Are Pres. Candidates Paying Enough Attention to Cybersecurity? Americans say No!

Are Pres. Candidates Paying Enough Attention to Cybersecurity? Americans say No!

On Monday, presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will hold the first debate of the general election campaign. A new LifeLock survey shows most Americans—58 percent—feel the candidates aren’t paying enough attention to cybersecurity.

The survey comes as hacked emails from the personal accounts of public officials—most recently former Secretary of State Colin Powell—continue to draw headlines. It also follows Yahoo’s confirmation yesterday of a massive data breach at the internet company—a breach the company blames on a “state-sponsored actor.”

A Yahoo data breach, now confirmed by the internet company, may have exposed data from at least 500 million user accounts. Business Insider reports it could be the biggest data breach of all time. 

Family Cyber Safety

Family Cyber Safety

Here’s an important rule to consider when it comes to technology and family cyber safety: Don’t hold your kids to a higher standard than you’re willing to apply to yourself. If they can’t have screens during dinner, neither can you. If they can’t check Facebook while visiting relatives, set the example for them instead of being the exception. Come up with the rules—and stick to them—as a family, so that everyone is on the same page.

Your Family’s Internet Safety

One of the long-standing pieces of advice for parents who strive to keep their kids safe from online dangers was to keep the computer in the family room. That way, any intentional or accidental dangerous web behaviors could be spotted immediately. No doubt, you had many conversations with your kids about internet safety before ever letting them anywhere near the internet. They know about oversharing on social media, they know how to stop engaging when cyberbullying crops up, they know about protecting their personal information and their identities…right?
