The more people who know what you’re up to online, the more people will be interested in your work.
That’s the advice of a security researcher who has tracked online criminals for years.
“We know that the more you have to put in passwords, the fewer people you can count on to protect you,” said Paul Giamatti, who heads the cybersecurity research firm Securify.
“The less people you have online, there’s less incentive to put up a strong password.”
He explained that the less people have to know what is going on, the less likely they are to engage in cybercrime.
Giametti’s research shows that the average age of the average person is over 45.
“People have a tendency to get distracted when they have to deal with this many different things at once,” Giametsi said.
“It’s very important to have a strong system of security that allows for easy management of those systems.”
Giametti said that the number of people who use the same password across all their online accounts is more than double what it was in the 1990s.
“There are more people with passwords than ever before, and they are all using the same passwords across all the accounts they have,” he said.
He said the majority of these passwords are easy to remember, easy to guess, and easy to forget.
“They are all stored on a computer somewhere,” he explained.
“A lot of the time, you can guess the password for a password.”
“You are using a password for every single website you visit.”
And you aren’t alone.
Giacetti said that if you want to avoid being the victim of cybercrime, you should also think about which passwords you want people to be able to guess at.
“You should think about what are your goals, and then you need to be very careful about what you use,” he added.
“So I think the best thing to do is think about the people who are using the password, and what they are going to be going to do with it.”
Giacettis research also showed that people are more likely to get hacked by the most sophisticated hackers, so it’s important to think about that too.
“This is a big deal,” Giacetsi noted.
“Most people who go out on a date, they are having sex, and that’s fine, but they are getting hacked.
And this is one of the things that we have to be thinking about, is how do you make it so that people don’t get hacked?”
