    Unfortunatley I beleive we need to educate the young coming through school in their IT class that security is the most important are in technology. The high levels of hackers out their means we all need to stay well on top of our security game. Always update your software when prompted to, always have an anti virus software running on your PC’s and laptops. Never fall behind the security times.
