How do we handle what we control on the internet? How can we make sure we don't get attacked in real life?
Back in the day, nobody really thought about the idea of hacking. Now, fighting these types of attacks are now becoming essential as cybersecurity is turning into a hot commodity. In order to take precautions, people try to install softwares such as McAfee in order to protect themselves. The problem is that sometimes the software may not be what it seems. There are fake sites which say that they are the original, but are not. Never, EVER download software from a third party, always download them from the original website. Another way to stay secure is to never post information on whether you will or will not be home. Think of this, suppose you are packing for a trip and you post on Facebook or whatever you normally post. On the post it says something like “CANNOT WAIT FOR VACATION TOMORROW’. Right then and there, people automatically know when you will most likely not be home, and it can be a stranger depending on how people view your post. Now someone who knows where you live can go and rob at your house, and you won’t know until you get back from your vacation. Unfortunately, cases like these occur often, and while social media can be fun, you need to be careful about what and how you are putting information about yourself. It is best not to put your personal address.
