-- Lynn Bentley, President of Knobull announced, "With commercial search engines cluttering the web and people understandably concerned about what happens to their personal data, now more more than ever there's a need to make sense of all the academic chatter floating around. That's why we launched Knobull Education Weekly, a curated newsletter for students aiming to highlight important academic developments and share reliable advice to protect yourself."
Subscribers will get an email every Saturday with a brief summary of academic news and articles, including those we've shared on the web. The newsletter also includes commentary from us on privacy-related events as well as occasional news of significant Knobull updates. Here's a sample of the newsletter's content:
This rapid rate of progression has led to the emergence of data security concerns and the corresponding science of cybersecurity.
- To fully protect data, cybersecurity must extend across all of the networks, hardware, software, and mobile devices used by individuals.
- A framework must then be established that outlines how attacks are detected, how to protect systems when an attack occurs, and how to recover from successful attacks.
- Highly publicized breaches of supposedly secure systems, even those maintained by elite companies, cast fear into the population that their personal information could be exposed.
- The relevance and commonality of personal data distribution as a source of business revenue is increasing, and responsible company's like DuckDuckGo and Knobull are scrambling to stem the tide of this costly form of digital intrusion.
- Cybersecurity is increasingly important as organizations are required to remain agile and diligent in today's vulnerable digital landscape, creating a high demand for cybersecurity professionals.
Bentley concluded, "Note that launching this excellent information source adds to the timely postings at our existing LinkedIn and Facebook profiles and the Knobull Student News Page, a popular series of posts providing student oriented information to thousands of readers. In fact, why not check them out?"
