Think online security is all about watching what websites you visit and avoiding suspicious attachments? It’s time to go old school on today’s technology.
Cybersecurity threats are in the forefront of the news today – and for good reason. We all use the Internet freely, but it’s important to remember that not everyone is a law-abiding citizen you’d invite onto your private home or business network.
You can, of course, rely on specialized security software to keep you safe. You know the ones: they come with anti-malware, a firewall, a password manager; they scan your Facebook wall and sometimes keep the inner workings of your PC clean and tidy.
We suggest that you do install one of these and that you do rely on them.
But not completely.
Don’t get us wrong. We’re not saying there’s a fatal flaw in your favorite security program. But there is in its human users.
The best online security suite is defenseless against poor planning.

Three tried, tested, and trusted business concepts can help you stay safe online: the meeting, the code of conduct, and the plan.
As you can see, today’s technology can benefit from a touch of old-school planning and preparedness. If you have any questions about making your home or business network more secure, don’t hesitate to call us today!
