If a laptop is stolen or lost, and the data is not backed up, you just lost it all. Worst of all, even if you had it locked with a strong password, it’s very likely to get cracked. Once the thief succeeds, any private data that is unencrypted is free for the taking. One solution: keep sensitive and important data, files, pictures, contracts, etc., on a secure private cloud service, so it’s never on your employer’s hard drive in the first place. By storing this information in the cloud, you can immediately revoke access when a device goes missing. Side Tip: If you have important family photos, store it in Shutterfly or some other photo-storing cloud application so those are backed up as well.

The “Dark Web” or “Deep Web” is a part of the World Wide Web we know and love that is ONLY accessible via a special software. This software allows users and website operators to remain completely anonymous and untraceable. That’s why it’s the playground for hackers and cybercriminals.

Because hacking IS a for-profit business, there are criminal entities who steal, combine and sell personal information on the Dark Web. Passwords, social security numbers, bank account information and credit cards are all at risk. There is a VERY HIGH probability YOUR information is being sold on the Dark Web – so how do you know?
