Mobile Devices and Cybersecurity: What is your risk?

Can a phone really impact the security of your business? Believe it or not, phones and other mobile devices can put your company at risk – think of the age-old adage: You are only as strong as your weakest link. Our phones themselves, along with other types of mobile devices (such as tablets), are not only at risk to mobile malware, but they are also prone to similar cybersecurity breaches that we see on computers. Why is that? For many, their mobile devices serve as an extension of their computers by aiding in checking emails, facilitating communication, and allowing access to business materials.

Earth Month and Cybersecurity: How do they intertwine?

Earth Month and Cybersecurity: How do they intertwine?

As we gear up for Earth Day, you may be wondering how it has anything to do with cybersecurity – however, our environmental impact is tied to many aspects of the technology field. From proper disposal of our technologically devices to safe environmental use and evaluating the environmental impact of development and use of such devices, there is a constantly growing need to take sustainability into account when it comes to the field. This being the case, Earth Month is a crucial time for industry experts and beyond to highlight the growing E-Waste problem, which not only impacts the environment, but it also zeroes in on an important aspect of cybersecurity: Data Security.

Quantum computers: Do they impact cybersecurity?

Quantum computers: Do they impact cybersecurity?

What are quantum computers? In essence, they use qubits rather than classical bits, creating a powerful device that can solve unique problems and parse a multitude of information. The computers themselves work with principles such as entanglements, and ultimately linked qubits that share information instantly without a concern for distance. While these computers are still in the early stages, and require a special set of conditions to operate, it is crucial that we are aware not only of the potential that these devices have, but also how they will impact cybersecurity structures. Throughout their development, quantum computing has raised questions about how we secure and encrypt our data.
