Your Life Your Cyber Live Your Security


How Secure is Your Cyber Life

How secure is your cyber lifeDoes all this connectivity give us more communication? Are you happy with the results of your own cyber security functionality? How secure is your cyber life? I would like to talk some on how security is today.

Email has been around for a long time now. It has been a threat to regular mail for years now. It is quick compared to physical mail. Can anyone remember far enough back to remember any troubles with physical mail? I mean have you ever lost physical mail or had your mail tampered with.

Yes there have been mail strikes, and even some mail bombs. There have been other tampering with the mail such as biochemical threats.

It seems today that a person has to concern themselves with the security of your email all the time. Just look at Yahoo. Two big server breaches in the last for years. Should this be normal today? I think not.

There is so much stuff or data that one has out there today. There are documents, pictures, videos, and email. Some people even have a lot more out there because of the career they are in.

Recent Cyber Breaches Revealed

Looking at what happened to Yahoo I think that this is a shame that this even happened. They are one of the oldest cyber companies out there. From what I have read they have been lax in maintaining an efficient cyber security for their servers.

It does not matter if you and new to the game or seasoned in the game. Maintaining proper and up-to-date cyber security is vital. Not only do your clients depend on that so does your reputation.

Yes I understand that Yahoo has been going through some growing pains. This does not matter. I have had a yahoo email for years. As a result I thought that because they were still around that they must be doing something right.

I also have used their Flickr account for some time now. Thus, I wonder how credible is Yahoo’s security on protecting my pictures for me. As a result I can say today that right now it is low.

The Use of The Cloud

I use many cyber iClouds. It is becoming more clear to me that nothing on any iCloud is safe. There are so many ways to lose your data today. Yes, more than a good old fire that our ancestors had to worry about.

It seems that you need a lot of security these days. Everywhere you turn you are told of the need for two-step security in cyberspace. People keep asking when will this be enough.

Peoples Cyber Security Responsibility

I find that people do not understand their responsibility for the security of their own data. Especially the older generation. Many of them think that no one can get it.

This is the way it is with my in-laws. They have lived on a farm for more years that most people reading this have been alive. Locking things up was never an issue with them. They seemed to live in a safe area with little to no theft.

It is hard to get them to understand that what they do on the computer now is not secure. They think that because it is in their home that everything is safe. No matter how much time is spent on telling them of Internet security issues. That is once they access the Internet they can have security situations that they do not want. They do not understand because they do not see the Internet.

Is that the way it is with you. What you can not see you are not worried about. If you are a Yahoo user you know that what you can not see can affect you. This could mean such things as Identity Theft for some. It could mean monetary loss for others. Do you want to take that risk today.

In The End Who is More Responsible

In the end it does not matter who is your server. They have a responsibility to keep your data secure. You have a responsibility to keep your data secure. That means using all security available. Two-step security is an added benefit. Especially now that we have cell phones.

Two-step security is most effective when you use it by having the system send you a text. Not only is it more secure for you. If someone accesses any system with two-step turned on then you get a notation. How you say! Well the system sends your cell phone a notification. If you did not access that account then you know someone is trying to tamper with that account.

I will leave you with this thought. With Yahoo’s new hack revealed don’t you think it is time to be more conscious of your cyber security? With every account that offers you two-step security access you should use it. Is not your life online your life? Why let someone else take it over on you?
