Singaporeans Need Online Security Training Says Knowles Training Institute

Using the Internet for business and leisure is a necessity in today’s
world. “As the technology that allows you to work more efficiently on-line
increases, techniques used by Internet criminals also adapts.” Said Sancy Suraj, Founder & Managing Directory of Knowles Training Institute.
While some on-line crimes are perpetrated only for the criminal to exert power
by making your life miserable through damaging your computer, identity
theft is a main focus for most Internet thieves. In addition to identity
theft threats from hackers, computers can fall victim to viruses, spyware
and phishing programs from Internet misuse. While you may think that
high-profile or wealthy individuals are the common targets, most
hackers are looking for any easy opportunity. The easiest opportunity,
of course, is an unprotected computer. Your computer holds all of your
most private personal and financial information, so proper security is a
must to keep you and your files safe.
1. Activate protection systems.
If your operating system comes standard with a built-in firewall, spam
blocker, anti-virus software or other security application, be sure that it’s
activated. Your Internet service provider may provide an e-mail spam
filtering service that should also be turned on.
2. Upgrade your protection.
Using security software won’t help if it’s not up to date. Be sure that
you are using the latest versions of spam, spyware and virus-detection
software. The most current software will be ready to handle the most
current on-line threats. Also remember to renew subscriptions if the
software registration expires at some point.
3. Use anti-virus software.
You should always have anti-virus software on your computer. These
programs scan all files that are downloaded from e-mail or opened from
the hard drive to ensure that they are safe from malware before use.
When these programs detect a virus, they are able to isolate and
destroy it so it does not infect your computer.
4. Use anti-spyware programs.
Just like anti-virus programs, spyware protection is also necessary.
These programs scan your computer for spyware, browser hijackers
and other malicious programs. Both free and commercial anti-spyware
products are available.
5. Update automatically.
Set both your operating system and security programs to update
automatically. Your virus-detection software needs to adapt as new
threats become known. Allowing the software to do automatic updates
will ensure that you always have the highest level of protection
