Data protection from PSP Bulgaria
Data represents valuable information in your computer and should therefore be protected from loss or unauthorized access. Depending on the type of data, there are different types of protection. The most common of these is the antivirus protection that keeps computers safe from viruses and malware. In order to have an effective antivirus protection, the antivirus program should be constantly updated so that it can detect the latest computer viruses.
If you use the Internet daily and allow other people to work with your computer by sharing files, you must take immediate steps to protect your computer from threats. Hackers attack other people’s computers and steal personal information such as passwords, credit card numbers and other valuable data. Hacker attacks can be carried out directly when a hacker enters your computer through the Internet or indirectly when malware is spying on you without your knowledge and it sends your personal information to hackers. Fortunately, you can protect yourself by taking a few simple precautions:
Use a firewall
A firewall is software or hardware that checks information coming from the Internet or another computer network. It may turns it away or allows it to pass through to your computer, depending on the level of protection you have. This way the firewall can prevent access to your computer from hackers and malware.
Use virus protection (antivirus).
Viruses, worms, and Trojan horses are programs created by hackers that use the Internet to infect vulnerable computers. Viruses and worms can replicate themselves from computer to computer, while Trojan horses enter a computer by hiding inside an apparently legitimate program, such as a screen saver. Destructive viruses, worms and Trojan horses can erase information from your hard disk or completely disable your computer. Others do not cause direct damage, but worsen the performance and stability of your computer.
Antivirus programs scan e-mails and other files on your computer for viruses, worms and trojans. If found, the antivirus program either quarantines (isolates) it or deletes it entirely before it damages your computer and files Since every day new viruses are identified, it is important to choose an antivirus program that offers automatic update. When a program is updated, it adds new viruses to your checklist and protects your computer from new attacks. If your list of viruses is out of date, your computer is vulnerable to new threats. Updates usually require an annual subscription fee.
Use spyware protection (antispy).
Spyware is software that may display ads, collect information about you or change settings on your computer usually without your consent. For example, spyware can install unwanted toolbars, links, or favorites in your web browser, change the default home page or often display pop-up ads. In some cases, spyware displays no symptoms that you can detect, but it secretly collects sensitive information, such as websites you visit or text that you type. Most often spyware is installed through free software that you download, but in some cases, simply visiting a website results in a spyware infection.
To protect your computer from spyware, use an antispyware program. They alert you when spyware tries to install itself on your computer. Furthermore, can scan your computer for existing spyware and remove it. Since every day new spyware appears, these antispyware programs should be regularly updated to detect and protect against the latest threats.
