29 Lug Why the future of security
depends on us?
In the past, security was synonymous with secrecy; sharing secrets with somebody implied a great deal of trust between the parties involved. Today we share a lot of information, but can we really trust our mail administrator, Facebook and WhatsApp privacy rules? In this so vastly connected society, what can we do to protect our privacy and the most exclusive part of us?
We asked to our engineers, and these are the 5 rules they follow as users:
- Stay awake, with eyes wide open, when user identification and authentication is requested, control what personal information is disclosed about you, to whom, and how that information will be used and further distributed.
- Safeguard yourself and try to enhance your privacy protection through the use of latest Data Security and virus software.
- Passwords are crucial, mix numbers with letters and special characters and change them periodically. Set passwords to personal documents, to open them, it is necessary insert the password.
- Use file encryption. What’s Encryption? When you use your credit card on Amazon, your data is protected by an Encrypted channel so that your personal data can’t be stolen as it’s being transferred. Encryption is a method of protecting data from people you don’t want to see it. Similarly, if you have a file on your computer you want to keep secret, you can encrypt it so that no one can open that file without the password.
- Secure your wireless transmissions. If you need to send data, set rights so that the recipient can read your documents but can’t change, or forward your email messages. You can even set an expiration date so the recipient can no longer read them after that date.
