Fast Facts and Proactive Steps

Unlike other companies, pushing scare tactics, Altek wants to inform you. We keep our eye on today’s biggest cybersecurity threats and gained insight into the risks of tomorrow.

There are more than 4.5 billion web pages on the “standard” internet. The “full” internet, including the Dark Web, is estimated to be up to 500 times larger.

Let’s run through a couple of fast facts and go over the steps to stay educated and be proactive – making this all a lot less scary.
