3 Tips for Fighting Hackers

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.
