Twitter Chat | The Economic Impact Of Cybercrime

.

SecChat McAfee

 

On Thursday, September 4th there will be #SecChat who will explore the  The Economic Impact Of Cybercrime and is an hour-long Twitter chat. I got invited through Twitter by 

.

#SecChat

.

After long reflection I decided to create a blog about my advice as I think that it would be very difficult to answer these questions by Tweets. There are TOO MANY links and information, as well as advice to share that in the mass of shared Tweets they would get lost 😉 This allows me then in the Tweet on the Chat to post ONLY one link, the link to this blog, where ALL the necessary information are included and I could concentrate on the other Tweets much more easy!

AND I could ALSO use this blog post for my FREE courses about CyberSecurity!

As a reminder (ALSO for me), here below the blog posts about WHAT would get discussed:

I suggest to read my blog post from a previous Twitter Chat WHERE already a lot was discussed, please:

 

Here, below, is about the #SecChat:

.

#SecChat about

.

So here we go, my questions:

  • Q1: What security risks do SMBs need to consider when starting a business and why?
  • Q2: CyberSecurity is OUR ALL Responsibility! SHOULDN’T the basics of CyberSecurity getting taught in schools up from the early age?
  • Q3: WHY aren’t CyberSecurity professionals, especially CyberSecurity companies present at schools!?
  • Q4: WHAT could get done to lowering Cybercrime?

 


Q1: What security risks do SMBs need to consider when starting a business and why?

programmerman-animatedWell, first of all SMBs don’t have to forget that they deal with employees and that THE weakest link in the security chain is the human!

.

Please check my following blog posts who explain in detail:

.

As nearly everyone is using a smartphone today so there is ALSO a MUST to consider a “BYOD-Policy” (Bring Your Own Device) as the use of smartphones could be a BIG security risk to the SMB’s as MOST employees don’t have any knowledge about the basics of Cyber-Security, even that there smartphones and/or tablets, laptops could be infected with virus, trojans, keylogger

Please read my blog post about BYOD below:

.


Q2: CyberSecurity is OUR ALL Responsibility! SHOULDN’T the basics of CyberSecurity getting taught in schools up from the early age?

My personal answer is a clear YES! My prepared FREE courses below:

 AND Today on September 1st 2014 I found this on the internet which I highly WELCOME! Coding in the curriculum for Five-Year-Old with introduction to CyberSecurity, GREAT!

Q4: WHAT could get done to lowering Cybercrime?

Well, there are a lot of possibilities, who are MOSTLY related to ===> EDUCATION <=== and while using Social Media. Personally I use very often Twitter to send my advice to my readers. I started ages ago the ===> Friday Security Check Day <===, hashtag is ===> #FSCD <=== as a reminder and to wake up people to get THE reflexes, check below, please.

.

#FSCD

.

I would feel happy if anybody else would join in to the ===> #FSCD <=== to remind people and to give them good advice, and/or to retweet it, thanks.

.

Concerning the ===> Internet Of Things <=== here below my advice. Would be good if discussed…

.

#SecChat #IoT

.

 

More about the Internet Of Things:

 

And for me the MOST IMPORTANT is to teach ===> Cyber Hygiene <=== in schools and in companies! THE user (us ALL) must have basics knowledge of Cyber Security as it is a national security issue and also a priority for the economy!

.

National Cybersecurity Awareness Month Advocates Good “Cyber Hygiene”

.

Check also what CIO.GOV An Official Website of the United States Government says: Surfing the web. Social networking. Shopping. Even the most innocuous online activities can pose a threat to our nation’s cybersecurity, and all Americans should play a part in protecting it.

.

My curation about Cyber-Hygiene

I advocate ===> CyberHygiene <=== and ===> Proactive THINKing <=== since ages and the below action makes me feel happy!

.

CyberHygiene

 

.

.

I started ALSO days ago to amplify the word ===> #CyberHygiene <=== by posting each day about it on Twitter, see below! WELCOME to join in 😉

.

Twitter CyberHygiene-1

Twitter CyberHygiene-2

Twitter CyberHygiene-3

Twitter CyberHygiene-4

.

I am convinced about that such actions SHOULD get used to make the users (us ALL) ===> #WakeUP <=== for a more secure internet!

DYK: can GET used on 2 ways? 1 way to avoid the worst, another way 2 make things happen by knowing habits, behavior 😉

How To Use Curation For Learning and Even Teaching

I will give you some visual examples below who show you, so you can have a direct impression of it. No need to talk too much (what most of the teachers and educators do, sorry…), we go straight to the point…

Final word

chat iconA security by 100% doesn’t exist and probably NEVER will exist (I am sure about THAT!) , remind the human behavior…, and ALSO  the bugs in programming code of software!

There is one word which any SMB MUST remember ===> Proactive THINKing <===, anything is changing that quick that nobody could act mostly in time!

Related articles:

Stay informed about what is happening on a daily base about Cyber-Security to get prepared for the UNKNOWN! It’s the letter “I” in “ICT“, which means “Information“! Once NEW information gathered which isn’t known YET by the employees, then comes the letter “C“, which means “Communication“! Inform YOUR employees and ICT-Staff as soon as possible, remember that in the “Security Chainanyone MUST be strong!

===> THE MOST IMPORTANT when making training is to NOT use TOO MUCH technology words so that the employees might be able to UNDERSTAND! <===

Ideas For A More Secure Internet

Since already 1999 I was publishing online about the risks and Cyber Security and by seeing the unwillingness of people to learn about it I was going for ===> #DeepTHINKing <=== about WHAT could get done, here below my ideas:

.

Some of the above ideas could get made into practice in ===> #MakerSpaces <=== and/or in ===> #Coding places <===, check below, please:

.

I encourage my readers and followers from Twitter to be ===> lurkers <=== on the #SecChat to learn about it, thanks.
