Computer Security Best Practices

By Jason Eichner

It’s not just our websites and online accounts that are at risk – our computers and devices are at constant risk of infection, malicious attack, and data theft on a regular basis. In this post, I’m going to go through a few of the ways you can harden your PC security and make your digital world a safer, easier place to be.

Passwords

As I’ve made clear before, passwords and password security are vital. For devices and computers, there’s a few additional points to remember:

Password Sharing

Never share your password. The password to access your computer should only be known by those who should have access to your device. This is normally just you, and depending on your situation may include a technical support operative or manager. The more people who know your password, the more human vulnerability points there are, and not everyone always realises just how important it is to keep passwords secure and private.
