Just like any other public environment, the internet requires awareness and caution. Just as you use locks to keep criminals out of your home, you also need safeguards to secure your computer, WiFi and other devices. Many of the crimes that occur in real life are now done - or at least facilitated - through the Internet. Theft, abuse and more can be and are being done online. Many scammers target older Americans via emails and websites for charitable donations, dating services, auctions, health care, and prescription medications.In-addition, cyber-attacks for companies that serve older adults are on the rise. Small businesses are especially vulnerable to cyber threats since they have very little to none training and experience in cybersecurity and, most of the time, use an independent information technology person/company with credible expertise in cybersecurity. This is well known to cyber-criminals and hackers since elderly information can be used for retirement portfolios, acquiring passports, acquiring driver licenses, and so much more.
