The month of October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM), so let's look at some numbers. It is estimated that there is an attempted data hack on devices with internet access every 39 seconds and Malware alone accounted for over 800 million infections in 2018, 98% of mobile attacks being against Android users. This means that we are constantly vulnerable to attacks and rely heavily on our phones’ security to protect us. Cyber attacks can be scary and can affect entire families’ personal information and security. Unfortunately, the more time we spend on our phones, the more personal data is collected from us as potential risks for theft. It is estimated that cyber criminals will steal 33 billion personal information records by 2023.
The best way to protect yourself from attacks is to proactively prepare and protect your devices from attacks before they happen.
