Why Clark Howard Wants You to Set Up a ‘Financial Chromebook’

By Nisos on Jan 28, 2020 5:00:00 PM

Security expert Willis McDonald of Nisos talked with Clark.com and told us there’s no way to stay completely safe from criminals looking to compromise your financial accounts. But Chromebooks come pretty darn close.

According to Verizon's 2019 Insider Threat Report, insider threat actors are prevalent in many industries, and the causes range from personal gain (such as selling sensitive data on the black market) to a disgruntled employee who lashes out in retaliation for a perceived slight. An employee may also unknowingly become a pawn in an external actor’s game of gaining access or, more likely, they may be simply careless in their use of technology.
