Is your cyber data protected? Do you think it is? Nope!!!! It is not.
Cybercrime is mainly any crime that occurs on the internet. Information Millions---even billions of gigabytes of information---have been stolen from original internet users. Sometimes it is stored to be used later, sometimes to threaten or to use as material for prosecution or sold.
These crimes are a major threat to each individual in all societies. This is a great threat to every company, every profession, and even to the Government. In olden days---today that means even 5 years ago--- cybercrime was done by an individual or two. Now, today, it’s done by highly skilled cyber-crime experts.
The cybercrime mostly depends on stealing the information of individuals, company or Government. Most typical are the bank account details or secret projects of the government. How can you protect yourself from these attacks?
First, you have to educate yourself about what are all the cyber crimes happening around you. You should be ahead of the hackers before they send you scams and get information from your computer or phone. Not only educate yourself but also talk about it to family members, especially your children, and make them aware.
Second, you should not use your passwords on a different computer which will help the hackers get to you easily. The password you use should also be strong enough that hackers can’t get your information quickly.
Third, use some kind of antivirus protection on your computer that it will alert any kind of malpractice trying to enter into our system. The software of your computer and phone should be always updated. The spams should be checked and deleted. Try not to open junk files.
Fourth, manage your media settings wisely. Try not to publish each and every detail of your life on social media. There will be many social networking sites trying to trick you into giving your personal information. It is always good to read the terms and conditions before signing into anything.
Fifth, make sure you enter into a secured website. How do you know that is secure? The website should start with “https”. Make sure, for the “s” stands for secured. No secured website will ask you for your personal information’s or passwords.
Sixth, follow the current proceedings in Parliament when the Cybercrime Bill just introduced is discussed. You will learn a great deal about the concerns that top corporate and Government experts have about Cybercrime and how to lessen its effects.
