We all hear about being hacked, and constantly get advice about preventing hackers from getting our information. “Don’t open e-mails from people you don’t know,” we’re told, and “Change your passwords often,” as well as, “Don’t use the same passwords for everything,” and so on. And while that kind of advice is certainly useful, it goes beyond that. The bottom line is: How easy is it to get hacked?
As you’ll see (or learn) from the infographic below, it is a lot easier to get hacked than most of us probably realize. The infographic is tied in to the movie Paranoia. In case you are unaware (it’s OK, I was, too…), here’s a summary of the movie:
In this high-stakes thriller, Adam Cassidy (Liam Hemsworth) is a regular guy trying to get ahead in his entry-level job at Wyatt Corporation. But after one costly mistake, Adam’s ruthless CEO, Nicholas Wyatt (Gary Oldman), forces him to spy on corporate rival, Jock Goddard (Harrison Ford), Wyatt’s old mentor. Adam soon finds himself occupying the corner office and living the life of his dreams. However, behind the scenes, he is simply a pawn in Wyatt’s corporate game and realizes he must ultimately find a way out from under his boss who will stop at nothing, even murder, to win a multi-billion dollar advantage.
Without further adieu, here is the infographic that will tell you how easy is it to get hacked. (Let me apologize, in advance, for freaking you out.)
