We have noted down 5 amazing cyber security hacks which everyone should know about. These 5 security hacks will allow you to protect and secure your working environment in just a couple of minutes. The tips and hacks which are presented below can be used on each computer or device which is connected to the internet.
It is important to be aware of malicious internet users. These malicious internet users are crawling the internet for unaware users. Once they find their victim, they will try to infect the victim with Remote Access Trojans. We will teach you how to spot these type of attacks and how to defend yourself against these type of attacks.
Passwords are an important security layer. Please make sure that you use a password, the best thing you can do is to create a password which is actually a sentence which you can remember easily.
For example, you can use the password “ilovemych!ldr3N”. This password cannot be hacked within a couple of minutes and it is very hard to brute force.
Use an antivirus on your computer and make sure that you allow it to update when needed. The updates will update the virus list in your antivirus program, allowing it to find the latest viruses and malicious codes. You can download various antivirus programs for free, but I highly recommend you to buy an antivirus package. This will force you to update the package, because it has cost you money.
Do not use the same password over and over again. What you can do, is change the characters which are used in the password you are using.
For example, you can use the password “ilovemych!ldr3N1” for your e-mail account and you can use “ilovemych!ldr3N2” for your Facebook account.
Please do not use the password which is presented above – this password can be indexed and might be used in the future.
Where to store data
If you have data which should be secured, store it on an encrypted hard disk. I personally prefer an external hard disk as this allows you to eject the hard disk when needed.
Using the internet
When you are browsing the internet, make sure that you take care of the files you download. If you download a file from an untrusted website, you could scan the file on the virustotal.com website. This website will run 52 virus scanners on the uploaded file, if a virus is included, it will be shown and if it is clean, you are 99% sure that you can run the file without getting infected.
