How to get through college with your data unscathed

College is a challenging, but rewarding time of our lives. But it’s also a time when youngsters can be reckless more frequently.

To make sure that your digital life doesn’t take a hit, here’s a useful checklist of what you should have in place:

  • Data backups (yes, that’s more than one)
  • Strong passwords (never reused)
  • Avoiding online piracy (not an impossible feat)
  • Strong cyber security awareness (phishers be phishing’)
  • Never sharing your credentials
  • Installing software updates as soon as they’re available (or automating them)
  • Using robust security software to protect your data from ransomware and other threats.

Sharing is caring!
