Digital and reputation security risks are growing daily; and are something that should be taken very seriously. The risks faced by all of us are actually much more prescient than many realize.

People of all stripes are at an increased risk of being targeted by hackers.
IoT devices vulnerable to all kinds of cyberattack. This is because there was a rush to ship them and make them available for consumers. They are generally inexpensive and mass produced.
