As we are saying goodbye to July and welcoming August, we wanted to update you on some of the recent cybersecurity news that occurred in the past weeks.
Mac users who rely on the Zoom conference application for group meetings had quite a scare, as a vulnerability glitch within the app allowed unauthorized access to their computer video cameras. In other news, Sprint recently confirmed that a data breach took place via Samsung's website, allowing hackers to access their customers' sensitive information. In addition, this month's Cybersecurity News Report features a post on how cybercriminals are creating forged websites in order to commit domain fraud and direct user traffic towards their illegitimate sites.
September is only a month away, and we've included links to a couple of awesome events you'll want to add to your calendar! LA Cyber Lab is having their annual Security Summit starting September 17th! This two day event features several industry experts who will present on topics such as emerging tech, virtual reality, threat intelligence, and more.
