WSB-TV Channel 2 Interview with Mitzi Hill on Cyber Ransom Attacks and Hackers Targeting Home Computers
On Monday, February 9, 2015, WSB-TV Channel 2 interviewed Mitzi Hill as a part of an investigation into the growing trend of data security and online privacy. The video segment includes interviews with individuals in Georgia who have become victims of cyber attacks, an increasing issue for not only individual computer owners, but small, medium and large businesses in the state. In the interview, Ms. Hill says that every computer owner should have a plan in place in case of a breach. Unfortunately today, it’s not a matter of when you get breached, it’s when. She also advises that however big or small an organization is, data security is everyone’s responsibility. Ms. Hill was also interviewed for a segment on the growing issue of businesses becoming victims to ransomware, a malware that infects a computer and locks access to the computer’s files until the owner pays a ransom.
