OAC 218 Are YOU 'Cyber' Safe?

I know everyone is tired of hearing about hacked emails and the FBI's involvement, but today I heard an FBI agent and had to share this information with you.

First off, I forgot to mention in my broadcast that even apps can contain viruses.  Did you know that?  I sure never would have suspected that.  But that therein lies the problem.  Those of us that are innocent of using any of our internet for ill gain, are also ignorant, often times, of the dangers.

This FBI agent went on to share with us all the different schemes that hackers use. You've probably heard the phrase 'phishing', have you heard that there's 'spear phishing', too!   

Phishing is a mass hack without zoning in on a particular group. Spear phishing is very targeted.  

So some of the things I learned today that I want to share, is do not post the department you work in if gives you have access to funds or private files. (You will hear the story I heard today on my show that will explain that more.)  Therefore, you might want to be more vague on your Social Media profiles.

I also share about a recent Trojan attack that I experienced that was trying to access my data through 'the back door'.  Fortunately I have a brother who is an expert in that field and helped me avert any damage.  Listen to my show to hear how you can avoid that, too.  Just know you NEVER, EVER want to call the number flashing on your screen.  

So most of my show is about this subject, but then I conclude with my happy celebration of being with Send Out Cards for 11 years now.  That's a long time for a lot of network marketing careers.  I know longer ones, but I also know shorter ones.  Please help me celebrate by sending a card on me, just go to: "OneAwesomeCard.com"  (I won't call as a follow up - just send a a card to someone you care about.)

So I hope you pass this information along to save someone from a cyber meltdown.  And thank you for listening.

Passing On A Smile,

Gail
