Be aware of how many of your users are going to March Madness web sites during this time of year. It’s not uncommon to hear complaints about the network being slow being tied to numerous users streaming games at work. This is exactly what the hackers are hoping to find, so be cautious. Only use sites you can guarantee are real. Be skeptical of apps that you are encouraged to install to follow the madness. Be sure these are legitimate as well. Otherwise March Madness will turn into March Sadness in the time it takes to dribble the ball and get fouled.
