Don’t post private information on social media account
Exposing personal details may lead hackers into finding your financial information. For the same reason, check your kids’ social media behaviour to make sure they won’t expose private information that may possibly be used against you, in phishing attacks.
Don’t be vulnerable. Update your software.
Cyber security experts always advise to keep your operating system, web browser and the main software applications you use up to date by installing the latest security patches. The updates are mainly released to cover security breaches. Unless you keep your software updated, you will be exposed to the latest threats.
Better yet, use a free product to take care of your software updates and just kick back. This will secure your system by installing the latest security updates and patches for the software such as :
- Adobe Shockwave
- Adobe Flash (plug-in/player)
- Adobe Acrobat reader
- Google Chrome
- Mozilla Firefox
- Internet Explorer
