Welcome, let's improve your business today!
Some people shop almost exclusively online, and with the holidays gifting many folks gift cards, hackers are on the lookout for ways to exploit those who shop via the Internet. What can you do to stay safe while you are shopping online?
Using email to trick users is something that hackers have done for ages, but they usually find themselves tucked away in the spam folder where they belong or blocked entirely by enterprise-level content filters. Hackers, however, are a crafty lot, and they have discovered ways to break through these measures through the use of a surprising third party: social media websites.
All businesses must make securing their infrastructures and reinforcing cybersecurity practices a priority, especially as we move into the new year. This is a concept that involves securing the network, infrastructure, and data from the countless threats out there. Here are three of the most important issues to keep in mind when building your cybersecurity strategy for the new year.

Like most things in life, however, the truth is that there is a spectrum to cybercrime. Let’s take a few moments to consider a few different types of hackers, and the hats that their roles determine they wear.
