Internet has now become a dangerous place for hackers, trackers, malware and even certain service providers who are on the look to capitalize on the frail data security practices. We tend to be exposed to threats on a high. So here are some of the practices that can be adopted as top tech security tips:
- PROTECT YOUR PASSWORD
It is estimated that around 76% of businesses have been victims of phishing attacks. Password seems to be the first line of defense against unauthorized access. Some of the most effective ways to protect your password include
- DO NOT SHARE PASSWORD WITH ANYONE
Try to use unique passwords for every account which you have online. Password should be nothing less than 10 characters and in order to make it stronger, you can use a combination of uppercase and lowercase characters, numbers, and symbols.
- USE LOGIN VERIFICATION
Try and open accounts that offer two-factor authentication system. This basically sends you new access codes via email or text when you want to access your account.
- CAREFULLY DOWNLOAD OR CLICK LINKS
One of the strategies that hackers still seem to be using is the deployment of malware and viruses on victims' system. Hackers basically create websites and contents which will house the malware which will automatically expose your system to malware the moment you download the contents.
- SIGN IN ONLY INTO ACCOUNTS WITH TRUSTED DEVICES
Life becomes easier when you are able to access your accounts on multiple devices. Try to login into accounts only from those devices which are exclusively yours. Entering your sensitive information on public systems will make you exposed to greater risks.
- GETTING EFFECTIVE SECURITY SOLUTIONS FOR YOUR DEVICES
With the help of anti-spyware software you can identify and eliminate security threats installed on your device. Keep in mind to use one or more updated versions of such software running on your systems.
