In our August SIMformation, we look at how Google's Chrome Internet browser is far outpacing Microsoft's Edge and Internet Explorer and Mosaic's Firefox in total users. Is this good or bad? Plus, we look at five areas the IT security experts say are the targets for the "bad guys" and why cybersecurity must be of utmost importance to any individual and company. If "123456" is your password, you better thing about changing it, as that is #1 on the list of 50 most exposed passwords. We have the full list of 50 just so you can check to see if you made the list or if your password is more secure than these. As an alternative to passwords alone, we look at a USB security key as an additional two-factor authentication check and how that has proven to benefit companies. And, as the march to the Cloud continues, we look at security issues for hosted software in the Cloud and what you can do to protect your data in these situations.
