PABlo created a new topic ' Passwords' in the forum. 9 hours 9 minutes ago

It’s very common for our personal info to appear in a data breach, including emails and passwords. Sad to say, it’s now a fact of online life. Thankfully, knowing is half the battle. There’s much we can do to protect ourselves.

Here’s what you can do right away:

  1. Use a STRONG password on your email account. This is your most sensitive, important online account, so it deserves a strong password that you don’t use on any other web sites.
  2. Subscribe to a free breach notification service. If a web site you use suffers a breach, you’ll receive an alert letting you know. You can then change those passwords. We recommend Have I Been Pwned . This is a free service; there’s no catch or upsell. It’s run by a concerned citizen looking out for other people online.
Here’s what you can do in the coming weeks:
  1. Use a password manager app! They make it much easier to create and use long, complex passwords that are unique for each web site you use. Password reuse is a major risk, allowing a breach on one web site to spread to others. Any reputable password manager will do a good job, including iCloud Keychain for iOS, Mac and Google Saved Passwords for Android, Chrome browser.
  2. Reset your password on web sites where you’ve used the same password as other sites. Use your password manager to generate new passwords. If you need a password manager, and don't know where to get one, check out our top menu, left side, for APPLICATIONS > RESOURCES > APPS & SOFTWARE TOOLS > PASSWORD MANAGEMENT.
  3. Enable two-factor authentication (2FA) on web sites that support it , especially your email account!
This is a lot to tackle all at once. Take it step by step. Please feel free to reply to this topic with any questions. You’ve got this, and we’re here to help.

PABlo created a new topic ' How Apps on Android Share Data with Facebook - Report' in the forum. 2 months ago

There's a Whole List of Popular Apps Sending Your Data Off to Facebook

Popular Android apps send off your data even if you never log in to Facebook with them.

The new study from Privacy International sheds light on a slew of popular Android apps that provide user data to Facebook without the explicit consent of users who don't necessarily have to be logged in to Facebook or even maintain an account to have their data snagged.

Of the 34 apps examined in the study, 20 were found to share data with Facebook, sometimes at the exact point of activating the app. The apps examined, which include the language study guide Duolingo and the travel-booking giant Kayak, were built using the open-source Facebook Software Development Kit (SDK). Sixty-one percent of the apps tested were found to transmit data back to Facebook "from the moment a user opens the app," according to the study.

PABlo created a new topic ' Women in Cyber Take the Spotlight' in the forum. 2 months ago

Women are key to solving the workforce shortage, which is expected to reach 3.5 million open jobs by 2022.

As the cybersecurity industry continues to struggle to meet a workforce gap – an estimated 3.5 million jobs are expected to remain unfilled by 2021 – it’s clear that encouraging women and those from diverse backgrounds to pursue careers in the field will be a key factor in staying ahead of the threat landscape. Changes at the RSA conference, scheduled for February in San Francisco, along with a handful of large companies stepping up to the plate with training and recruitment efforts, show that the industry may finally be getting serious about addressing the issue.

While diversity in general is an issue in tech, women are particularly underrepresented. They hold about 26 percent of tech jobs according to a research report by The American Association of University Women (AAUW), and in cybersecurity specifically that drops to just 11 percent of roles globally being held by women according to the (ISC)2 2017 Global Information Security Workforce: Women in Cyber Security study.

PABlo created a new topic ' Population Mountains' in the forum. 2 months ago

This is a story about how to perceive the population of cities.

Matt Daniels has created a way of showing where each dot on the map represents 1,000,000 square meters and the areas with the most people show as deeper shades of red. Then he shows another way to look at population, by growing each dot into a 3D block appearing as Population Mountains.
