1. Top Tips To Avoid Being A Cyber Victim with Scott Schober Dr. Ron Kaiser 41:26

Although fraudulent activity online and cybercriminals were born almost at the same time the internet did, cybersecurity has never been resolved and has even gotten worse. Cybercriminals rely on the sense of urgency all of us live; we are distracted, constantly in a hurry, and don’t have time to double-check phone calls, emails, or the multiple messages that pop up on our screens.

Today, we have a cybersecurity expert to shed some light on the dangers we are all susceptible to online, Scott Schober. Scott is the CEO of Berkeley Varitronics Systems; he is a cybersecurity speaker featured on Bloomberg TV, CBS, Fox Business News, Good Morning America, CNN, to name a few, a podcast host, and author of three books on cybersecurity.

We have an extremely educational conversation about how to be safe online, prevent from falling into online scams, protect our data, and detect scammers and cybercriminals. Scott explained the methods hackers use to breach our social media accounts and how that information is used by cybercriminals to steal from us or even use our names to scam other people. We also delve into the importance of becoming friends with two-step authentication processes, passwords managers, and taking a few seconds to think and investigate before clicking or revealing personal information to a stranger on the phone.
