Cyber Security Top 10 Tips

Keeping yourself digitally secure is more important than ever for home users and businesses. Below are Focus PC’s top 10 Tips to staying secure.

1. Install antivirus software and keep it updated:

Antivirus software is essential for detecting and removing malware from your computer. Make sure to keep it updated regularly to protect against the latest threats. Focus pc provide managed anti-virus which we keep up to date for you.

2. Use strong, unique passwords:

Create strong passwords that are difficult for hackers to guess. Use a mix of letters, numbers, and special characters, and avoid using the same password for multiple accounts. Keep all your passwords safe in password manager.

3. Enable two-factor authentication:

Two-factor authentication adds an extra layer of security to your accounts by requiring a second form of verification, such as a code sent to your phone.

4. Keep software updated:

It’s important to regularly update your operating system and software to patch any vulnerabilities that hackers could exploit.

5. Be cautious of phishing attempts:

Phishing emails and messages are a common tactic used by hackers to trick individuals into revealing sensitive information. Avoid clicking on links or downloading attachments from unknown sources.

6. Secure your network:

Make sure your home or business network is secure by using a strong password for your Wi-Fi, enabling encryption, and disabling remote access.

7. Backup your data regularly:

Regularly backing up your data ensures that you can recover it in the event of a cyber-attack or data breach. Focus pc can provide secure encrypted cloud back up.

8. Educate yourself and your team:

Training yourself and your employees on cybersecurity best practices can help prevent cyber-attacks and protect sensitive information.

9. Monitor your accounts:

Regularly monitor your accounts for any suspicious activity, such as unrecognized login attempts or unusual purchases.
