The increasing use of new technologies by the population has increased the risk of theft. Not only on the street can one fall victim to thieves, but one can also lose sensitive information such as passwords or banking keys in the cloud.
In this case it is even easier not to realize that virtual robbers are committing a crime.
In addition, security no longer depends on you, but the security of third parties, those we shared our data with, becomes important.
What you don’t know about the security of your platforms
How can you maximize individual security on the network?
Periodically modifying passwords and following some basic tips.
The first thing is to know whether the user has been affected by any breach in any platform. The process could be complex for someone who is not really used to all of this, but there are free and secure portals where you may just enter some identifying data of your account to find out whether the passwords are in danger.
Haveibeenpwned.com is one of the examples.
*As if it were a Google search engine, users only have to enter their email or phone number to find out whether the passwords of that profile have been leaked.
In case that leak is confirmed (a message appears in just one second and in a very intuitive red color), the procedure is simple:
Go to all those accounts and change the password.
As experts indicate, you have to set different passwords depending on the platform.
Security monitoring is used to control key security aspects, such as backup verification, or the execution of anti-virus security programs.
The most powerful organizations on the market are a clear example of the importance of cloud security and data protection.
Until recently there was a specific department to manage all IT information and its protection, but the increase of that data bag and the increase of the danger in the cloud have turned monitoring into the most effective solution.
Monitoring the IT structure of a company means centralizing the control of all the information and, in addition, it allows to alert and anticipate each error.
In addition, those in charge, both of the IT structure and of data security, do not have as much workload and can perform their functions 100%.
“Our monitoring solution, for example, strengthens security where it is installed.
Businesses are placing increasing emphasis on the security of their IT information, and monitoring is critical to that end.
Any failure or error is reported instantly, so action is faster and losses smaller.
However, ordinary users should not forget that their information is also valuable for cyber criminals”, underlines the expert at Pandora FMS, aware of the interest of large organizations in protecting their data with systems such as monitoring.
Cybercrime has increased over time.
Users, given the number of processes that must be developed online, share more and more information.
A scenario that has made companies take their chances on monitoring systems such as that of Pandora FMS and that extends to individuals the need to protect their data on the network.
