Odds are you have been infected. According to the FBI ransom ware cost Americans $1.8 billion dollars in 2016, up dramatically from 2015.  Data breaches cost more than $4 million each, with 91% of all attacks happening via phishing emails. That means that individuals like you are the weak leak in the cyber security chain.

The month of October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month and to help drive that home Cal OES just published a special episode of the All Hazards podcast; you can find it here and subscribe to bi-weekly releases at iTunes.

Are your computer and smart phone cameras watching you right now?
