Are You Concerned Enough About Password Security?


Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedInEmail this to someonePin on PinterestShare on Google+

Cybersecurity remains a top-of-mind issue for businesses today, both large and small. In 2017, breaches — like that of the Equifax breach, which put the data of 145.5 million Americans at risk — showed corporations just how damaging a cyber-attack can be. But hacks don’t just affect big-name businesses; according Verizon Data Breach Report, 61 percent of breach victims in 2017 were businesses with under 1,000 employees.

The takeaway? No matter what your company size, you have to be on top of their cybersecurity game.

This is especially true given the role that human error plays in security breaches. As a recent password security study conducted by Varonis demonstrated, the majority of Americans aren’t vigilant about changing their passwords, and often remember them using tactics that aren’t recommended by cybersecurity professionals. If you don’t have strict cybersecurity policies in place, something as simple as a negligent employee could put your company at risk.

To learn more about the password habits — and consider whether it’s time to implement a password standard when you work both with your business and your client — check out the infographic from Varonis, below.

Advancements in technology have certainly made our lives so much simpler. But the devices we have today had to start somewhere and when we compare our current model to older ones the differences are enormous.

For example consider your USB stick and how much data one can hold. It’s hard to imagine having to use multiple floppy disks to achieve the same thing. Take a look at these other comparisons made in Futurism’s infographic.

How Does an Ecommerce Company Dominate Others?


Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedInEmail this to someonePin on PinterestShare on Google+

Have you ever wondered how many companies there actually are in the ecommerce world?  Where is the competition in the economy? As you can see from the infographic below, there’s not much left since the giant companies either acquire the smaller ones, or they go out of business.

There are usually thousands of websites offering the same or similar services to each other. This is especially true of the travel niche, for example, with Expedia. So what do these companies do differently than others and why can nobody realistically challenge their market dominance?

Quality Experience

Big ecommerce companies don’t only focus on the high-quality product but also on the buying experience for the consumer. The buying experience includes everything from packaging, marketing, the presentation on the online store, to the post-purchase follow up.

Companies such as Expedia go the extra mile just to be sure their consumers get the right product and have a good experience with their websites. This travel giant, in particular, was also one of the first companies to adopt Bitcoin payments, allowing travelers to book trips in any way conceivable.

The Brand’s Backstory

Everyone loves a good story and this applies to the brand stories too. Customers want to know who they’re buying from. They enjoy when they know how the company started and its business values and goals. This strategy gets the customers at a personal level instead of pushing the product on them.

On the Go and Social

In addition to online shopping at desktop and laptop computers, people have taken it out of the house and on their mobile phones. If we continue using Expedia as an example, they combine the social and mobile aspect of booking trips, hotels and car rentals on its online apps.

The combination of all three factors can make any company powerful. When a company covers all its bases, it makes it hard for someone to enter the game.
