Cybersecurity continues to be a hot topic in the United States and, in fact, around the world. We have witnessed numerous data breaches, malware attacks, and now the latest trend, ransomware — holding a computer system hostage until a payment is made. It seems that data breaches are almost inevitable. If you become a target, it becomes simply a question of when.
So, how do we keep ourselves and our older adult parents and loved ones from becoming a target? We are joined today by Matthew Herren, an expert in cybersecurity to help us look into this topic further. We guarantee that some of this thoughts and perspective will make you stop and think the next time you turn on your computer.
