CARLSBAD, Calif., Oct. 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- At least 111 million individuals' data was compromised due to hacking or information technology problems in 2015, according to a report released by cloud security company Bitglass. Monitoring is no longer enough to protect compromised victims.
Prilock Security has released a fully branded 1-Year, Securing Your Digital Life Awareness Briefing and Alert Service for the presidential candidates, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Proceeds are donated to the campaigns or parties within the Federal Election Commission guidelines. Prilock also displays the percent of support for each candidate of those interested in cyber protection.
Both Hillary and Donald know our critical services are under constant cyberattack from nation states, cyber gangs, and hacktivists, all with different agendas. Each citizen is also a target of sophisticated email phishing campaigns, social engineering attacks using phone calls, text messages, and social media. Unless every person using the internet with a smartphone, tablet, laptop, or WiFi is shown the traps used to steal their identity, finances, personal and company information, they will remain easy targets for hackers.
According to Dan Hirning, founder of Prilock: "We didn't want another training with a lot of technical talk or large lists of do's and don'ts that won't help anyone. We designed the lessons as if a hacker was showing his friend or parents how to be safer online. This includes how they are targeted, what he's after, and the tricks and psychology he uses to con people."
Prilock created the first security awareness training produced specifically for anyone who wants to be secure online, but doesn't want to become a computer expert. From seniors to CEO's, moms to managers, following these simple best practices will make you safer than 98% of the people online, and a harder target. If you own a business, do online banking, pay bills, email, or use social media, you need to understand how you are targeted and what to do to be safe.
