In this article AJR discusses Tips to Keep Your Computer Secure
With the more complex security landscape and tougher challenges that every PC users have to face. According to a statistic report, the reported cybercrime has been rocketed from 15,184 in 2014 to 23,996 in 2016, and this rate is expected to rise in 2019 with the popularity of the Internet across the globe.
So, how can we protect ourselves against cyber criminals while enjoying the convenience and entertainment the web brings to us? Below are several security tips:
Always have your important files backed up
Though ransomware is not something new, cyber attackers can still use this file-hijacking trick to gain large ransom and cause great damages every year. This year, before any new ransomware attack is revealed, backup important files to ensure your file safety.
You can use either an extra hard drive to store your data or online file storage services like Google Drive, Dropbox or Apple’s iCloud. Also, you can use Microsoft OneDrive, This tool saves your documents when a change is made and syncs to the cloud and any other device you have one drive installed on, so even if your hard drive goes bad, or your computer suffers from damages caused by ransomware or a system crash your data is securely in the cloud and not stored locally on your machine.
Beware of “too good to be true offers” in your mailbox or on a web page
Phishing is another favorite of attackers to steal personal information or even get control of a PC. A mail saying you have won a 1 million lottery jackpot is probably outdated, but a website banner saying “Get free iPhone X. Limited time offer!” may still be a good bait to lure victims. Remember, if an offer is too good to be true, then it usually is NOT true!
