We have a love of learning here at RedCloud! Late last month, our team gathered virtually for a session solely focused on learning more about one of the hottest (and most critical) topics in tech - Cybersecurity. No stranger to our team, RedCloud Alumni, Terry McCorkle, Founder and CEO of PhishCloud Inc. joined us to share his wisdom.
With growing concerns about cyberattacks, it’s important to sharpen our skills when it comes to recognizing a potential threat. RedCloud Account Manager, Jenny LeBaron enjoyed the event and said, "It is not very often that we get to learn from a former RedCloud Alum about something (like cybersecurity) that relates to each and everyone of us -- It was a great experience!"
It was great to see RedCloud Alumni making such an impact in their field and then coming back to share their insight on industry best practices. Thank you, Terry, for presenting a complex issue to us in such a user-centric way!"
I had no idea what a big 'business' hacking was: i.e. 50m bad emails get through daily, 75x more phishing sites than malware, 97% of people are unable to spot phishing. A couple takeaways: setup multi factor authentication whenever possible, secure your home network. Terry mentioned having two networks in his personal household - one for business, and one used by family for gaming sites, general use, etc.
