Locally, on the PC

•I don’t store important data only on my PC.
•I have 2 backups of my data: on an external hard drive and in the cloud – Dropbox/Google Drive/etc.
•The Dropbox/Google Drive/OneDrive/etc. application on my computer is not turned on by default. I only open them once a day, to sync my data, and close them once this is done.
•My operating system and the software I use is up to date, including the latest security updates.
•I have turned off macros in the Microsoft Office suite – Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.
•In the browser
•I have removed the following plugins from my browsers: Adobe Flash, Adobe Reader, Java and Silverlight. If I absolutely have to use them, I set the browser to ask me if I want to activate these plugins when needed.
•I have adjusted my browser’s security and privacy settingsfor increased protection.
•I have removed outdated plugins and add-ons from my browsers. I only kept the ones I use on a daily basis and I keep them updated to the latest version.
•I use an ad-blocker to avoid the threat of potentially malicious ads.
