So, I thought I would compile my fav articles on this very subject that I discovered this week. Let’s take a look:

  1. Want Safer Passwords? Don’t Change Them So Often, by Brian Barrett

2. A typo partially stopped hackers from stealing $1 billion from a Bangladesh bank, by Loren Grush

3. Pay up or else: Ransomware is the hot hacking trend of 2016, by 

I think this one speaks or itself. Definitely a serious issue that is not going away.

Well, these were my top picks for the week. What would you add?
