Upon returning from my recent vacation, I discovered that Flipboard had identified several interesting articles for me while I was away.

After reading Matt Honan’s “How Apple and Amazon Security Flaws Led to My Epic Hacking” from wired.com, I made another important discovery – it was high time for me to look into securing my wife’s AOL account via her iPhone similar to what Richard discussed in his recent blog.

No words are more motivating than those of someone who has been recently hacked.

“Had I used two-factor authentication for my Google account, it’s possible that none of this would have happened… Had I been regularly backing up the data on my MacBook, I wouldn’t have had to worry about losing more than a year’s worth of photos, covering the entire lifespan of my daughter, or documents and e-mails that I had stored in no other location. Those security lapses are my fault, and I deeply, deeply regret them.”

How recently have you backed up and updated your security practices?
