Network Security Part VI: Cloud Hacking

Hope your Wednesday is going great! This is the last part of our network security series. Hope you’ve enjoyed reading them. If you have, feel free to scroll down and leave me a comment at the bottom of this post.

The last way that we’ll discuss is cloud hacking. There have been several high-profile cases of cloud hacking over the past few years. Even Apple had their iCloud hacked and dozens of celebrities had private photos released on the internet.

If a leading company like Apple isn’t immune to this, nobody is. But what most people don’t realize is that many apps and programs automatically upload their pictures and videos to the cloud without their permission. If you turn off auto-upload, hackers are less likely to gain access to your information.

If you do decide to use cloud storage, make sure that you only use reputable companies and have a backup of your data offline.
