Keeping It Secure

By Christo Hunter

In this day and age safeguarding your personal and business data has never been more difficult yet important. Now, how do you keep everything secure? Well, the manner of protection often depends on what type of information for example, your social security or pin number, you are protecting as well as how sensitive that data is to you or anyone else. A simple tip to keep data more secure would be to have a strong and different password for different sites and devices. Random capitalization, special characters, and numbers in the password will make it harder to crack. You should also know where the data is being stored. Have a specific place within your computer or network where you would store confidential information. Specific folders, hard drives, or servers can be protected through encryption or by security suites such as Norton, however these suites often cost money.
