Today, not paying attention to your online security is like leaving your car windows open with your purse on the seat.
FRANKFORT, Ill. (PRWEB) October 18, 2018
Recently, the Frankfort, Illinois-based RWK IT Services, a company offering informational technology solutions to small and medium sized enterprise markets, educated the public about protecting their online files during Annual Shred Event hosted by Town Center Bank in Frankfort .
Held at Aurelio’s Pizza in Frankfort, Jeff Reiter, RWK’s owner, presented a free cybersecurity seminar filled with much information and tips. Reiter’s 30 years in cybersecurity have led him to conclude that this period is the most vulnerable time in hacking history.
“Today, not paying attention to your online security is like leaving your car windows open with your purse on the seat,” he said.
The company is very aware of the growing threats of the Dark Web—the part of the World Wide Web that is only accessible by means of special software, allowing users and website operators to remain anonymous or untraceable. Most people don’t know that the Dark Web is 550 times larger than the surface/searchable web and that half of it is criminal. According to Federation of American Scientists, 99 percent of businesses aren’t protected, and 85 percent of businesses with less than 1,000 employees have already been hacked and don’t realize it. To help its clients, the company developed its Dark Web ID, a 24-hour monitoring system that can detect threats to homes and businesses before they infiltrate. RWK does not charge to run a check that determines if a system—or even an email—has been hacked.
“Cybersecurity is a really important topic that any individual, business, or municipality has to take seriously. I am happy to give my time,” Reiter said.
The momentum of this event leads straight into National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM) in October. It was created as a collaborative effort between government and industry to ensure every American has the resources they need to stay safer and more secure online.
