Behind the Hacker: An Infographic Story
A Beginner’s Guide to Thwarting Hackers is a new infographic recently released by SecurityCoverage, Inc. The infographic’s intention is to educate Internet users on the importance of creating strong and diverse passwords for all online accounts and keeping them protected.
The company feels most people know that they should protect their passwords, but they don’t truly understand just how much their lives can be affected if those passwords are hacked. Therefore, people often do not take proper security measures to ensure all their personal information is safe. SecurityCoverage encourages everyone to engage in safer online activities by creating stronger passwords and protecting all personal information through secure applications, such as the company’s Password Genie data protection app.
The infographic shows the multitude of ways hackers can access sensitive information, both online and offline. The infographic gives viewers a better understanding of how hackers obtain sensitive data and what they typically do with it once it’s obtained. Also detailed are the effects of some of the most extensive recent online breaches of information from widely known companies including eHarmony, LinkedIn, and Sony PlayStation Network.
