Security myth busting and spring cleaning

“Cybercriminals won’t waste their time targeting me”: You might not be a high-profile figure, but that doesn’t mean you’re not on cybercriminals’ radars. In fact, the everyday person is the perfect target for social engineering, which is when an attacker manipulates you into sharing personal information used for a cyber attack. Social engineers do this for a living and it’s a low cost, low effort way to reach their goals, especially in comparison to physically breaking technology or trying to target someone in the public eye. Protect yourself by being aware of social engineering and taking advantage of products that are secure by default like Gmail, Chrome, etc.
