I have had several family members and friends lose access to their social media accounts, have malicious emails sent from their address, and even succumb to ransomware. The nature of these “hacks” or “attacks” varies widely, so there isn’t a “one-size-fits-all” solution. But, even though there are many ways to break into a house, doesn’t mean we don’t lock our doors or leave the key in the mailbox for everyone to use.
A couple of years ago I had the privilege of attending a seminar about electronic privacy and security led by former FBI computer crimes investigator Michael Bazzell. If this is your first time hearing that name or digging into this topic I highly encourage you to visit his websites, listen to his podcasts, and/or read his book. His blog is a great place to start.
