Protect your devices and data

In order to maintain a good cybersecurity for your devices and online activities, take these steps:

1. Regularly update your operating systems - These days it's usually done automatically. But keep an eye on it anyway and make sure your OS is up to date with any security patches needed.

2. Use strong passwords - It's one of the most common problems, where people use easy-to-remember (and easy to hack) passwords. Systems will often prompt you to use stronger password, but it pays to put extra thought in creating one, for an added layer of security.

3. Use good antivirus protection - This is especially important for PC and laptop users with Windows operating system. But many viral threats are also creeping in to cellphone and tablet users. So make sure you have an up to date antivirus protection on your devices.

4. Get antispyware tool - Spyware can range from a pure nuissance to a very serious threat that can take over your device. You'll often find antivirus and antispyware protection bundled in (Symantec). But it's good to get an extra antispyware protection, too.

5. Install a firewall - This will monitor your inbound traffic, but good firewall will also monitor your outbound traffic, too. If you end up with a virus or a spyware, your outbound traffic will increase, as they steal your data or use your device for their murky activities.
