It’s not something that I know, I don’t know,” she said.
But I’m not entirely alone.
A study published by The Conversation last month found that about half of internet users had lost their internet access after being hacked, with a third reporting their connection was broken by a virus or malware.
The survey also found that internet service providers were becoming more aware of security threats, with some now taking measures to block access to websites that they consider harmful.
And while the majority of internet service provider (ISP) customers don’t consider themselves to be vulnerable to the latest threats, the industry is beginning to recognize the risks, with ISPs including AT&T, Verizon, and Comcast, among others, now testing how to protect their networks against cyberattacks.
For now, however, the best way to protect yourself against a potential attack is to remain connected.
It doesn’t matter if you’re offline, connected, or in another state of alert.
If you have the right password, you can still use your device, including online gaming, and access your files, even if you don’t have access to the internet.
But that doesn’t mean you should ignore the warning signs that a cyberattack could be on the horizon.
The best defense against a cyber attack is good security.
It may take time, but with a little effort and good preparation, you’ll be more protected than ever.
