In a world of digital technology, it’s easy to forget one sobering fact: Our identity can be stolen from under our noses, with one click of the mouse, propelling us into nightmares in a matter of minutes, anytime, anywhere, and on any one of our darling gadgets.
Cybercrimes, malware, botnets, and all forms of digital threats are ever more sophisticated, waiting in the shadows for that one opportunity to steal your sensitive information. Terry Cutler, a certified ethical hacker, reminds us of how vulnerable our data is, through chilling real-life stories, such as that of a simple USB key left purposefully behind, in a targeted enterprise’s lavatory, where an unsuspecting (albeit good-willed) employee can just pick it up, plug it in, and thus lead the criminals right into the company’s core data or to your home computer.
