8 Steps To Protect Yourself While Working Online.

 
  1.Get a safer password.
 
  Do not use actual words.
 Try the 1st letter of
 each word in a phrase
 you’ll remember, plus
 non-aphanumerics.

2. Check the URL.

Once you’re on a website,
check the displayed URL is EXACTLY
the same as the one
you typed in — not a different or "new" one.



3. Lock that laptop!

Remember - Windows+L takes
you there in a microsecond.



4. Don’t hit that
cancel button
 
when another update comes in. These include security fixes: if you don’t run them, you’re vulnerable.



5. Encrypt first.

Downloading
data to a USB stick?
Play safe — we all know how easy it is to lose a thumb drive



6. Unexpected

attachment?

Check the sender, and the file extension. GIF, JPG, TIF, MPG, MP3 and WAV are safest. Watch out
for .EXE files and double extensions filename.gif.exe.



7. Don’t oversocialise.

Keep your professional and your social lives separate, and don’t give away ANY company information on social networking sites.



8. Lost your
smartphone?

Activate remote
lock/wipe, and tell
your IT Department
RIGHT AWAY, even if it's your own phone but you sometimes use it for work.
