The worst part about getting my Facebook account hacked was losing my personal and professional connections with people from around the world and across the decades after a social media compromise by hackers resulted in my account ultimately being deleted.
I could have quietly let the hackers get away with stealing my account (and $300), but I decided to fight back. I wrote the an article about how to protect your business from social media hackers, and I shared my story with a local news organization.
These efforts to spread the word has also provided me with the opportunity to be a guest on the What the Hack? Podcast hosted by Adam Levin, former Director of Consumer Affairs for the State of New Jersey, serial entrepreneur and author of Swiped: How to Protect Yourself in a World Full of Scammers, Phishers, and Identity Thieves, Beau “Hack Me” Friedlander, and Travis “Here's What Actually Happened” Taylor.
