Trust Issues

security

I had the unfortunate experience of having my school email hacked. Can you imagine trying to process final grades and finding 200,000+ emails in my in box- not one of them from a student? The havoc that ensued caused me great pain and lots of time. After all was said and done, I had to admit that the hacker got into the system by convincing me he was an official part of the school IT system.

My email problems pale in comparison to Target’s data breach connected to 40 million credit and debit card accounts. I’m willing to bet money that the source was some innocent employee tricked into one or two deadly clicks that in-turn opened the system to hacker thieves.

It remains our responsibility to be diligent in monitoring all of our banking, investment and credit for irregular activity and to act immediately to prevent unnecessary loss and grief. If you have a target credit card here is some helpful information.
