With the ubiquity of technology, today’s therapist employs several device in her daily routine. The constant transfer information from one program to another assumes that the security provisions and internet connectivity are adequate. In many cases, it is frighteningly not the case.Just alongside the productivity gains spawned by technology, are cyber predators who actively engaged in stealing valuable information, using malware (including various forms of viruses, worms, Trojans) as the tool of choice.
