Security Update: A Resolution for Electronic Safety

With the arrival of a new year, it’s a good time to assess your cybersecurity and keep yourself safe. To follow are some tips for doing so:

  • Sift through all of your electronic files, organize them, and delete those that are outdated or unnecessary.
  • Back up your data to a secondary internal or external hard drive. You can also take advantage of cloud-based services.
  • Reinstall your operating system to get rid of clutter and malware. Your machine should then run faster.
  • Familiarize yourself with all of your devices so you can maximize their functionality and security.
  • If you haven’t already, invest in antivirus, anti-spyware, anti-phishing programs, and firewalls — or upgrade these if you can.

And please take the time to check with us here to see how we’re working to provide you with protection throughout the year.
