Quad Cities: Where do you get your cybersecurity news?

What's your cybersecurity plan

Twin State Tech was featured on Paula Sands Live and Living Local shows during October, Cybersecurity Awareness Month.  Beth Tinsman, CEO & Founder, was invited to the shows to share some important information on how to be safe and secure in the digital world.  

Interview: How Outsmart Cyber Attackers  

Beth Tinsman, Founder, and CEO of Twin State Technical Services was invited to Paula Sands Live. Her interview urged anyone involved with a business to create a cybersecurity plan to outsmart cyber attackers.  

The show aired on October 19, 2022. Beth Tinsman shared that about 60% of people have been victims of cybercrime. Cybercrimes include compromised credit cards, mobile message scams, social media requests from people we don’t know, and fraudulent job filings.  

During the interview, Beth revealed businesses or individuals who lack updates on their systems or software could be the most vulnerable to attacks. To stay safe, she recommends implementing artificial intelligence, like antivirus tools to alert and block attacks before they happen and suggested applying strong passwords, multi-factor authentication, and password policies. Beth and the Twin State team enjoy helping people in the community and have been in business for 25 years.
