@Pocharle

I agree with you regarding education and I would also encourage for companies and organization to improve their IT security policies and procedure for the protection of their confidential files and data.

maou_villaflores,

That is a layer of protection but not the BEST way to protect ourselves. There are still pretty smart individuals with very sophisticated software that fall prey to simple phishing scams. So, once again, education and awareness ALONG WITH technology is the best approach (with more emphasis on the education part).

Just my thoughts about the topic "Cybersecurity" as problem. In the current situation this is really hard to control. I guess the best way to protect ourselves from this crime is to install all encryption and security software.

Ms. Daisy,

Although that is true in most cases, what about the situations when you need a communication trail? Even though it's important, email is the best option. Remember, it can be summoned in court cases and counts as reliable eveidence.

Barbara, you're on to something with a campaign. A creative PSA slogan could easily be developed along the lines: "Loose Clicks Sink Ships," or "Only You Can Prevent Cyber Fires," Or "A network is a terrible thing to waste."  Having just spent 3 days recovering from a hard drive crash, I can relate. Even with some of the best screening and security tools onboard, it's still an arms race where cyber-security is concerned.

"If you don't recognize the sender or are unsure, check before you click" or simply delete.

I go with the thought that if it is an important and intended message, the sender will find a better way of communicating a recognizable message!

I like Nemos' slogan. I could run with that for days.  

Great article again, Barb.  This is a huge issue and one that can only be battled if we all do our part. Education of our employees (and employers) is the best route, but security to protect us for the 'just in case' is mandatory. I know it seems hackers are always one step ahead...and they are...but only because we have to know the threat before we can battle it. 

Best thing to do is to stay diligent online. Oh, and keep talking about it.  The more we discuss and collaborate, the more knowledge we put on the table.

Here's a site I use when I am unsure about a shortened link:

Protect your data and your business. 

If you don't recognize the sender or are unsure, check before you click.
