Beware of these 5 Online Cyber Mistakes During the Holidays

Shopping Bag

Lohrman on Cybersecurity & Infrastructure:5 Online Mistakes to Avoid During the Holidays

Editor's Note:  The holiday season is almost here, and many of us will be shopping online hoping to get the best deals possible. This is a time to give, not to be taken.

Review these cyber security tips compiled in an article from govtech.comwritten by Dan Lohrman, the Chief Security Officer & Chief Strategist at Security Mentor Inc. It could save you time, money and aggravation.

 1) Watch Out for Online Shopping Fraud – We all want a deal. Some of us will go to great lengths both online and offline to save a buck. Sadly cyberspace is full of scams and “too good to be true” deals that really are fakes in more ways than one. From fake products to fake prices with hidden fees and exorbitant shipping charges to entire websites that are cloned imitations of more reputable websites, there are many ways to be tricked online. 

 ...Tip: Stick with online merchants (companies) that you trust. While it can be tempting to save an extra 10 percent at some new unknown retailer, be extra careful. Household names like Target, Walmart, Best Buy and Amazon.com offer great deals over the holidays without the extra burden or worry that what will be opened on Christmas Day may not be what looked so pretty in the online picture.  If you do buy from a new or unknown online merchant, do your homework. Make sure that you know the policies for returns, refunds and more. Remember that you are providing credit card and potentially other sensitive information to this company, so follow best practices to keep your sensitive information secure. Read entire article here.

Staying Focused During the Holidays

"What if Christmas doesn't come from a store.What if Christmas...perhaps...means a little bit more!"~Dr. Seuss, How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

The end-of-year  holidays, that magical time of the year… But if you have been out of work and looking for a job for months, the holidays can also be that most hopeless time of the year. There don’t seem to be as many job opportunities, or people aren't available to interview or take calls. 

Must your life go on hold? And then there’s the gifts, the entertaining, the decorating.
You do not have to go down that road. Energize yourself with the spirit of the season -  joy,  gratitude, good friends, and family. 

Here are some things you can do to participate and keep up your momentum into 2017:
  •   Continue your job search. Do not give up. The resume that you submit in December may not get read until January, but it WILL get there. Create you own Personal-Job-Search.
  •  Go to parties and get-togethers. They are great for networking, meeting new people, keeping your spirits up. 
  • Worried about gifts – DIY! People don’t expect lavish gifts and what’s better than something made with love. Do you bake, knit, paint or like photography?
  • Consider having a potluck. Have everyone bring a dish and have your own party! BYOB!
  • Take a stroll downtown or in your neighborhood with friends and family to look at the beautiful lights and/or window displays.
  • Remember to exercise to keep your mind clear and your energy high.
 Make the last weeks of 2016 count and look forward to 2017. These are YOUR holidays, too - ENJOY!

WEIRD JOB WEDNESDAY - Pet Food Taster

"I wouldn't give that to my dog..."

This job is actually NOT for the dogs... PET FOOD TASTERS are checking for consistency, texture and, yes, flavor. Smell is important and so is the visual appeal. 

Tasters do not actually swallow the food; they taste and spit it out. Pet food tasters usually do more than just sample food - they test for nutritional content, formulas, and production methods. The average pay is about $40,000 a year, but could be much more depending on your education and skill level,

It's Not JUST About the Money


Your brain on retirement is not nearly as sharp.

(Editor's note) Were you looking forward to retirement at 55, 60 or 65? You planned for  your "golden years," only to find your retirement funds slashed by the recession and social security benefits insufficient. You must keep working into your 60's, maybe even your 70's. There is  a silver lining to continue working; a study, discussed in the Washington Post, is now proving that  working is not only good for your physical health but is also good for your mental health. The study is looking at overall health, chronic diseases, ability to perform daily activities, happiness levels, and more. The "sweet spot" for retirement is estimated at the  late 60's:

“Retiring too early can hurt you,” said Esteban Calvo, a sociologist with the Columbia Aging Center and the Institute of Public Policy at Diego Portales University in Chile. He is currently conducting a longitudinal study looking at over 100,000 people in 21 countries to determine the physical and mental effects of retirement. 
So far, the study, “Should I Stay or Should I Go?” shows negative effects for those who retire earlier than the mean age - and the outcomes are worse the earlier you stop working. “At 50 it will be very, very bad for your health,” Calvo said. “At 60 it will be bad but not as bad as at age 50.” Read the complete article here.
