How Smart Devices Could Derail Your Business this Holiday Season

Large corporations and well-known brands get a lot of media attention when there’s a security breach. But today, even the smallest business is potentially a target for cyber crime. Cyber criminals have an ever-growing pool of technology that gives them the ability to target hundreds, if not thousands of unsuspecting victims simultaneously. The amount of data breached can be just as big as though they targeted a huge corporation like Apple, IBM or even the U.S. Government. This is especially true with the growing number of devices connected to the internet: The Internet of Things (IoT).

UnGagged and Unfiltered SEO Strategy

Talks range from Reverse-Engineering to An Insight into Illegal SEO…

Do you have the right to read this post?

You pay your water bill, your electric bill, your phone bill. We take for granted that these are basic utilties that most of us need to live healthy, comfortable lives. The services are brought into our homes and we pay to use them, as anyone who’s ever had to pay their own bills understands. They are public utilities, designed to affordably take care of our everyday needs and keep us clean, warm, and safe. It makes sense that everyone is entitled to have those basic needs met. However, an open debate has been raging over whether the internet should be classified as a public utility. The main question is whether or not we are entitled to the internet. Is it…
