Taking your laptop on a business trip, or To the cottage / Home. Make sure it’s secure In 6 easy steps

Taking your laptop on a business trip? To the cottage / Home. On a weekend getaway? Make sure it’s secure, in 6 easy steps:::

‪#‎Password_Protect_It‬ ||
A strong password is your computer’s first line of defense against unauthorized access. So what makes a password strong? Length is key; passwords should be a minimum of eight characters long and contain a variety of letters, numbers and special characters

‪#‎Put_Up_A_Firewall‬ ||
A firewall is a piece of software or hardware that protects against unauthorized access of your computer — including hackers, viruses and worms. Routers have built-in firewalls.

‪#‎Install_Anti_Everything‬ ||
Anti-virus, anti-malware, anti-spyware, and ad blocking software will help protect your computer from cybersecurity threats such as malware, worms, Trojan horses and hackers.

‪#‎Update_often‬
Now that your virus protection is installed, you must maintain it (as well as everything else on your computer). Check for software updates frequently; most systems will alert you as updates become available. Updates are important for every type of software or application, as some updates are used to remedy a previously unknown cybersecurity threat.

‪#‎Avoid_Public_Wi_Fi‬ ||
Public Wi-Fi is one of the biggest laptop security threats. Unsecure public Wi-Fi hotspots allow hackers to spy on your activities, access your information and even modify or delete files.

‪#‎Back_It_Up‬ ||
While all these laptop security tips will help keep your information secure, nothing is truly full-proof. Make sure important documents are backed up on a USB external hard drive in case something does go wrong.
