Tech tips – Computer Security

Norton, AVG to protect your information. Do not download any pop-ups that may inadvertently show up. They are typically malware and not good.

Passwords – we know it’s a right pain in the rear but passwords need to change regularly. Use a formula that is easy for you to remember but not easy for someone to crack. For example “Password1”, while it contains the required capital and numeric value is the first one most people will try. Come up with something else.

Firewalls – they are there for a reason, to protect your data.   Don’t mess with them, contact your Helpdesk if you have questions or need changes.
