Dailies for December of 2017

The New Year is nigh; if you are looking for a resolution, why not take a little time and familiarize yourself with computer security? It could end up saving you lots of time, money, and aggravation in the long run. In particular we would recommend that you familiarize yourself with two-factor authentication (2FA) and start using authentication apps (like Duo, Authy, or Google Authenticator) and/or FIDO U2F devices to help protect both your money and your identity online. Authentication apps are typically free and U2F devices can be less than $20.00, so it is not expensive to protect your accounts.

Related to the whole Net Neutrality battle is the fact that some organization flooded the FCC with fake comments written with stolen identities. Did someone use yours? You can check online.

December 14, 2017

As expected, the FCC ignored popular outcry and killed Net Neutrality today giving a boon to big business while leaving regular folks exposed. Massachusetts is one of many states (seventeen as of this writing, but there will likely be more) already challenging the repeal with a lawsuit.

Tomorrow is the day the FCC is planning on voting on Net Neutrality. There is still a little time to make your voice heard. If you don't know what Net Neutrality is, we have a string of past articles discussing it.

We have mentioned it before, but in spite of public outcry, the FCC is still looking to kill Net Neutrality. If you use the Internet this will impact you. It is worth your while to learn a little more about what many people are referring to as the Battle for the Net.
