How To Protect Yourself from Hackers at Work
Now more than ever, our work lives happen online. And that means more of our work records, including information we’d prefer not to get into the wrong hands, are stored in our computers and in the cloud… ripe for nefarious types to steal.
So here to offer some digital-security ideas that your company might not have trained you to consider, is Stephanie Carruthers. She’s what’s called a “white hat” hacker, with the very James Bond-y handle “Snow.” Stephanie joins Liz and Rico today for a quick-fire round of the SFW classic, “5 in 5,” with 5 cybersecurity strengthening questions in 5-ish minutes
Then in this week’s Lingo Bingo, we’ll go through a list of phrases submitted by you, Dear Listeners, including an innuendo that should probably be retired from the office. Then listener Elyse returns to the show with a love story that’s made for some complicated work logistics.
And later, we’ll hear from listener Jill who needs some tips on how to pare down her resume. If you need even more ideas, feel free to go back to our July 8 episode with master-resume writer Emily Kapit.
