Back up, back up, back up! Make regular
backups of critical data. Every day or every week is a must. Keep
off-site in case of fire or theft.
Use strong password combinations and change
Use virus protection software. That means 3
things: having it on your computer in the first place, checking
daily for new virus signature updates, and then actually scanning
all the files on your computer periodically.
Use a firewall as a gatekeeper between your
computer and the Internet. They are essential for those who keep
their computers online through high speed connections.
Do not keep computers online when not in use.
Either shut them off or physically disconnect them from Internet
Do not open email attachments from strangers,
regardless of how enticing the Subject Line or attachment may be. Be
suspicious of any unexpected email attachment from someone you do
know because it may have been sent without that person's knowledge
from an infected machine.
Regularly download security patches and updates
from your software vendors.
