In our celebrity-obsessed culture, it’s easy to forget that the same individuals we scorn or idolize are real people with their own set of cares and concerns. Though it may be hard to feel sympathy for those who seem to have it all, especially the self-aggrandizing attention seekers, it’s hard to dismiss the latest reported (potential) breach of privacy.
On March 11, 2013, hackers released personal financial information about a dozen celebrities. Besides famous entertainers such as Jay-Z, Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian, the hackers also published information for high-ranking U.S. government officials including First Lady Michelle Obama and Vice President Joe Biden.
Because we’re not celebrities, it’s hard to imagine anyone wanting private information about our lives. But hackers are well aware of the financial benefits that can be reaped from your everyday security lapses.
If your company collects data about its customers and/or employees, you must protect your data. Recognizing the growing threat of cyber theft, Sogolytics offers SSL Encryption to secure your survey sessions. These security protocols make survey responses indecipherable, while protecting sensitive participant data.
While no security system is 100% effective, Sogolytics provides you with the security you need to thwart the vast majority of phishers. With SSL Encryption, “ . . . it would take significantly longer than the age of the universe to crack a 128-bit key.”
So, we have all the time in the world. Do you?
