I had a nightmare recently, where I was using my computer (yes, I have very exciting dreams) and suddenly all of my windows started closing on me, and my files became encrypted by a malicious program. I checked my phone immediately and found the same thing happened there as well. My electronic life was completely compromised and I was powerless to stop it. Then I woke up in cold sweat.

It served as a sobering warning that it’s not a matter of if, but rather when something like this will happen. The key difference is how prepared you are for that eventuality.
