Episode 106: Something Smells Phishy

By Smart City Diaries

You think your secrets are safe online? Think again.

Every single day, over 30,000 websites are hacked. In 2020, 36 billion records were stolen from the worlds largest and most secure tech companies. And 95% of these breaches came down to human error. Your phone, your doorbell, your refrigerator, all can be hacked. The statistics sound overwhelming, but no need to renounce all your connected possessions quite yet.

On this episode of Smart City Diaries, hosts Anna and Deborah, along with security expert Alex Acosta, break down the simple tools to help you safeguard your information at home and at work. And talking about work, when you do have a problem, how can you upgrade your interactions with the IT Department?

On top of that, Anna And Deborah talk kitten cafes, “women”-run NFT startups, and Sin City. So take a seat and enjoy the show!
