Data Doomsday Preppers - Shelly Palmer Cyber Security

Data Doomsday Preppers should assume that every computer exposed to the public Internet is vulnerable to attack, even if it predominantly attaches to the outside world through a VPN (virtual private network). Remember, Joseph Heller's famous phrase: “Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't after you.” Importantly, Data Doomsday Prepping is not a replacement for vigilant cyber security measures. You should encrypt your data, and use every practical security tool to help keep the amateur bad guys at bay. Data Doomsday Preppers fear weapons-grade super cyber attacks and professional bad guys. Which begs for the question, "Is Data Doomsday even possible?" Not only do I think it's possible... I think it's likely.
