Giles Witherspoon-Boyd and Victor Villa share their expert advice and tips on how to improve the security on your home computer and internet. Good data security practices start at home because hackers attack the weakest points. A common problem families face are their computers and routers aren’t being updated. Without the proper update, routers have vulnerabilities that can make them easy targets.
Another tip to remember, make sure the answers to your security answers online can’t easily be found on your social media pages.
Remember hacking is big business and bank accounts and personal information are the ultimate prize. Get your credit report and check unauthorized loans or bank accounts. Be engaged, call and verify email attachments (even from your friends and co-workers).
