Albert Einstein once said, “If you can't explain it to a six-year old, you don't understand it yourself.”
Sometimes, technology makes us all feel like six-year olds, particularly when we see headline after headline announcing a terrible new computer hack, which threatens to do something awful to each of our computers. But not all hacks are the same. Most hacks target some computer users, and not others. Some are indeed severe, some are just annoying at worst.
The fact is, when a cyber hack occurs, you just want to know two things: does it effect you, and exactly what should you do about it? That’s it. No drama, no superlatives, and no scary headlines. Just advice about how to keep your connected computers safe and running normally without falling in to a hacker trap, or losing your property.
That’s what this program is all about. DIY Cyber Guy airs live Thursdays at 3 PM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Business. (Not intended for anyone under age six.)
