Hacking is a reality further spurred on by increased global unemployment. And while sensitive information is behind lock and key, what happens when there’s a breach?
I was sitting at a cafe eating nachos and mini-burgers with a mate of mine this week, while being played by a simple card trick, one that is used on hackers.
They’re called honeypots, like a deck switch in this case. The two look the same but the contents are very different. They’re being used like decoys on hackers to raise an alarm if there’s a breach. A bit like when the badger gets caught with his nose in the jar.
And while it’s no fail-safe system, business is under immense pressure to safeguard your information and this is part of the solution.
