Last Wednesday evening, I gave a talk at the WizeNight gathering in Tel Aviv, Israel. Wize is a new nonprofit organization that organizes WizeNights, free lectures for people who want to learn interesting and important things, over a beer. This time, the event took place at the Bialik Bar.

My talk covered topics such as the hype about recent computer security attacks, the lack of social networking security for our virtual presence, database information security, credit card readers and zero-day attacks.

Here are 5 facts I shared with the crowd that most didn’t know:

1. Identity theft is a bigger crime than drugs in the U.S.
2. Social networking is highly unsecured.
3. Many of the largest companies worldwide have been exposed to SQL injection attacks.
4. Internet commerce is more secure than the average mall store.
5. Chances are that your home computers have already been compromised by some sort of malware.

It surprised me to see how many people showed up…and stayed until the end to hear about real-life examples of cyber-attacks!

    Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins
    to assist with SEO? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not
    seeing very good gains. If you know of any please share.
