When it comes to cyber threats, the future is here—malware attacking new devices in new ways and jumping on popular technology trends to do it. Phones aren’t safe, computers aren’t safe, and in some instances, it doesn’t even take clicking on the wrong link or attachment to become a victim of an attack. Keeping up with these threats is becoming a full-time job, and it’s imperative that we do whatever it takes to keep our data safe.

With each week looking slightly different from the last, what tech headlines did you miss?

Malware is taking advantage of existing vulnerabilities and if we don’t start upping our security game, our data will be increasingly at risk. What threats are headed your way? Last week’s biggest tech headlines say it all.

The Stranger in the Photograph

The Stranger in the Photograph

Many years ago, I purchased a black paper album at an estate sale. It contained images of a beautiful woman—her loose high school picture fell to the floor the first time I opened the album’s cover. Her smile grabbed me and her warm expression seemed to invite me into her life.

The images from the mid-20th century told the story of a good life that at first made me happy, like I was a guest in a comfortable home. However, the reality of the moment soon hit. To me, this woman was really just a nameless face in print; she was left for a stranger to find in a box in a basement. She now seemed abandoned. Lost. Forgotten.
