Eliminate unnecessary software. Hackers attack computers by exploiting software vulnerabilities and the less programs you install the less chances for an attack. After analyzing the software eliminate any software isn’t needed. Before you remove any software, ensure that you have back up all your data and settings.
Use a normal account, not a non-administrator one for your day-today activities. Only log into your account with an administrator account when it’s required for installing or removing software or changing the system settings on your computer. This will limit the effects of a virus and help keep your personal information secure from hackers.
Update your operating system and web browser as well as applications. Updates to your operating system and apps typically include security fixes that protect you from hackers gaining access to your systems or gaining access to your personal data.
Encrypt all portable devices and external drives. This will prevent anyone from accessing your private or sensitive files should they be lost or stolen. If you haven’t done so already, the IT staff at UF will enable this feature for laptops.
