Did you lock your front door this morning? Chances are, the answer is yes (and if not, you’re scrambling to text your spouse to make sure that he or she did after you left). The idea of leaving your place of residence open and available to whoever may choose to test the doorknob is virtually unfathomable – we place a high level of value on our home and the items within it. But when it comes to the virtual world, the idea of keeping ourselves safe and how to do so is far more difficult to digest.
