Be Safe in Cyberspace

You never know when you might be the target of a cyber attack, and trust me, hackers are out there. Inspired by the many credit-card TV commercials that portray hackers traveling through cyberspace and the home PC just to get to your personal information, We've been increasing security levels on email accounts and social networks.

An innocent-looking email from an unknown sender or an otherwise friendly website you've come upon can put you a click away from having your identity stolen.

Tell us if you have been the target of online hackers. Tell us what safety steps you've implemented to protect yourself, your plant and your systems.

Read the article "Be Safe in Cyber Space" to be better prepared to fight off cyber thieves or cyber viruses that can corrupt your computer files.

The pull down menus of history, favorites and C drive are a small step away. I have disabled Internet Explorer and moved to Fire Fox. This browser feels the same on a windows or Linux and by virtue of its lack of "User experience" is not completely linked to the operating system and all of its programs and data. </p> <p> The internet presence could be operated under a Linux kernel within a Windows system using a well guarded FTP connection between them. </p> <p> Wayne Baldridge </p>
