Being Hacked (and Again)
It can happen to anyone, even a cybersecurity expert
A new kind of war is brewing. The Hacked Again E-Book shows how cyberwarfare has become a very real part of our business, our government, our technology and our culture. We’ve seen terms like hacking, cybersecurity and DDoS explode into our popular vernacular and for good reason. Real cyberattacks have increased exponentially in the past 12 months and the growing fear of them has gone off the charts. Still, many of us do not incorporate simple, best practices when it comes to things like creating passwords and engaging with social media.
I want to help make things like strong passwords and VPNs a basic part of our lives, not just geek terms. Join me in this mission. Watch, follow me and spread the word to others. In the meantime, stay safe.
Hacked Again details the ins and outs of a cybersecurity expert and CEO of a top wireless security tech firm, Scott Schober, as he struggles to understand the motives and mayhem behind his being hacked. By day, he runs a successful security company and reports on the latest cyber breaches in the hopes of offering solace and security tips to millions of viewers. But Scott begins to realize his worst fears are only a hack away as he falls prey to an invisible enemy.
