  • Turn on automatic updates for PC or Mac
  • Use browsers that continually receive security updates when going online such as Chrome
  • Turn on security extensions like Blur or Sneekr for an added layer of security
  • Ask for a monthly report from your IT provider to scan for any suspicious activity
  • In SSH sessions, when communicating at the shell, data is encrypted between the client and server
  • In SSL sessions, data is encrypted between the client browser and the web server before any data is transferred

How to Recover From a Cyber Attack
