People Need Cyber Security, Too

In this post I wanted to talk about why.

Not Why as in the meaning of life, but why as in why do we need cyber security?

With the whole world around us becoming more and more connected, the people who want to con us for their own benefit are becoming more and more sophisticated and what you need to do to be cyber secure is constantly changing.

 
They Target Whomever

There also isn’t any discrimination among who these people con either. They target whomever will help them fulfill their goals, regardless of whether that is a big business, a small business or individual people.

Because of this, everyone needs to learn not just how to install a firewall and antivirus, but how to think cyber secure so that as our connected world changes and evolves, you can change and adapt your cyber security to stand a better chance at keeping yourself and your information safe without becoming overwhelmed both at work and at home.

 

Everyone Should Think Cyber Secure

Though, through my own experience, it seems most people don’t know how to think cyber secure. This really shows in a Pew Research Survey done in 2016 (Click Here to have a look at the survey results at Pew Research). They asked 1,055 online adults 13 questions about cyber security. The typical respondent was only able to answer five.

 

This means that everyone needs a little help. Not everyone is going to be able to only answer two questions, but everyone might have one thing they aren’t completely sure about.

 

And that’s why I wanted to start this podcast and decided to call it Think Cyber Secure.

Introducing Think Cyber Secure

how to be cyber secure

Hello, and welcome to Think Cyber Secure!

Whether you’re an entrepreneur and business leader or someone who wants to learn how to be cyber secure, then this is the blog for you. 

We’re going to deconstruct and decode the world of cybersecurity and privacy to reveal the fundamentals of what you need to know so you can make smart decisions about what you do, where you go and what you post online.

We’ll be translating the geek-speak to provide real tips that you can use to protect yourself and your business from the threats out there today.

We started this website for two reasons.

The first is that with the rapid advancement of technology and digital transformation, our lives are becoming integrated with the Internet more and more every day.

This integration is making the Internet itself more of a real risk to us as individuals and businesses. The Imperva 2019 Cyberthreat Defense Report found that 78% of the organizations they surveyed were affected by a successful cyber-attack in 2018.

Just as we automatically assess and take care of our safety and security throughout our everyday real-world lives, we now need to do the same with our digital lives as well.

The second being that after working in cybersecurity and helping family and friends with their online security and safety, we’ve realized that not everyone knows what they need to do to protect themselves and their businesses. 

With those that know, they’re either overwhelmed or stick to the traditional advice, not adjusting that advice to their unique situations.

The goal

Our goal is to help you learn how to be cyber secure from a holistic perspective. To understand your digital security just like you know your real-world security. To make decisions safely and securely, no matter what you’re doing online.
