Covid-19 Security Dos and don’ts

There are a lot of tricks and scams created to fool you. Here is a quick guide on how to keep your data safe.

  1. Use quality security software like F-Secure (can be had for only £25/year for VirginMedia customers).
  2. Use Malwarebytes Premium Version on pc/mac and mobile/tablet devices
  3. Use Sophos Virus Removal Tool =…oval-tool.aspx
  4. Don’t use the same password on different websites. Instead, use a password manager like LastPass, Dashlane or 1Password
  5. If you aren’t expecting to receive attachments in compressed formats like .zip, .tar or .tar.gz or any file for that matter DON’T DOWNLOAD/EXTRACT THEM TO YOUR PC/MAC/DEVICE.
  6. Backup data from all your workstations, devices, servers etc. using a quality backup service like Acronis Backup Cloud.
  7. Try to use 2FA (Two Factor Authentication) on any websites and services that support it.

Follow those and you should be ok. I hope that helps.
