Most of us  depend on our computers and the internet in our daily lives. We routinely use them for email,  gathering information from the internet, downloading applications, shopping, sharing pictures and other tasks. Unfortunately, when using a computer connected to the internet, your computer and the data stored on it are at risk of being attacked by viruses, hackers, malware, and spam. It is very important that computer users be proactive and take the steps necessary to help protect  their computers and data.

By practicing the tips below, you will greatly reduce  threats to your computer and data. 

  • Use strong passwords;
