cyberSecurity 72dpi_400x400HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (April 21, 2014) — Not only has Target’s database been compromised, but Neiman Marcus and other online retailers are discovering data breaches as well. Thinking of connecting your baby monitor or home security system to your smart phone? Think twice - attackers may be able to use your mobile device as their entry point into your life and family’s security.

“As always, you should be cautious about opening file attachments or clicking suspicious links or links from unknown sources. Protect your mobile devices against malware and exploits by using security software. Finally, use two-factor authentication wherever possible, and be sure to set up strong, unique passwords for the various sites and services you visit and rely on, so that a data breach at one site doesn’t compromise your entire online identity.” says Bradley.
