Computer Security Risk Prevention Tips:

Cybercrime prevention can be simple if you follow a few tips. When you're armed with a little technical advice awareness, you can avoid being victimized. Remember that online criminals are trying to make their money as quickly and easily as possible.  The more difficult you make their job, the more likely they are to leave you alone and move to an easier target.  The below tips are basic information on how you can keep your computer and identity safe.

1. Keep your computer current with the latest updates:  By regularly updating your computer, you block attackers from being able to take advantage of software vulnerabilities. While keeping your computer up to date will not protect you from all attacks, it makes it much more difficult for hackers to gain access to your system, blocks many basic and automated attacks completely, and might be enough to discourage a less-determined criminal to look for a more vulnerable computer.

2. Choose strong passwords on all accounts and keep them safe: Use strong passwords using a combination alpha-numeric and symbols (#, $, %, !, ?)

3. Protect your computer with security software:  Your computer must have a good antivirus software to monitor all online activities and protect your computer from viruses, worms, Trojan horses, spyware and other malicious programs. Keep in mind that many newly purchased computers may not have the right level of security for you.  Also, configuring your Web Browser and email software is one of the most important areas to focus on with regards to security. For example, settings in your Web Browser will determine what happens when you visit websites on the Internet. Ask us how we can help.

4. Be cautious with any program installations on the Internet.  For example, sometimes you may receive a pop up message from  programs with "extras" already checked. Make sure you uncheck, if you do not need certain features.

5. NEVER give your personal information to anyone via email or over the phone. Many Phishing scams have become clever, especially in email impersonating banks, IRS or any institution requesting money or account update with personal information. Contact us first before taking action. These are scams.

It is crucial to make every effort possible to maintain your computer in order to help your system run smoothly and last as long as possible and protect your accounts as well as identity.  Contact us for a free diagnosis today!
