IT Security ... What You Need to Know

     Security applied to devices such as computers, smart phones and tablets as well as public and private networks is often referred to as IT security or “cyber security”.  The intention is to secure networks, computers and data from attack, damage or unauthorized access such as hackers, viruses and other incidents.
     Understanding of the different types of IT security will provide you with peace of mind and will help you decide which aspects of IT security you need to improve. 
     When it comes to devices like laptops, tablets, phones and flash drives, keep these items turned off when not in use.  Also ensure that any device that can be password protected IS password protected. Remember, the older a password is, the longer someone has to “crack the code”.   If you never change the password, hackers can and will use if forever.  No matter the hassle, change every password on a regular basis.  Make sure you invest time in creating strong passwords for all your devices.
     Regularly back-up your data.  Although it’s easy to put off, do not click “Remind me later” on your antivirus software.  Update your software and perform regular maintenance to ensure your network remains secure.
