1. Keep your operating system up to date: Make sure you have the latest security patches installed. Most operating systems have automatic updates that you can enable.

  2. Use strong passwords: Choose passwords that are difficult to guess and use a unique password for each account. You can use a password manager to keep track of your passwords.

  3. Use two-factor authentication: Two-factor authentication adds an extra layer of security by requiring a second form of verification, such as a code sent to your phone, in addition to your password.

  4. Install anti-virus software: Anti-virus software can help detect and remove malware, including viruses, spyware, and ransomware.

  5. Enable your firewall: A firewall can help block unauthorized access to your computer.

  6. Be cautious when opening email attachments or clicking on links from unknown sources.

  7. Keep your software up to date: Make sure all software on your computer is up to date, including web browsers, plug-ins, and applications.

  8. Use encryption: Encryption can help protect your data if your computer is stolen or hacked. Consider using encryption software to encrypt your files.

  9. Backup your data regularly: Regular backups can help protect your data in case your computer is infected with malware or if your computer is stolen.

  10. Educate yourself on the latest threats: Stay informed about the latest security threats and how to protect yourself against them.

  11. Use a virtual private network (VPN) when connecting to public Wi-Fi networks or accessing the internet from a remote location.

  12. Disable unnecessary services and applications to reduce the attack surface of your system.

  13. If you are going to be away from your PC for more than an hour, make it a habit to disconnect your internet connection.

  14. If you have an anti-virus program you should do a deep viral scan at least once per month. 

  15. If you are not using your laptop/PC camera, we recommend that you invest in a camera cover.

Remember, cybersecurity is an ongoing process, and there is no foolproof way to protect your computer from all possible threats. However, by following these steps, you can significantly reduce the risk of a successful hack.
