Ogden, Utah (PressExposure) September 01, 2009 -- Have you ever had the dream where you go to school, interact with people, learn a little, have some fun, buy lunch, and then look down to realize you have no pants.
Todayâs internet is like that dream. Everyone is too busy social networking, learning new recipes, gaming, making purchases, etc. to look down to see if they still have their shorts. There are vulnerabilities everywhere, super highways for hackers to steal valuable information that consumers type in not realizing the dangers of entering data into an unverified site. Consumers should be concerned about their safety, but do not know where or how to verify if a website is safe.
Internet security issues are only getting bigger. Take for example the Black Hat and Defcon Conferences where hackers get together to demonstrate and learn how hacking is accomplished. The Hackers are professionals and the consumers need professionals on their side to protect them from losing their shorts.
Trust Guard also provides Payment Card Industry (PCI) scanning which is done to check for vulnerabilities on websites. It is imperative that consumers look for security seals on websites before entering any data, and demand that websites without security seals get them before any transaction takes place.
Only an educated consumer can be certain the internet is a safe place to play, purchase products, or become popular. Only a concerted effort by consumers will cause unprotected websites to become certified. Only a company that displays security seals is worthy of consumerâs business. Only at http://www.Trust-Guard.com/secure can you find the information you need to educate yourself to become a savvy consumer.
Trust Guard provides the answer to the questions: Is it safe to enter my info here? Can I be sure my credit card number wonât be stolen? Is my identity at risk if I use this website? If a website has the Trust Guard seal of approval consumers can interact with people, learn a little, have some fun, buy lunch, and at the end of the day be confident that they can look down to see they still have their shorts.
