The Low-Tech Hack You Might be Overlooking

No business would dream of installing a network without passwords, encryption or firewalls to protect their data. Yet many businesses invite trouble by routinely allowing sensitive information to be viewed in plain sight.

Visual hackers are adept at stealing sensitive information simply by observing their victims as they work on their computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone. According to a recent study, 88% of these hack attempts are successful.

Most businesses fail to guard against visual hacking because they are oblivious to the threat. Rather than wait for an attack, it is wise to educate employees about the dangers of visual hacking so they can take commonsense steps to prevent it.

A more reliable protective measure entails equipping devices with a privacy filter that blocks viewing from outside a 30-degree angle, thwarting visual hackers while allowing users to view their information clearly.
