Is Cleaning Your Browsing Data Enough? Think Again!

Google has a great tool to actually and really clean your browsing history, cookies, and data.
With Chrome being used a lot and also G-Suite for companies, do yourselves and your companies a favor and delete everything at least once per week.
When you click on History on Chrome,
Bottom left you see: Your Google Account may have other forms of browsing history at myactivity.google.com

Click on it and you will see another set of activities you had no idea about. So next to each day, click the garbage bin and delete. See picture below:

Keep going down and delete every day.

After you have deleted everything, you will see:
Good job!
Close this tab, go back to your history, and clean your browsing data as well:

If you get in the habit of cleaning everything, you will be safer.
We do banking, meetings, financial transactions online.
Why leave a trace for any hacker behind?
The first time I had to delete 5 years worth of data.
Took me about 45 minutes.
After that day, I clean both history and my activity every night before I switch off my computer and it takes literally 3 minutes at most.

So spread the word! Tell your teams, your employees, family members, friends!
And this applies to both PC and Apple computers, and laptops.

Know Your Business When Creating Positions

Be very careful when you create a new position for your company!
I see a lot of companies having trouble finding who they want for their teams.
This is on you.
HR and Leadership MUST know the specifics of each position and their business inside and out.
Example:
When you are trying to find a Risk analyst, or Fraud prevention team member:
You cannot ask for data analysis, prevention AND SQL.
Your IT department has to work WITH this person and fix your back end according to suggestions.
The Fraud/ Risk professional is doing all they can to prevent, examine, mitigate and reply.
They cannot also do the back end work.
When you upload an open position, be VERY specific.
Adding too many responsibilities to one position will only complicate the work flow, the effectiveness and the results.

NEVER assume you know everything.
Be the leaders you portray in your Company’s websites, and Social Media pages.

The better you divide responsibilities, the faster your company will grow, be protected and see results.

Protect your Online Business

Now more than ever, most businesses are doing business online.

Make sure that your website is secure! I can’t stress this enough!
Your website MUST start with https://

When you accept payments online, make sure you check IP locations, email handles, BIN databases and fraud lists.

Install fraud filters!
Block spam buyers!

Counter Punch Ageism and Get Hired

The One-Two Counter Punch to Ageism Hiring Discrimination

Far too many companies have an unwritten set of hiring rules, guidelines and practices they follow.  There are few who come out and openly admit it, however many that have unofficial biases that are easy to identify when you look at the demographics of who they interview for positions.

I believe companies should be ashamed of this discriminatory hiring bias, which is illegal in the United States.  How do companies get away with it?  The unwritten rules in the Human Resources world are commonly practiced and the department of justice has for whatever reason, not pursued it on any major scale.
