Robert Siciliano

You’d think that it would be as easy as pie to avoid getting reeled in by a phishing scam. After all, all you need to do is avoid clicking on a link inside an email or text message. How easy is that?

How Employers or Parents Spy

Posted by Robert Siciliano in cyberbullying , Cyber Security , cyber fraud , cyber crime

Robert Siciliano

Disgruntled employees act out in lots of ways. A guy I knew who hated his boss “played” on his work computer all day. The computer was strictly for constructing company graphics. But he installed all kinds of games and wasted lots of time. His boss never knew he blew off half the day.

Posted by Robert Siciliano in privacy and security , online privacy , data privacy , consumer privacy

Robert Siciliano

It’s hard to believe that, according to a recent poll from the Pew Research Center, most Americans aren’t too upset that the government can track their e-mails and phone calls.
