Five safety points you cannot neglect

In a world where digitization and connectivity are constantly growing, IT security has taken on a paramount role. Threats evolve at the same pace as technology, so it is essential to stay up-to-date and protected. Here are five critical security points that you can’t miss:

  1. Strong and unique passwords:
    Passwords are the first line of defense. Make sure they are long, complex and combine letters (upper and lower case), numbers and special characters. Avoid using the same password for different services or applications. Tools such as password managers can help you keep a secure and orderly record of all your passwords.
  2. Regular updates:
    Outdated software may have vulnerabilities that hackers exploit. Whether it’s the operating system, software or mobile applications, it’s critical to keep everything up to date. Updates not only bring new features or performance improvements, but often include vital security patches.
  3. Secure networks:
    When you connect to the Internet, especially through public or unknown networks, you are exposing your devices to potential threats. Always use secure connections, avoid public networks for transactions or access to sensitive information and consider using a VPN (Virtual Private Network) to encrypt and protect your online traffic.
  4. Education and awareness:
    Most security incidents are due to human error. Being informed about the latest threats, recognizing phishing attempts or scams and knowing how to act are essential. Provide training and resources to your team or family so they are prepared and less susceptible to risks.
  5. Backups:
    Even with all security measures in place, there is no full guarantee against data loss. It could be a technical glitch, ransomware or simply human error. Make regular backups of your important information, either in the cloud or on external physical devices. Make sure that these backups are also protected and accessible only to authorized persons.

Computer security is a broad and constantly evolving topic, but addressing these five points will essentially give you a solid foundation. Remember that security is not a state, but a continuous process. Being vigilant, informed and prepared are your best weapons against online threats. Don’t neglect your digital security!
