The service is available on most major Internet services and should be used whenever possible. Generally, it uses a verification code served through a mobile application or SMS, to apply in addition to the username and password when logging in. Applications such as authenticator plus allow backup copies and synchronization of the same.
For vital accounts, especially in professional and business environments, it is worth going the extra mile to protect them using a hardware security mechanism. Generally it is a device in pendrive format that connects to a USB port and contains a highly secure encryption engine. The entire process is carried out within the hardware, greatly increasing the overall security against software solutions.
Microsoft offers Windows Defender in its operating systems as a native security solution and its use is mandatory as basic protection for a consumer, although different specialized providers offer a good number of security solutions, many of them free, that we can use. A mobile business professional should value the use of a comprehensive business security suite and also other security tools such as a firewall.
Free access points have been spread over multiple areas in towns, restaurant areas, airports, train or metro stations, hotels and in all types of businesses. Darkhotel, the Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) discovered by Kaspersky Lab, confirmed the intrinsic insecurity of public wireless networks. It would have been active since 2007 and would have dedicated itself to obtaining inside information from executives and high-level employees staying in high-end hotels. Security researchers have shown that they are easily hackable so we should only use them for occasional browsing. No user should use them for anything other than inconsequential navigation. Much less a professional, opting for higher security dedicated mobile broadband networks.
BitLocker Drive Encryption is a data protection feature of the operating system, available among others, in the Professional and Enterprise editions of Windows 10. BitLocker allows you to encrypt or “encode” the data on your computer to keep it protected against threats such as data theft or exposure in the event of loss, theft or inappropriate removal of equipment, and ultimately improving online security. BitLocker can be enabled on the operating system disk drive, on a fixed data disk drive, or on a removable data disk drive.
Windows Update provides the latest updates to the Windows operating system, with security patches for known threats that must be installed. With automatic updates, there is no need to search for updates online or worry about the possible absence of critical fixes or device drivers for Windows on your computer. As important -or more- than the above is the update of installed applications to the latest versions since these usually include security patches. When the versions are older, they have a greater risk of being attacked by cybercriminals who find vulnerabilities in the program, with special incidence in some such as Java, Adobe Flash or Reader.
We already said that 100% security in a connected world simply does not exist and not only because of a virus since a hardware error can cause the loss of precious personal and / or professional information. Therefore, making backup copies is highly recommended for a user and professional who intends to protect personal and corporate information on a computer equipment. in addition to being a maintenance task that contributes to the health of the hardware. Backups must be stored on a storage device external to our team or on a cloud storage service such as OneDrive.
As always when we talk about cybersecurity, prudence is a preferred barrier against malware, paying special attention to the section on downloading and installing applications from unsafe sites; when browsing certain Internet pages; in the opening of unsolicited emails or attachments, in which they arrive from social networks or messaging applications or in the use of operating systems and applications without updating, which contain exploitable vulnerabilities by cybercriminals for malware campaigns.
