We are introducing hundreds of thousands of DIDs within our extended inventory! Haven’t been able to purchase that number you’ve been looking for? Don’t be sad; we’re now able to open the door that leads to our “back room” where those DIDs you’ve been looking for may be hiding! Through our fully redundant BackOffice platform, you will now be able to choose DIDs from areas you may not have had access to before.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year…before the gift wrapping, ornament hanging, and tree trimming. Once again, we’re approaching Cyber Monday. This day is the holy grail of the holiday shopping season, and it’s also a holiday of sorts for cyber criminals. Widely touted as “hacker heaven,” Cyber Monday can pose some serious threats to consumers and businesses alike if necessary precautions aren’t taken.
It’s no surprise that the act of hacking has grown increasingly sophisticated over the years. Today, there are multiple advanced forms of hacking (i.e. jailbreaking, chip and pin hacks, IoT botnets) but perhaps one of today’s most innovative forms of hacking is extortion hacking, or cyber extortion.
At the consumer-level, jailbreaking— the process of gaining root access to a mobile device’s core operating system—offers some unique benefits. For example, users can strip their device of its original manufacturer restrictions in order to install third-party applications that may be unavailable in the app store.
Today, cyber security has become a fact of life. It’s no longer an ambiguous concept or a trendy buzzword but rather a very real (and exponentially costly) threat to organizations across the board. In fact, according to IBM’s 10th annual “Cost of Data Breach Study,” the average total cost of a data breach reached an all-time high of $3.8 million in 2015—a 23 percent increase from 2013.
In today’s advanced, digital world, cyber security has become a top-of-mind concern for business leaders across virtually every industry. It’s understandable why; due to the proliferation of the Internet of Things (IoT)—industry pundits predict that the IoT will consist of over 34 billion connected devices by 2020—the number of cyber security threats are greater than ever, and they’re only growing more innovative in nature.
