Traveling the internet highway, how to keep safe

The World Wide Web is a wonderful, interesting place. It’s a facilitator of unparalleled instant information, and a powerful platform for innovation. But, as with anything, the internet has a dark side. The same system some use for honorable causes, others manipulate to cater to their maniacal whims. You’ve heard all the buzzwords: Hackers, Malware, Trojan Horses, et. Whether you understand what they mean or not, you know they are rarely your friend. If your a small business owner, they are even more of a threat, as you have to worry about both you, and possibly your clients’ information being compromised So how do you protect yourself and your business against these clever foes lurking in the dark corners of the information super-highway? Here are a few tips on how to keep the bad guys away and your information safe.
Use a Firewall
A firewall is sort of like a gatekeeper between your computer and the internet. It works by monitoring incoming and outgoing traffic, analyzing different pieces of data and determining whether or not a packet should be let in or not, bases on the perimeters you set. Make sure to set it at a level that you feel will adequately protect your system. Windows PC’s are more susceptible to viruses, so you might want to crank up the firewall if you are using that operating system.
Virus Scan
A virus scan is like a routine checkup for your computer. There are a few good ones you can download for free (just make sure they’re not malware themselves, as a lot of freeware has the tendency to be). Scanning your computer to viruses gives you ease of mind and allows you to catch any harmful critters early before it infiltrates your computer too deep and compromises your information.
Don’t Over-share
On the subject of your information being compromised, you should try as much as possible to keep any personal details to yourself when browsing the web. If you absolutely have to enter your information, make sure it is with a site you trust, and that they have a secure server and a privacy policy.
Change it Up
Don’t use the same ID and password for everything. That way if one of your logins is somehow stolen, you don’t have to worry about all your other accounts. Also, watch out for phishers, who pose as reputable sites such as Facebook and ask you to enter your password. Before you enter anything, make sure to confirm that the url is intact the url of the site you know and love.
Hope these tips help keep your internet an experience enjoyable and hassle free. Happy Selling!
