Now is the time to ensure your Digital Security

Jul 30, 2008
There is an old quip that ignorance is bliss. No. Ignorance is stupid and reckless. It may feel freeing. You may feel relieved of the need to worry about things you do not fathom, but how blissful is it when your carelessness leads you to becoming a crime statistic?

Cyber crime is a reality of the modern world. Corporate, financial, and medical IT systems have been breached and personal information and sensitive business files stolen. National security has been threatened by ineffective prevention efforts. Personal identities have been taken by thieves who robbed their victims of everything. Digital security, therefore, is something with which people should familiarize themselves.

Included in this is mobile security. With the capability to carry laptops, cell phones, and other handheld devices come added security risks, and every user should understand them. There is another old saying-far more helpful than the aforementioned quote-that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Nothing could be truer! How many thousands of victims are out there are feeling stupid for allowing themselves to be so vulnerable when the crime against could have been averted?

Security can be achieved, both on a corporate and personal level, by a combination of three things: education, policy, and proper devices. Learn all you can about digital crime and about the highest quality technologies to prevent it. These tools include software packages, exterior devices, better and better SIM cards, one-time passwords, and electronic passports which can be used to secure information and transactions. Make sure you are adequately protected by the highest quality security devices. Using your fresh knowledge about cyber crime, implement policies for usage, and do not be lax about them.

Ignorance is not bliss, it is the doorway to a world of trouble. Do not set yourself up for disaster. Find out about mobile security and you may always reap the benefits of modern technology.
