What I learned after I was Hacked.

I wanted to believe that I would never become a victim of cybercrime, but I was hacked and my information was stolen. The week before I was hacked, my local news channel ran a story about a massive Cybersecurity breach at WannaCry, which affected over 300,000 computers in 150 countries. These hackers stole valuable information from unsuspecting customers and employees. Cybercrime is increasing and advancing causing billions of dollars in loss and damages and it is projected to become more than $6 trillion in 2021 (YahooNews).

Even the most powerful in our society are not immune to these cyber attacks. In the last American election, Hillary Clinton’s emails were hacked by cybercriminals and leaked through the media. Sensitive information was compromised and this incident became the most infamous cybercrime in history. In early 2017, an executive order was signed by President Donald Trump to improve cybersecurity for inevitable and upcoming cyber attacks impacting the country’ infrastructure and federal networks. This executive order did not help me from being hacked, but there are measures that can be taken in order to prevent it.

After I was hacked, I researched the best programs for cybersecurity and none stood out like Rubica. Rubica is a privately held cybersecurity network that aims to protect you, your family, and your business. Their program allows you to search the internet incognito through a private network, which prevents companies from collecting and selling data that you accumulate through search engines, browsers, and apps. The program is accessible and convenient because you can download it onto your phone, computer, tablet, etc. The company also allows customers access to 24/7 cybersecurity experts who are ready to help in any situation.
