Quick tips to keep your computer safe

Posted: 04 February 2014


- Ensure your system computer software is fully up-to-date - especially your Windows operating system. Windows XP is now outside of the Microsoft support period so will no longer be updated against threats.

- Make sure your internet security software (including Anti-virus, Anti-malware and firewall software) is up-to-date and running.

- View emails with attachments sent from unknown senders with caution. If you weren't expecting it. Delete it.

- Take care to look out for Phishing emails - be extra careful when giving out any personal details.

- Avoid storing passwords on your computer and ensure passwords are complex, different from each other and changed regularly.

- Make sure you keep backups of your work in another location in case the worst happens.
