Cyber Security Hygiene

In my TEDx Greenville talk, Cyber Crime isn’t about computer science, it’s about behavioral science, I outlined three beliefs we all share.  While addressing the third belief “There’s nothing I can do to stop them” I spoke about the similarities of cyber infection and biological infection.  The major take away from this connection was that practicing good cyber hygiene is almost as simple as practicing personal hygiene.

You need:

  1. Soap and Water

  2. Surgical Mask, Gloves, and Scrubs

  3. A plan that makes sure you get the results you are looking for.

I created this infographic in order to help walk through what I’m talking about and added a 4th step, work with a professional.
