How to keep your work information safe from hackers

Posted by John Mathewson on March 27, 2015

When working in the IT world, chances are very high that you will come across sensitive information throughout the course of your career. This means that your computers need to be as up-to-date as possible in order to prevent potential cyber attacks or other issues from outside forces.

Spending most of your day on a computer certainly has many advantages, as long as you know how to keep all of that information protected. This is especially true in those instances when you are working on a project that could have a major impact on your company or even industry.

Here are a few tips to keep your work environment safe:

  • Always use work equipment: When you are dealing with important information, you never want to do so on a personal laptop or electronic device. You should only use equipment provided to you by your employer, as these are likely more secure.
  • Keep the WiFi locked: The internet that your company uses should only be available to those who are employed there. Don't give potential hackers the chance to get into your WiFi and into the machines you are working on.
  • Run updates frequently: The best way to keep your computer secure is to make sure that the software used is as current as possible. If you want to long to make these necessary updates, there could be holes in your security that will leave your work vulnerable to outsiders.
