You might delay it, but you can’t stop it. The age of Internet of Things (IoT), where anything and everything becomes a computer connected to the internet, is approaching at an accelerating pace. By many accounts, it’s already here. In a foreseeable future, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a home appliance that isn’t connected to the internet.
20 years ago, few of us had more than a handful of online accounts. The same doesn’t hold true today. Think of all the email services, social media networks, banking applications, blogging platforms and messaging apps that you’ve signed up with over the years. Each of us has a digital identity that spans across a vast amount of data. This includes friends, contacts, preferences, education and employment history, religious and political tendencies, etc. Where does that identity exist?
If you’re like most people, you store a lot of sensitive information on your Android device, whether it’s a smartphone or a tablet. This can be critical business information, banking and payment apps, or personal data, messages and photos that you don’t want the public to see. And as with anything of value, Android devices become an attractive target for malicious actors that want to earn a few bucks or harm you financially, personally, or any other possible way.
Uber paid $100k to hackers to cover up a huge data breach. Now it'll probably have to pay a huge fine on top of that and face a class action lawsuit. How about trying transparency next time? #cybersecurityhttps://t.co/4ysnfnjQAD
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
