Technology (hardware and software) has grown so fast and it's amazing! Even more amazing is the amount of data we create every day, nearly 2.5 quintillion bytes of data.
Imagine if it got into the wrong hands? Scary, right?
Unfortunately, it already is. Criminals monitor us by the information we share or which is readily available online and bank on our lack of knowledge on technology and many times on our vanity, greed and need for attention.
In 2022, cybercrimes cost companies, governments and people just like us nearly $8.3 Trillion dollars and in 2023 this number is expected to reach a staggering $11 Trillion dollars!
To address this increase in cybercrimes, it's critical to have the knowledge to protect ourselves and our loved ones with better online hygiene. However, with advent of technology it's increasingly difficult to know how to put some of these safeguards in place.
That's why we created Technology and Online Exploitability Safeguards or TOES!
TOES is a set of how to guides created by technology experts to make it easier for everyone, especially those who are note technology savvy to setup the safeguards so you can keep yourself and your loved ones safe.
Criminals need our information to get to us in any meaningful way, so if it's our information they need... then let's make it a little bit harder to get to it, shall we?
