Why information security should concern you (today) and how to secure your data

Why information security should concern you (today) and how to secure your data

First, what does security mean?  

Information security refers to tools and processes to protect sensitive information. It is essential to say that protection isn't related only to copying data but to any unauthorized activities, including inspection, modification, recording, and disruption or destruction.  

Keep in mind that not all sensitive information is related to finances; other types of information are also sensitive, such as intellectual property, personal details from your customers, and even your projects. 

What are common types of cyberattacks? 

A cyberattack is an unauthorized activity, as mentioned before. These days, cyber-criminals use sophisticated tools to launch cyberattacks. Backdoor trojan, malware, phishing, and ransomware are a few types that you may have heard about. Cyberattacks are progressing every day, and sometimes it can be difficult to differentiate between trustworthy and untrustworthy sources. 

How to keep your data secured? 

We have some tips on how to keep your data as secure as possible: 

  1. Make sure your system and software are up to date. 

  1. Use complex and long passwords and do not tell them to anyone 

  1. Do not write down passwords (on your phone, documents, or elsewhere) instead, prefer to use a so-called password tool  

  1. Choose wisely the software you will use and always check if they have security procedures
