Constant Vigilance! Be Smart When Working From Your Smartphone

Added: 19.08.2016 20:47 | 40 views | 0 comments

In the immortal words of Alastor "Mad-Eye Moody": constant vigilance!
There's a that your business will experience a data breach in the next two years. And with almost 5 million phone attacks per year, it's time we get smart about working from our smartphones.
In Ditch Your Desk! Rule Your Business Empire with Your Smartphone!, I shared how we can easily manage our business from our mobile's using apps. While I'm not going to give up working wherever I want, it's time to actively protect our business information from falling into the wrong hands.
It's time to practice constant vigilance!
The Wounded Gazelle Theory
Here's a sobering thought: It's much easier to hack a person than it is to hack a business. It's the proverbial wounded gazelle theory. A predator (our demon hacker) has a difficult time taking down the entire herd (our business). Yet, it's not that easy to target one business owner or employee who's lazily enjoying an Iced Oprah Cinnamon Chai Tea Latte at Starbucks, while using their free Wi-Fi.
Here's a quote from our favorite fictional hacker, Elliot Alderson, from :

"People always make the best exploits. I've never found it hard to hack most people. If you listen to them, watch them, their vulnerabilities are like a neon sign screwed into their heads."

Walk into any cafe, in any city in the country. You can easily pick out who is working on their phone. You don't have to stop working from your smartphone and you'll still be identified as a gazelle. Someone just waiting to be attacked.
But you don't have to be a wounded gazelle.
Become a Hack-Blocker
In his article, How to stop hackers from stealing your information on public Wi-Fi, author says "Hackers want to sit between you and the websites you visit in order to look at your information. They do this with little effort on public Wi-Fi. Besides the lack of security, all sorts of different people might their share sensitive information through public Wi-Fi."
There's a lot you can do to protect your phone's integrity. Add a lock when you're not using it, always keep the software updated, and only download apps from trusted sources. But if you're going to conduct business on your phone, install software like Norton WiFi Privacy or Avast Mobile Security & Antivirus.

There are some that argue that you can set you your phone to do most of what security apps do. This is probably true. Yet, why take the chance that you get it wrong? I'm not interested in learning how to defend myself from mobile hackers, so I'll use technology as my hack-blocker. I still need to understand the basics, but I'll trust my wingman to help me out.
The Threat is Real
It's incredibly naive to believe that our mobiles are safe. of all U.S. eCommerce and 34% globally. Not only that, but more and more people are working directly from their phones. That means using file-sharing apps, accessing and PayPal accounts, and even scanning checks directly into your bank account. This all adds up to a major security threat, not only for you but your business too.
None of this means we have to stop working from our mobiles. It just means we have to be smart about what we do and take the threat seriously.
Constant vigilance, my friends!

Netflix Is Coming To More Hotel Rooms: Can This Boost The Company's Revenues?

Added: 19.08.2016 18:46 | 36 views | 0 comments

Recently Netflix announced a partnership with hospitality company Enseo to provide the Netflix app in more hotels. Under this agreement, guests staying in hotels with devices powered by Enseo can watch Netflix content either by using their existing Netflix account or signing up for a new one. Enseo’s systems are available in 300 hotels in the U.S. and the company says that it has more than doubled its revenue every six months for the last two years. We believe Netflix’s expansion in the hospitality segment ensures that its loyal customers can watch its content more conveniently on a full screen TV, avoiding Wi-Fi constraints and small screen laptops when travelling. Easy availability of its content while traveling can also attract new consumers who can try the service while on vacation and convert into regular subscribers later.

5 Ways Entrepreneurs Can Protect Themselves from Fraud

Added: 18.08.2016 22:31 | 31 views | 0 comments

Fraud! The one thing that people take for granted until it happens to them.
By then it's too late.
You can be a victim of many kinds of fraudulent activities. But they all stem from two things... there's one after your money and another after your identity.
I'm going to show you 5 quick and easy ways to make you less susceptible to fraud.
Use Secure Online Payment Methods
As an entrepreneur you'll most likely pay suppliers, freelancers and a ton of other people. The problem usually comes from people who ask you to pay before they do the work. You never know if they'll deliver or not.
But one way to protect yourself is by paying through a trusted platform and avoid paying through unsecure platforms.
Trusted platforms include PayPal, AliPay, Payoneer and Amazon Payments.
Unsecure platforms include direct bank transfer, Western Union and any other payment method that doesn't have a group of people monitoring payments. What makes these unsecure isn't because of any technical faults... but it's the fact that these methods of payments should be used for family and friends only.
So make sure you use the right platforms for business. Don't pay a business partner like you'd pay a friend.
Shred or Wash All Documents You Don't Need
Bills, invoices, bank statements and anything with your personal or business details shouldn't be thrown in the trash. They must be destroyed first.
Two ways to destroy documents is by shredding them with a shredder or mixing them in a chlorine and water solution until all the ink is washed off. The second method being the most secure.
Don't let any piece of personal or business data lying in your trash. Fraudsters will happily go through your trashcan just to steal your data. Make them regret it.
Invest in an Antivirus Software
Keyloggers can read every keystroke you make on your keyboard. The way to make sure they don't come in the first place is to have a powerful antivirus software such as McAfees, Norton and Kaspersky etc.
An antivirus will also protect you from untrustworthy websites, download and fake login pages. That's why there's no such thing as an expensive antivirus software. There's only safe or sorry. .
Track Your Smartphone
Your phone isn't a phone anymore. It's your email, your gallery, your recordings, documents and personal notes. It's got everything a fraudster needs to steal your identity and wealth.
Not only are you in danger when your smartphone is stolen but your contacts as well. The thief can call your contacts and get all their information.
Whether you've got an android phone or an iPhone you need to download a tracking app to find your phone as soon as it's lost or stolen. Here are more great .
Don't Access Any Accounts on Public Wi-Fi
Public Wi-Fi is easy to hack. In fact, opening your email and bank accounts on public Wi-Fi is like standing in front of a crowd of people and showing everyone your username and password... well for hackers at least.
That's why you must limit your usage of public Wi-Fi and only use it for stuff like games, chatting and other things that don't require you to log into an account. If you really need to access your personal accounts on public Wi-Fi then make sure you set up a Virtual Private Network (VPN) which makes it harder for hackers to steal your information.
It's easy to set up a VPN. Here's a users.

Netatmo Welcome review: Support for door/window sensors is great, but this camera's facial-recognition feature still falls short

Added: 18.08.2016 21:52 | 27 views | 0 comments

Most Wi-Fi security cameras are designed to look for people who aren’t supposed to be in your home. The Netatmo Welcome is made to look for the people who are. The smart appliance manufacturer built this $199 camera around facial recognition and a personalized notification system that seeks not only to reassure you of your loved ones’ safety, but to improve its ability to distinguish between real security incidents and false alarms.
In the real world, however, the Netatmo struggles to get to know your family, and it’s missing many of the features that other cameras in its price range deliver. One new feature that sets it apart is support for proprietary door/window sensors called Netatmo Tags. The company also a Dropbox-based cloud recording feature, so this review has been updated to include an evaluation of those features.
