In our April SIMformation we look at those pesky "Rachel from Card Services" calls and the rest of that ilk, and what you can do to help mitigate these annoying robocalls.  We also take a look at Facebook privacy issues and what your phone might be sharing to the data sweeps.  Ransomware continues to be in the news after the City of Atlanta was hit and city services shut down while their system was frozen until the ransom was paid.  As our inter-connected world grows, we discuss the potential for attacks on the Internet of Things (IoT) and how Georgia Tech has constructed a "honey pot" to help catch the bad guys before they can breach IoT devices.  And, we take a more in-depth look at Cryptojacking, wherein malware is loaded onto your devices to make them mine cryptocurrencies like Bitcoins.  This saps your computer's system, slows down your performance, and makes you an unwitting participant in someone else's business.  We discuss steps to take to detect and protect your network against Cryptojacking

Mark Zuckerberg to testify before Congress

               

 On Wednesday April 11, Zuck himself will appear on live television and face what many expect to be a “grilling” from members of Congress, upset with the way his company has handled consumer’s private data over the years. As the day approaches, more and more information continues to surface that exposes deep mishandling and collecting of data. Zuckerberg has been on the defense, seeking to explain in safe terms the business model of Facebook, and how he plans to fix the problem, possibly with the help of federal regulation. He’ll also face questions about the platform’s influence on society, and how they plan to halt the spread of misinformation and “fake news”.  Zuck is no stranger to Capitol Hill, but in light of the recent Cambridge Analytica scandal, we can expect the mood to be a little different on this visit.
