Advice for IoT, Smart-Home, Smart-TVs, etc.

As I already mentioned, years ago, in my tutorial <===> WHY Is It A MUST To Have Basics Knowledge Of Cyber-Security In A Connected Technology World!? <===> let us dig a bit deeper into IoT, Internet of Things and its implications of the users awareness AND responsibility.

Actually (January 2020 and even before…) there are a lot of warnings from Cyber-Security experts and EVEN from the FBI concerning Smart-homes and its connected devices:

SO NOW, after having bought a Smart-TV and other so-called smart devices which are connecting to the internet, WHAT to do? First of all: do YOU really need it, as nearly any devices are getting sold with IoT capabilities? IF NOT, WHAT to do?

  • Before connecting the power:
    • Check your Router settings and block any unknown devices!
    • IF you are able to access your IT device, change straight the manufacturer password; give it a STRONG password!

Concerning passwords: I recommend to use a Password-Manager such as:

With a Password-Manager you just need to remember a Master-Password and ALL other Passwords will get generated with a STRONG Password from the software itself!!

CyberSecurity: I DON’T accept WHY people DON’T understand to apply Updates on THEIR computers & Smartphones as it is about Responsibility AND Cyber-Hygiene

Let us talk about Hygiene…

Strange, I make an introduction about Hygiene in an Cyber-Security Blog, ISN’T it?!! Well, there is a reason behind:

WHEN WE use a computer, Smartphone and/or any OTHER technical device (such as cars as well…) WE need to take care of them! AND our body? The same: WE need to have the daily reflexes to make for sure that WE don’t expose it to invasions of bacteria, virus, etc. Examples given: brushing teeth, showers, washing the hands after a toilet go, washing the hands before and after a meal, etc. Wearing a Condom when having sex, a necessary protection! Well OUR condom for the technical devices is the Anti-Virus, a MUST for Any-devices!!! Any-Devices, Apple as well?!!! YES!!! Please check the WHY in my Curation below please:

WE are used to these reflexes, aren’t WE?! At least WE should be!! SO, for computers, Laptops, Smartphones, tablets (iPads etc.), IoT devices (Smart-Home), WE should do the same, they costs a LOT of money and expensive stuff should get taken care of!! THE OTHER reason as well is, THAT WE are using the internet with THEM and so WE are meeting OTHER people with OUR technical device (which ever one it is…).

SO, that exactly the same as WHEN WE are meeting (as persons) OTHER people in Real-World: WHEN WE have a flu, WE will infect OTHER persons with it and an epidemic will occur!! WHEN OUR technical devices (which ever one it is…), connected to the internet, are NOT Up-To-date with the latest Updates they are vulnerable to threats (see it as a virus, e.g.) and once infected, WE will infect ALL the OTHERS as well (epidemic…)!!

As WE use these #AnyDevices with #AnyOS on a daily base, WE SHOULD be aware and develop a sense of Responsibility to protect each other! 

ICT RESPONSIBILITYWell, the above written is ONLY an introduction, please read my Blog posts in different languages (EN, FR, DE):

My courses about Cyber-Security were mandatory in Luxembourg (Europe) EDUcation in 2004, learn more here please:

Backup A MUST With ALL The Malware AND Especially Ransomware Around! | CyberSecurity

Backup A MUST With ALL The Malware AND Especially Ransomware Around! | CyberSecurity

Backup A MUST With ALL The Malware AND Especially Ransomware Around!

programmerman-animatedNOT sure if YOU followed OR if YOU are conscientious about WHAT is going around actually on the internet concerning “Malware” and “CyberSecurity“, BUT YOU SHOULD!!! THIS is a <===> Wake-UP Call <===> take it serious please! That is called ALSO <===> #ProactiveTHINKing <===> I will NOT post another article on the How-To to make a backup as there are already so much around, BUT I will show YOU WHY it is necessary for everyone to make a backup and delivering YOU the BEST articles and tutorials to do so…

Cross-platform malware is around and infects any OS (Operating System)!!! [START Text from Kaspersky] PC, Mac, Smartphone and Tablet users are under ever-evolving threat from computer viruses and malware. Taking action means understanding what you’re up against. Here’s a look at the major types of malware and their potential impact. [END Text from Kaspersky]

Learn more:

Backup tools and articles:

For those WHO are using a “Antivirus Security Suite”: MOST of them have ALSO an “Online-Backup” in the cloud as integrated service… example below… Personally I prefer an external hard disk 😉

.

NIS-BACKUP

.

Backup for Mac:

Backup-Tools, a non-exhaustive list:

For Windows users there is EVEN a FREE back-up-tool integrated, learn more:

.

.


 

 

 

programmerman-animatedFor private persons I suggest to make weekly backup, companies SHOULD do a daily backup! A good day to make weekly backups is certainly on the weekend for private persons; Over Twitter I give a reminder through the hashtag <===> #FSCD <===> which means <===> Friday Security Check Day <===> where YOU will find useful tips for BEST protection, backup included! Follow that hashtag, please…

 

With the low prices of external hard disks this will not be expensive and for sure less expensive as when YOUR computer is infected!!

Example for prices (Europe):

.

Keywords necessary for me to create this blog post: Costs of an external Harddisk, ONLINE backup by Antivirus Suites, weekly backup of full HD for private persons, CASES tutorials and advice, BeeSecure cloud, Acronis FREE book for Dummies, Microsoft FREE Backup possibilities, Mac possibilities of Backup, <===> #FSCD <===> Reminder, Ransomware, Malware, video tutorials, links, how much time for a backup?, organization, weekly tasks, CyberHygiene, SHOULD be integrated in eSkills,

PracTICE: How DOES The Internet Help ME In My Private Life, Professional Development, Job AND Career

programmerman-animatedI am a pioneer and was always one of the first to try out NEW stuff since my young age, very curious about it WHAT that could be and WHAT would be my advantage to use it. Let us call it <===> Learning By Doing <===> to get some knowledge, skills and experience out of that adventure 😉 Did I say <===> adventure!? <===> YES, it is actually! An adventure to discover NEW stuff where one doesn’t know where it will end 😉 BUT it is a BIG fun ALSO and one learns a lot through it! This attitude brings one ALSO to a <===> Life-Long LEARNing <===> strategy which I wouldn’t miss, whatever age one has! I am actually (2015) aged sixty (60), retired since 2014 (pedagogical/andragogical ICT Instructor) and STILL learning on a daily base as it is a pleasure for me.

It is ALSO a pleasure for me to share my knowledge with OTHERS (especially EDU related people) on Social Media Twitter, through curation and blogging. The internet (I started 1998) is a GREAT resource and a wonderful <===> Virtual World <===> which needs to get discovered and where WE need to know ALSO its dangers, same as in <===> Real World <===> let us call it <===> Awareness and Digital CitiZENship!

Before WE start, the above title is a long one, let us break it down to the different Topics: private life, Professional Development, job and career.


How Does The Internet Help ME In My Private Life!?

programmerman-animatedAs already mentioned I started using the internet in 1998 with a very slow 56k Dial-Up Modem (which made ALSO a lot of noise…) and I found out about the search engines and the How-To to find information on it. Then I discovered about Cyber Security problems, virus and Co by reading specialized Computer-Magazines. YES, that existed already at that time!!! I was telling OTHERS about those threats; THEY told me that I am crazy as THEY didn’t realize its existence! SO… I continued learning about it and I became a vigilant internet user. Knowledge and skills which I developed through the years, see on the bottom of this blog post, please.  BUT, as a normal user, how can the internet help me in my private life!?

Well, a lot actually: I can check for Restaurants, I can book my holidays online, I can buy stuff online, I can book nearly WHATEVER I want online, I can search for BEST prices online for WHATEVER, I can prepare my holidays with special interactive maps (ThingLink), I can use “Google maps” to find my way, even with “Streetmap” which makes my traveling much easier, I can find cooking and baking recipes as well as tutorials on YouTube, I can share my experience and life experience through blogging and curation

Internet history:

Some examples of blogs and curation about gardening (flowers), cooking, festivals:

Some special online tools:

.


How Does The Internet Help ME In My Professional Development!?

programmerman2Because of the internet I have a 24/7 access and I can learn whenever, wherever I want: SO… I can plan my learning on my OWN pace, alone as an autodidact (self-directed learning) and/or through Social Media Twitter. I use curation on each day and I develop through curation my <===> Personal [Professional] Knowledge Management. I use ALSO blogging with WordPress. And I use Twitter as well. Through the internet I learn much more quicker, especially through <===> curation!

.

Find out WHY and the How-To:

 

.


How Did The Internet Help ME In My Job!?

programmerman-animatedI found a new job because of my ICT skills, even that I became an “pedagogical/andragogical ICT course instructor“, check below please for the full story:

Even several articles from me were published in the press and a University in Germany is referring to my FREE online courses, check below please:

WHAT’S my message and WHY did I create this blog post!?

Firts of all I get a lot of profit out of the internet and the connections which I make with others: Well, I will encourage all youth and also adults, seniors, oldies to become <===>Life-Long LEARNers <===> and staying Up-To-Date with their knowledge, especially concerning their skills in ICT, called NOW <===> #eSkills <===>! In the modern world YOU will change YOUR job probably +/- 12 times in YOUR working career, it is very rare to stay life-long in the same job and/or same company!!! SO… The workforce is looking for people with ICT skills which YOU mostly didn’t learn at school, right!? 

YOU won’t have (mostly) the time to learn by visiting courses, right!? START to become Life-Long LEARNers by LEARNing on YOUR OWN pace, by becoming <===> Autodidacts <===> Self-Directed LEARNers. YOU are able to, I did it, so can YOU!? 😉

I found a job because of my ICT eSkills and I am STILL LEARNing on a daily base routine for being Up-To Date with my <===> Professional Development <===>, even being retired NOW! THE pleasure of LEARNing!

I did THE <===> ICT PracTICE <===> and THAT’S WHAT the workforce needs!!!


 Due to my eSkills I could share my knowledge AND expertise ALSO with the below mentioned as well as to a broad range of visitors from around the globe!

CyberHygiene For Beginners, Easy To follow Steps For Anyone | Reflexes To Get Used To

We are ALL responsible for the internet

.

Internet safety is the responsibility of EVERYONE! It isn’t actually THAT difficult to apply a healthy behavior on the internet to stay secure, one needs to have some reflexes, daily reflexes… Let us call them <===> CyberHygiene <===> as they are about care anyway.

WHAT do WE have to take care about!? Check below please:

.

 

  • Updates about our “Operating System” (OS)
  • Updates about so-called “Third Party Programs”
  • Back-up from our files and/or the whole Hard Disk
  • Installation of protection-software, anti-malware, anti-spyware tools included…
  • Protection of our privacy
  • Encryption
  • Secure Passwords

MOST of the above mentioned are automated tasks, SO NO way to NOT use THEM 😉 GET used to IT! GET the reflexes!

For more in depth knowledge, check below please (more theory):

The PracTICE / How To Get The Right Reflexes To Stay Secure?

programmerman-animated

          • First of ALL, check my blog ===> Cyber-Security Practice: Learn it in one week <=== and follow ALL the steps.
          • Chose a day in the week where YOU control YOUR updates and YOUR computers & mobiles security! I suggest the Friday, as I created on Twitter the “Friday Security Check Day“, hashtag = #FSCD. Get used to it on any Friday, get THE reflex!
  • On any second Tuesday on each month Microsoft and Adobe publish new updates, install THEM! THEY are a MUST! It’s the Patch-Tuesday!
  • Introduce a pledge in YOUR family, where every family member MUST sign and accept it! It will give a Community feeling and RESPONSIBILITY!

WHAT Are THE Skills Needed From Students In The Future!? OR, WHAT Are THE Jobs Look Like In The Future!?

That are actually questions which I get asked very often from people and where I could ask ONLY the first one! WHAT Are THE Skills Needed From Students In The Future!? Well, there is one well renown person WHO explains it BEST in my opinion, and that is Howard GARDNER. Please check the picture below to understand.

.

Synthesizing Mind-5 Minds for the future

.

When YOU have a closer look than YOU will realize that the <===> Synthesizing Mind <===> is THE major skill needed! I use it since ages in my courses and with a big success! Actually ALL my blogs and blog posts are based on it.

programmerman-animatedFacts to consider and advice:

YOU SHOULD explain that to YOUR LEARNers by designing the courses and tell THEM that they shouldn’t fear, that they should tell YOU when being in trouble, YOU should tell them that YOU take ALL the necessary time so that THEY will understand it, YOU should encourage them at any moment so that they will find the pleasure to LEARN 😉 YOU SHOULD use Empathy, observing them and find out WHO are those who are shy; the ones WHO won’t tell you when there is a problem. YOU SHOULD interact with them, looking over their shoulders and finding out WHERE the problem is.

That is the hardest part BUT the MOST IMPORTANT one as when they understood that they could find confidence in YOU, then they will advance in their LEARNing, THEY NEED confidence in YOU and in THEMSELVES!

Thus meaning: make the LEARNing individual! Take care of each person till they have understood it. It is like <===> differentiated instruction <===> EDUcation, BUT more coaching than teaching. In one phrase, differentiated instruction is primarily suiting instructional means to meet individual learning needs.

YOU can download the 3 pdf’s merged together here <===> 3 PDF’s-document_fusionne

.

The above mentioned could get updated by more actually, such as: collaboration, coaching, TEAMTEACHing, etc. for 21st Century Skills (left hand bottom). In upper-right corner YOU could add as well: videos, animations, comics, Skype, Webquests, etc.

How Are Leading Countries In EDUcation Implement This!?

Well, when WE talk about leading countries in EDUcation MOST think certainly about Finland in Europe, which is true! BUT, there are ALSO other countries worth to have a look on it and to learn from them, as well as Luxembourg in Europe who is starting its NEW EDUReform in September 2015! I will present YOU my favorites below from WHOM I learned a lot online:

WHAT Are THE Jobs Look Like In The Future!?

Well, there is certainly no one WHO could answer that question! One can ONLY speculate about it: there will certainly be a lot of jobs who will be created because of Social Media, Internet of Things and Cyber Security; some certainly also from the MakerED industry an I guess that (my prediction) that the Cyber Hygiene sector would become the future jobs market as well! WHY in Cyber Hygiene!? WHAT is Cyber Hygiene anyway!?

As Cybercrime as also Cyberespionage, so as privacy problems will certainly NOT going away, it is important if not a MUST that the employees of companies are well trained about those risks! There is certainly a big market in training employees.
