Are you scared of hacking? 4 easy ways to protect your data and devices
Written by SOT.COM.AL 22 Janar 2023
Here are four simple things you can do to protect your data and devices from hacking:
1. Choose strong passwords
Yes, this is the most boring tip in this article, but it's definitely still important. According to a 2019 internet security survey by Google and Harris Poll, 13 percent of people use the same password for all their accounts.
Do you need to change your passwords regularly? This is a sharp question.
The French cyber security agency recently changed its guidelines to say that frequent mandatory changes actually result in a lower level of password security. As a result, it is not advisable for companies to require regular password changes for basic users (as opposed to IT administrators) anymore.
2. Secure your transactions with two factors
Two-factor authentication combines the use of a password with another method that can be a text message, an app, or a biometric identification.
NCSC recommends using it for activities such as transferring money or adding credit card details.
Yes, two-factor authentication may take a little longer, but it provides an additional safety net in the event of a data breach.
3. Save tears by saving your data
Regularly saving your data should be a reflex. It can be useful in case of hardware malfunction or a virus. It also makes you less vulnerable to ransomware attacks, which have increased since the pandemic.
Experts recommend implementing the 3-2-1 strategy: three copies of your data in two different locations with one copy stored in another location.
But even just one copy is better than none.
4. Update, update and update again
What is the purpose of updating your software? Regular updates bring security patches as well as new security features, the NCSC says. A patch is a fix for a security hole that has been discovered since the software was launched.
The operating system (OS), your web browsers and your antivirus are the main points to focus on, but not the only ones.
