Guidelines for Digital Security

Security Mind Set

Understanding the need for (digital) security

  1. Look at security as a slider between no (network) access and no security.
  2. Everyone can harass anyone on internet.
  3. Everyone is interesting to hackers, so you (and your computers and devices) are too.
  4. Common sense is a good defense, use it.
  5. Avoid risks when possible.
  6. Attacks are getting more advanced over time.
  7. Don’t be an ostrich: when in doubt, ask someone to help and check your device(s).
