Tip of the Day – 4 Ways to Secure Your Data

Filed under: Tip of the Day

DataAre you fanatical about protecting your data? You’re not alone. In fact, short of retinal scans many industry companies are going to great lengths — including finger-recognition technology and explosion-proof safes — just to protect their data, as well as their customer’s.

This year’s Counselor State of the Industry has a section on High-Tech Tactics that is chock full of great tech tips and advice, including four tips on how best to secure your data:

  1. Use A Layered Defense Model – Combine tough-to-crack passwords (uppercase and lowercase letters, as well as numbers, in every one) with up-to-date antivirus software, operation system and application security patches as well as a strong firewall.
  2. Employ Encryption – Make sure all removable media and devices are encrypted.
  3. Click With Caution – Don’t ever open unexpected attachments or click on embedded links in e-mails. Also, never respond to unsolicited requests for information.
  4. Choose Wisely – Pick a hosting company and website designers that understand security.

For more information on securing your data — including four additional threats you want to be mindful of — check out this year’s Counselor State of the Industry.

    I diaegrse. If you change the alphabet from what it is to something new, it would be difficult for everyone to adjust to the change. Also, the reason the alphabet is the way it is, is so that people know what is a person’s name, a place, and such. If you change the alphabet, how would people know if a word is a person or not? Like maT. Am I talking about a person, or a thing. The problem is, you don’t know. Same with JaGUaR. The thing is, people have already learned the alphabet and children are going to or are learning it now. I am a 14 year old, and I don’t understand why adults like you are arguing over this when children who just start school understand this English language. Right now, they seem more intelligent over this situation than you. Changing the alphabet, is like changing the world. If it’s changed, who all is it going to affect? The answer to that, is everyone. Let’s just say, that changing the alphabet, would be a waste of time. There are more important things to do than just to change what makes the world, the world. Everything has its purpose. Ever letter in the alphabet, has a meaning and a reason to be that way. So changing it? I would think again.
