How to strengthen cybersecurity at home
Tuesday - 1/18/2011, 2:05pm EST
There are huge differences between how you keep data secure across an enterprise - and in your home, InfoSecurity reports it's worth some consideration.
One key area is your user profile. It's probably a lot different at home than the one you have at work. You may have children or teenagers at home who are online a lot, Instant Messaging their friends and downloading games or music.
A security researcher at Kapersky Labs says a lot of info-security professionals are less likely to underestimate the value of security. But a lack of time - rather than awareness - can be the problem. Some recommendations:
- Use the same password management strategies at home - that you do at work.
- Likewise - keep your applications patched and security software up to date at home - in the same way you would at the office.
