Well… Think Again !!!
WE ARE DATA
By Hazim Zaidani
Connection is made possible through the Internet, telecommunication networks and digital devices.
most of us do not know how to secure our digital data !!!
Be Alert of Imposters
Make sure you know who is receiving your personal or financial information. Unless you know who you’re dealing with, don’t give out personal information over the phone or Internet.
Before you dispose of a computer, destroy all personal information stored inside. Use a “disk-wiping” software to overwrite the whole hard drive.
Secure your browser. Guard your online transactions by using encryption software that scrambles information you send over the Internet. Also, check for a “lock” icon before you send any personal or financial information online. This icon located on the status bar of your Internet browser means your information will be safe when it’s transferred.
Keep Passwords Private
Use strong passwords for your laptop, credit, bank, and other accounts. Be creative: have a variety of characters in your password. Avoid using the same password for everything.
Too much information about yourself posted online can enable an identity thief to use it to answer ‘security’ questions on your accounts and obtain access to your money. Try to limit access to your networking page to a small group of friends.
All of us need to be well aware of our digital data. Now, every device is connected via various types of connections. So, it is essential for us to protect our data from intruders and cyber crime.
After all, we are all data…
