Discover How Cyber Security Can Protect Your Network during COVID-19

The Importance of Cyber Security

Cyber security has become one of the most critical aspects of data security. Data security is especially relevant today because this school year has gotten off to a strange start. From having to make changes to classrooms regarding COVID-19, and most classes starting out virtually. What if I told you there’s still more that could go wrong…well now that sounds terrifying.

Schools are currently being targeted and hit by ransomware. Cyber security has become a very important aspect of technology in today’s world.The last thing that a school district needs is to be worried about the staff and student’s data security. This is happening because school districts are exposed and do not have time to focus on cyber security plans. After all, they are currently concentrating on many other things to protect their students and return to the classroom safely.

TikTok and Its Hidden Vulnerabilities

Many people are using TikTok these days. If you haven’t heard of TikTok, you are part of the rare crowd. TikTok is video-sharing social networking, basically the new Vine. There are over 1.5 billion uses globe-wide within a two and a half year span.  TikTok has spread to Facebook, Twitter, and even Instagram.

How can hackers use TikTok to hurt users:

  • Manipulating content in Tik Tok user accounts
  • Erasing videos
  • Uploading unapproved videos
  • Changing private videos to be publicly available
  • Expose private information like personal email addresses

HOW?

How are they doing this?? By sending malicious links with spoofed messages, they are gaining access to TikTok profiles. Social engineering is also a way that hackers are getting access to TikTok user profiles.

Since TikTok has been looking to grow quickly, they have not given security vulnerabilities much needed attention. However, back in 2019, TikTok was fined 5.7 million dollars for collecting personal information illegally from minors. *Yikes* Soldiers are not permitted to make TikTok’s while in uniform. The Navy and the Army have banned the application on December 30th. 

It has many vulnerabilities, and it has the potential to be very risky for minors. Parents, please monitor your children’s TikTok. Very important to follow your children’s social media and make sure they are not being taken advantage of. Thanks for reading!
