With more people working from home due to the novel 'COVID-19' coronavirus pandemic, the internet has become more crowded than ever.
Virtual Private Network, or VPN, can be useful for many reasons. One of which, is when you want to connect to the internet using public Wi-Fi, especially hotspots without passwords.
But how about when you're connecting to the internet inside your comfort zone, let's say, your home and inside your comfortable bedroom?
To answer this, we need to first break how things work when you access the internet.
Big companies are targets of hackers because of the sheer number of information they hold.
But it also makes sense that hackers also love smaller-sized businesses, just because they are usually easy targets. In short no business on the web is safe.
Cybersecurity solutions usually involve: Automated Security, or Managed Security.
For the first, automated security uses automation and/or Artificial Intelligence (AI) to automatically handle the routines and tasks that are essential to cybersecurity.
AI systems are only as good as the data we put into them.
Since humans are already biased and, in cases, also racists, we somehow inherit those traits to the AI systems we create.
AI and machine learning technology with deep learning have many advantages. But again, because the data is already flawed, the end product will always be flawed.
People cannot see everything in front of them. That is also true with the "invisible malware".
With the advancements in technology powering anti-malware and Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR), computer protections are becoming generally better. This makes sophisticated attacks able to be predicted and prevented.
But this is where malware developers are moving lower on the stack.
While people know that newer devices are packed with better technology, more features and functionalities, lesser know that their old items should be properly taken care of before being sold or disposed.
During its usage, your mobile phone will store personal and sensitive information such as contacts; messages, documents web browsing and GPS locations; photos, music and videos; and even other sensitive and personal information that includes login ID and passwords to emails, websites and social media accounts.
Google is a giant company. Thriving on the web, it's no stranger to employees working in remote places.
The company has nearly 100,000 workers spread over 150 cities in more than 50 countries on five continents. In its quest to create the perfect remote team, researchers at the company spent two years studying more than 5,000 employees for solutions.
Here, the researchers measured well-being, performance, and connectedness among other things, and came up with recommendations on how to keep things consistent, even if employees are spread out across the globe.
There was a time when cameras on mobile devices were less than 1 itty-bitty megapixel. But fast-forward, people have smartphones with multiple cameras, each with huge megapixels.
A megapixel consists of one million pixels (picture element), The unit has been used for image sensing capacity in digital cameras. In general, the more megapixels a digital camera has, the better the resolution when printing an image in a given size.
With more and more megapixels packed into a camera sensor, what more can companies do to further improve the quality of pictures?
