Tips to Keep Your Home Computer Safe

Tips to keep your Computer Safe on National Computer Security Day released November 30, 2017 | Gulfstream

Is your Computer Safe?  Did you know that every year on November 30th, we observe COMPUTER SECURITY DAY?

The first Computer Security Day was in 1988 started by the Association for Computer Security to raise awareness concerning computer security issues.

If you’ve never experienced a virus, consider yourself a unicorn.  Computer viruses are rampant and according to the Microsoft Security Intelligence Report and Consumer Reports over 16 million households have experienced a serious virus problem in the past two years.  The estimated cost of all household impacted by viruses, spyware, and phishing is $4.55 BILLION.

Identity theft, fake frauds, ransomware viruses and more can make our online experiences challenging so here are some tips to help secure your computer.

  • Are you running the most current Windows Update?
  • Do you have a reputable Antivirus software installed & running?
  • Is your Windows Firewall is turned on?
  • Is all the software on your computer is up to date?
  • Are you using Strong passwords?
  • Do you require a password to access your computer?
  • Have you removed any unused programs?
  • Is your home wireless network secure?
  • Are you backing up your important data?
  • Do you log off the computer when you aren’t using it?
  • Do you remove your temporary Internet files occasionally?
  • Do you avoid opening unknown emails?

Remember, when you are browsing the internet and shopping this holiday season, if the deal seems too good to be true, it probably is. Some sites are known to lure customers in with an amazing deal and once they have your credit card information, you may never hear from them again.

Share this information with your friends and family and help keep your privacy safe and secure.
