Cybersecurity and 5 healthy habits to boost it!

Cybersecurity
Boost your cybersecurity with these 5 healthy habits!

Stressing Cybersecurity is of utmost importance due to the rising digital footprint we leave behind that could be the potential gateway for bad actors to exploit. With the pandemic that forces everyone to adopt the unsafe digital world, we need to take extra precautions to ensure that we are cyber safe.

We can start it by changing our unhealthy habits when it comes to Cybersecurity. But before we delve into that, let’s first know the concept behind Cybersecurity.

What is Cybersecurity?

Cybersecurity is the practice of protecting networks, programs, and systems from any cyberattacks that aim to alter, destroy, or access confidential and sensitive information, interrupt normal business operations, or extort money from unsuspecting victims.

With innovations that cybercriminals are promptly implementing to their attack tactics, implementing effective cybersecurity measures is becoming challenging nowadays as there are more devices than people, and more people are not aware of safety cybersecurity practices to begin with.

Cyberthreats and Cybersecurity

Some people often believe that they are exempted from cyberattacks. They have a dangerous mentality of their unlikeliness of getting hit or becoming a victim of these attacks. Most commonly, they do not care that they are vulnerable and proceed into doing the poorest habits in terms of Cybersecurity. 

In a survey conducted by the Cyber Security Agency of Singapore (CSA) that was released on June 28, 2021, it was found out that nearly 4 in 10 people, or 37%, reported that they became a victim of a cyber-attack last year. This is a jump from the 2019 recorded data of 28%. Clearly, there should be a change in cybersecurity habits to lessen the alarming rate of people becoming victims of cyberattacks. 

There is no telling who will be the next target of these cybercriminals. With people still thinking that it is unlikely for them to get hit, they become prone and open to cyberattacks in the future.

5 Best habits to boost Cybersecurity

These are some of the best habits every Organization and individual should follow to prevent the infestation of any possible cyberattack. It should be taken into the heart as cybercriminals do not discriminate as to who will be their next victim. 

Habit #1: Update your software and operating systems regularly

It is highly recommended that the company’s software be up to date. These updates contain security improvements for data protection and other aspects of the company.

Online threats are constantly changing, and they also improve over time. With this, updating your software is essential for one not to fall victim to cyberattacks due to an outdated system the attackers already figured out how to infiltrate.

Habit #2: Use antivirus software

It can do a lot when it comes to malware infestations and potential security breaches. One should utilize its benefits as it detects potential threats and has the capability of removing them.

Habit #3: Use strong passwords and regularly change them

Your password should be strong and cannot be easily guessed. It must not contain any obvious words or phrases linked to your identity, and it must be a combination of letters and numbers for it not to be cracked easily.

Habit #4: Do not open email attachments and links from unknown senders and unfamiliar websites

Ransomware attacks can start from phishing or smishing. One should avoid clicking the attachments accompanied with it as it is the first step to infestation.

Habit #5: Avoid using unsecured Wi-Fi networks in public places

Man-in-the-middle attacks are common to unsecured networks, and they make you vulnerable to them. Make sure to avoid them to secure your data.
