Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, Cyber Security Awareness Briefing – Prilock supports each candidate’s bid for President.
At least 111 million individuals’ data was compromised due to hacking or information technology problems in 2015, according to a report released by cloud security company Bitglass. Monitoring is no longer enough to protect compromised victims.
Prilock Security has released a fully branded 1-Year, Securing Your Digital Life Awareness Briefing and Alert Service for the presidential candidates, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Proceeds are donated to the campaigns or parties within the Federal Election Commission guidelines. Prilock also displays the percent of support for each candidate of those interested in cyber protection.
Both Hillary and Donald know our critical services are under constant cyberattack from nation states, cyber gangs, and hacktivists, all with different agendas. Each citizen is also a target of sophisticated email phishing campaigns, social engineering attacks using phone calls, text messages, and social media. Unless every person using the internet with a smartphone, tablet, laptop, or WiFi is shown the traps used to steal their identity, finances, personal and company information, they will remain easy targets for hackers. According to Dan Hirning, founder of Prilock: “We didn’t want another training with a lot of technical talk or large lists of do’s and don’ts that won't help anyone. We designed the lessons as if a hacker was showing his friend or parents how to be safer online. This includes how they are targeted, what he’s after, and the tricks and psychology he uses to con people.”
Prilock created the first security awareness training produced specifically for anyone who wants to be secure online, but doesn’t want to become a computer expert. From seniors to CEO’s, moms to managers, following these simple best practices will make you safer than 98% of the people online, and a harder target. If you own a business, do online banking, pay bills, email, or use social media, you need to understand how you are targeted and what to do to be safe.

State-of-the-Union Address Emphasizes Risk Individuals Face and Demonstrates Real Need for Consumers to Assume More Responsibility in Protecting Identity and Assets
Jan. 21, 2015
Prilock Security, an innovator in online security awareness training, today announced it's consumer security awareness program falls right in line with recommendations from the President's new cyber security initiatives. President Barack Obama presented a 10-point near-term action plan aimed at securing the federal government's and the nation's critical IT infrastructure. Point six aims to "create a national public security awareness program" – because security awareness training is the only way to effectively reduce risk for all individuals.
Prilock's online security awareness is designed for all user experience levels from beginning to expert. The one-hour interactive briefing is perfect for anyone who uses a smartphone, laptop, or public Wi-Fi. Users learn how cybercrime works and why everyone is a target. The easy-to-follow lessons are reinforced with Prilock's Hacker Challenge game, where a hacker attempts to steal users ID, cash, and retirement accounts. The training meets all corporate compliance regulations and mandates for security awareness training but is presented 8-minute lessons that make remembering and implementing the skills much easier for individuals and employees.
"Prilock takes the approach that it is easier to learn something by doing. We show people how to be safe following a proven principal;What I hear - I forget, What I see - I remember, What I do - I understand." said Dan Hirning, CEO of Prilock." "Once students are shown by a hacker how he sets up an attack, and the psychology used to trick the victim, people know what to look out for, now, and in the future."
In the cyber security portion of the State-of-the-Union address, the President said as a country we need to do more to protect every persons' bank account and personal information. And the best way to do that is to empower people with knowledge that keeps them safer online because when companies or government agencies are hacked it's the individual who suffers the most. Prilock shows people how to use the Internet, email, and social media safely - greatly reducing their visibility and vulnerability to identity theft and other malicious attacks.
For a limited time, Prilock is offering 50% off its 1-year security awareness training. It offers Gift Cards, allowing people to send them to friends, clients, or loved ones to help secure their online activities from hacker's tricks. For more information visit. www.prilock.com

The Next Big Thing in Cybersecurity: Training
Jan. 16, 2015 /eWeek/
With the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority and the Senate Banking Committee all making cybersecurity a top priority in 2015, the financial industry seems to feel the crosshairs hackers have placed over them.
Registered investment advisors are gearing up for new regulations, with some spending thousands on IT staff, new technology and cybersecurity insurance. While technology and regulations are certainly important, JP Morgan Chase's reported $250-million-a-year cybersecurity budget still wasn't enough to prevent a data breach that compromised the data of 83 million customers.
Dan Hirning, the founder and CEO of Prilock, a new company from Carlsbad, Calif. offering cybersecurity training, said that hackers have pivoted from attacking networks to attacking individual employees. The trail of logins, passwords, emails and social media posts that a person leaves everyday at work and at home can expose their company.
"The IT individuals have looked at the end users as un-trainable, and their answer is [more] technology," Hirning told WealthManagement.com. "None of that is going to stop the individual user from clicking a dangerous link other than education and awareness."
To combat this, Hirning launched Prilock to show people how to use the Internet safely and reduce risk, liability and exposure facing companies. His team consists of security engineers he worked with at Science Applications International Corporation, a defense company that helped Fortune 1000 companies and branches of the U.S. government secure their networks. One of the engineers also works on the security for Intuit, the company behind advisor products like QuickBooks and PortfolioMinder, and Prilock said it is "well aware of the complexities and sensitivities of sharing financial and personal information online."
Prilock is web-based and can be accessed from anywhere and on any connected device. Hirning said he wanted to eschew the tech jargon of traditional IT PowerPoint presentations in favor of interactive lessons that rely on story-based events, cognitive learning strategies and games. The idea is to explain how hackers build their attacks and use psychology to trick users into clicking.
"Once you've seen an attack assembled – you know how to spot them, now and in the future," Hirning said in a statement. "This is the most effective way for users to protect themselves from hacker's tricks, phishing scams, social engineering, and online predators."
Another challenge is to help people understand why they need to care about cybersecurity. A 2014 study by the North American Securities Administrators Association found that only 4 percent of small to mid-sized RIA firms had experienced an attack, but security professionals said this number is likely the result of self-reporting. Firms don't want to damage trust with clients or attract regulators, and many don't have the ability to detect a breach.
The result is a false sense of security among the industry, even though an RIA's network could be a goldmine for a hacker. After all, the information shared between a client and an advisor is all a criminal would need to access finances, take over an identity and even commit a physical crime like home invasion. This could ruin an RIA's relationship with clients, and without the resources of JP Morgan, just one breach could mean the end of a small to mid-sized practice.
"The high-value clients are a target, the person who manages the clients is an even bigger target, and the firm they work under is an even bigger target," Hirning said. "If I can get into a system in one way, it's just a matter of time before I get more."
