It’s never pleasant to discover that you’ve been hacked. The anxiety that it creates makes it difficult to trust the systems that you have in place, especially if important info appears to have been taken by cyber-criminals.
We have seen large password hacks recently including: LinkedIn, eHarmony, and Yahoo. Hacks so large some in the industry call this the Password Wars. Unfortunately for the general public—we are losing. However, before the trumpets play, let’s give them a fight. Our feature blogger Darren Leroux has touched on this subject before and inspired me to really take a look at innovations that may change the way you secure your information.
What I’d like touch on today with this post is a common misconception about data encryption and security. When I tell people who I work for and what we do, many people assume what we do is protect people from hackers. If people use our software the various security breaches people hear about would be prevented. I’d like to say that we could prevent any kind of hacks etc. but it simply isn’t true.
