“The average home Internet user doesn’t always understand their vulnerability and the importance of basic cyber security steps,” said James Anderson with UW-Extension. According to the Department of Homeland Security, cyber security impacts millions of Americans, for example: 600,000 Facebook accounts get hacked daily, 47% of Americans have had at least some personal information exposed to outside parties, and 1 in 3 homes have computers infected with malicious software.
