A Decade of Data Breach – Your Personal & Professional Identity At …Your Personal Data
Has A Bad Habit
Of Roaming Off…
Each year, the amount of data that is stored online about our lives grows…
And so too does the damage done by increasingly savvy hacking tools leading to a breach of the safety measures a site may be using.
You likely still remember the trouble that hit the Department of Veterans Affairs, or T.J. Maxx Credit Cards, or the Sony Playstation network!

Many internet marketers fail to treat their business as a business and skimp on important things like this (often while throwing money weekly at new “shiny objects” that they will either never use or will be out of date before they even get started.

Take care of your business and do the smart things to avoid losing it all to the bad guys!
PS: Don’t put this off like you might be tempted to do. That’s exactly what leads to you being unprotected when it happens. Do it this week and you can thank me later :)
