The Most Important Cyber Security Tips

  1. Realize that you are an attractive target to hackers. Don’t ever say “It won’t happen to me.”

  2. Practice good password management. Use a strong mix of characters, and don’t use the same password for multiple sites. Don’t share your password with others, don’t write it down, and definitely don’t write it on a post-it note attached to your monitor.

  3. Never leave your devices unattended. If you need to leave your computer, phone, or tablet for any length of time—no matter how short—lock it up so no one can use it while you’re gone. If you keep sensitive information on a flash drive or external hard drive, make sure to lock it up as well.

  4. Always be careful when clicking on attachments or links in email. If it’s unexpected or suspicious for any reason, don’t click on it. Double check the URL of the website the link takes you to: bad actors will often take advantage of spelling mistakes to direct you to a harmful domain. Think you can spot a phony website?

  5. Sensitive browsing, such as banking or shopping, should only be done on a device that belongs to you, on a network that you trust. Whether it’s a friend’s phone, a public computer, or a cafe’s free WiFi—your data could be copied or stolen.

  6. Back up your data regularly, and make sure your anti-virus software is always up to date.

  7. Be conscientious of what you plug in to your computer. Malware can be spread through infected flash drives, external hard drives, and even smartphones.

  8. Watch what you’re sharing on social networks. Criminals can befriend you and easily gain access to a shocking amount of information—where you go to school, where you work, when you’re on vacation—that could help them gain access to more valuable data.

  9. Offline, be wary of social engineering, where someone attempts to gain information from you through manipulation. If someone calls or emails you asking for sensitive information, it’s okay to say no. You can always call the company directly to verify credentials before giving out any information.

  10. Be sure to monitor your accounts for any suspicious activity. If you see something unfamiliar, it could be a sign that you’ve been compromised.

My Personal Comments


This was definitely something that I have always wanted to do at some point in my life, but I never knew when that time would be.  Then one evening I received a call from my father and he just happened to ask me if I would like to go jump out of an airplane with him and I said, “Sure why not?”  I know that this is an experience I will never forget and one day I might actually do this again.  However, I just would like to thank my beautiful supportive fiance Chicari , my father Emanuel Cole and our families and friends that have always been very supportive and kept us in their prayers.   I am happy to be able to share this wonderful experience with all of you and I hope that my experience helps encourage you to face your fears and live your life the fullest.




Google Keep makes staying organized easier than ever.  You can easily keep track of your ideas and to-do lists or share them with friends and co-workers for free by using Google Keep on your Android or IOS device.  I’m not sure how many people still use massive amounts of sticky notes to keep track of your ideas or things to do like I did, but Google Keep has a couple great solutions.

Here are just a few ways you can stay organized without all of the extra clutter.

Transcribe Words From Pictures

In this case, Google Keep could make a picture worth a thousand words.  By using (OCR) Optical Character Recognition, Google Keep can transcribe words from pictures automatically, so you won’t have to type them out later after a long lecture or business meeting.  In order to do this all you have to do is take a picture and selected “Grab Image Text” and Google Keep will transcribe your words.

Create drawings or search handwritten notes

You are able to sketch images in the Google Keep application. All you have to do is just select the pen icon at the bottom of your mobile device screen and many different options will appear.  When you are finished with drawing your sketch with your hand, you can easily share it right with your friends or family.  Also, if you would like you can still return to your handwritten notes at any time by simply searching for any of the words that you wrote.  You can also use the Google Keep search function to find images by searching for the words that are containing within them.

Record voice notes

For recording your thoughts on the go, you can record voice memos within Google Keep on your mobile device. If you click on the microphone icon located at the bottom right of your screen and you will be able to record your message in Google Keep. Whenever you are done talking, the audio recording will automatically end.  Then a new screen will pop up with your transcribed voice message and also an audio file.

Hopefully, these Google Keep tips have helped you and if they have please let me know!
