How do you typically start your work day? For most, checking e-mail is an early-morning ritual (sometimes before they even get out of bed). We are fortunate to work in a world of rapid, electronic communication. It helps us get the job done faster. While e-mail may provide us with a quick and easy way to communicate, it also provides cybercriminals with a quick and easy way to target unsuspecting victims.
Remember that story about the three little pigs and the big bad wolf? It had an important message, but as children we were probably just relieved to learn that one of the pigs outsmarted the big bad wolf. As you may recall, the old fable was about three little pigs who were each building a house. The first little pig quickly built a house of straw, while the second little pig built a house of sticks. The third little pig worked hard all day to build a house of bricks. One day, the big bad wolf paid them all a visit. He huffed and puffed and quickly blew the straw and stick houses down. The big bad wolf then found the third little pig’s house. He huffed and he puffed, but he couldn’t blow down the strong house made of brick. Determined to get in, the big bad wolf climbed on the roof and slid down the chimney, but the third little pig had a cauldron of boiling water waiting on the fire and the wolf met his demise. The lesson was simple, but significant. A little hard work and preparation can pay off.
