of cyber world gets more and more outrageous. Thanks to Trump the predator media has suddenly become accutly aware of the cyber war and all the risks that lie just below the horizon of the nearest internet connection. Talking heads pontificate ad nauseam about the Russian hack and what’s happening next. Suddenly they’ve discovered the threats we’ve been talking about since 2008. First Obama said he wouldn’t do anything (see last week’s InfoManager), now he says he is. People seem to think this is the first time, or that it was specifically Putin supporting Trump. What twits. But seriously folks, this is the season to be hyper aware of your surroundings and what you’re doing to protect yourself. And of course, Safenetting and the InfoManager are there for you!
