Rather than just sitting back and waiting for cybercriminals to come after you, there are preemptive steps you can implement right now to strengthen your personal IT security. Here are 3 simple tips.
Address your Mobile Security. This one is easy. You can call your cellular provider and ask them to maximize the security on your account. And add a pin and password to your device if you haven’t done so already.
Passwords. Don’t keep passwords in a spreadsheet or text file on your computer. Use a 3rd party password manager like KeePass – it’s free and easy to use.
Back it up. While not so much preventative in fighting off a breach or a hacked account, having a reliable and secure backup can really save you in the event your data is compromised. With a good backup, a compromise or breach is turned from a major disaster into a minor inconvenience. And it’s inexpensive – a service like our SecureCloud Backup covers up to 250GB of data for just $20/month.
Everyone stay safe out there!
