Kevin Spease gives talk on Cybercrime at a recent Elk Grove Chamber of Commerce luncheon. As the Elk Grove Planning Commissioner and ISSE Principal consultant, Spease explained how the technological advancements have provided more inroads for cybercriminals to cause havoc in peoples personal and professional lives.
“We know that cybercriminals will do what they always do, which is to find more opportunity,” Spease noted. “Most attacks are indiscriminate. They don’t care who you are. They just want what you have.”
The best defense is a properly updated antivirus software program, but also an awareness of the tactics cyberthieves use to get access to private computers.
