While the holidays are fondly recognized as "the most wonderful time of the year," they're quickly becoming known for another reason: holiday hacking surges. As online shopping continues to rise, the holidays become prime hunting season for attackers. Identity theft and financial fraud are always risks online, but never more so than when you're shopping, because that's when individuals are putting their personal and financial information out on the Internet in search of the best deal.
Already being coined as one of the worst data breaches of its kind, Equifax announced on Thursday that approximately 143 million people in the U.S. - nearly half of the country's population - along with an unspecified number of people in Canada and the U.K., could be affected by a cybersecurity incident that occurred between mid-May and July 29.
Story provided and presented by LBMC Dear President-Elect Trump, I know that your first several months in office will be busy ones as you focus on addressing a wide range of issues, from U.S. manufacturing to health care. However, I implore you to add one more priority to your first-year agenda: cybersecurity.
Dear nearly everyone at HIMSS in Vegas: The hallways are REALLY crowded. Please do not stop in the middle of a crowded hallway to poke on your phone screen. Keep moving, or step to the side out of the way. That is all. #HIMSS18#TooManyPeople#CrowdedHallways
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".
