>> What else can I do to secure my computer / network?
 

Here are some useful tips to help keep your computer and network secure:

  • If you are using an ADSL router to connect to the Internet - do not enable the port forwarding or DMZ features of the router unless you know exactly why and its for a specific reason / application as this can by-pass the protection afforded by the NAT / firewall system on the router.
  • Keep your anti-virus software up-to-date but take sensible precautions anyway - i.e. do not open files from people you were not expecting them from (remember it could contain a new virus that the anti-virus companies are not aware of - yet!).
  • Keep your copy of Windows up-to-date by going to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com - there are frequently patches for both the main operating system and key applications like Outlook Express / Internet Explorer.
  • Remember to keep frequent backups of all (or at least important) data and ensure the backups are tested on a regular basis.
  • If you were especially concerned with the safety of data on your machine - backups help but if it is very sensitive you can get applications like PGP that can encrypt email and other data on your machine.
