Security Habits to Break and Make in 2016

Here we are in a New Year with all new resolutions and promises. While we keep some, we often tend to break many. Quick Heal will always advise you to work on your promises. Every year, Quick Heal promises to come up with better and updated versions of security solutions for your mobile devices. While we work to protect your devices from threats, as a user you should develop these good and critical home and office security habits.

No.1 Security Habit to Break: Leaving your mobile devices unlocked

No.1 Security Habit to Make: Lock your screen every time even against your friends, employees, family and anyone. I know it’s challenging but when it comes to security, you have to be tough!

So, you may think why you need to secure the personal data of your mobile device from your friends and family. They are your family who can never put your security at risk. Right? Not always. As users, you are solely responsible for your own security. You are doing no wrong by saving your personal pictures and videos. You love sharing it with your closed ones and think there is nothing to hide. Nonetheless, it is important that every time YOU should be present when your device pictures and videos are viewed and shared. Never leave your mobile devices unlocked for others to use and exploit!

And, always be careful about the information you share.

Still not convinced about whether to make this security New Year resolution or not? Some real life incidents always help you to understand better.

#Security @home: This is something I read in a local newspaper about a couple in their early thirties who were left shocked when their personal video was posted on a porn website. Their domestic help who used to stay with them transferred their personal videos to an external drive and sold it to an agent for a few bucks.

REASON: It all happened because the husband never locked his smartphone while he was away. A small lapse in security turned disastrous for the couple.

#Security @Office: Employees stealing crucial company data is not new. This is definitely one of the most difficult situations that organizations worldwide are facing today. As an employee, consider yourself in a situation, when you are caught unawares after senior management accuses you of data theft or data leak. It puts your entire reputation and career at stake.

REASONS:

  • You have given your colleagues open access to your work station. A colleague who left the organization transferred important office files to an external hard drive thus breaching the company’s IT security policy and overall your trust and reputation
  • You have shared your password with your team allowing them to access your system in your absence
  • Your organization doesn’t have a strong enterprise solution to handle data theft or data leak

As security experts, Quick Heal offers advanced DLP (Data Loss Prevention) Solution for its enterprise clients. For more information, read here. We help enterprises in reducing the cost of data security and as an employee, you should help your organization by avoiding accidental loss of company data.

Never leave your workstation accessible for others to exploit!

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. A small step towards developing good security habits can help prevent worst security disasters.

Lock your screen and be safe even when you are away!

Good habits will never die. Watch this space for more updates on Security Habits to break and make in 2016.

I currently use CleanMaster app on my smartphone to scan, lock etc various apps/programs. Does QuickHeal have a similar utility? I have been hearing some reports about CleanMaster not being safe, about data theft etc.

Hi Harish,

In brief, Stuxnet is known to be one of the most damaging cyber weapons ever created in the wild. The Flame virus and Duqu (which is a collection of malware) are related to Stuxnet. We recommend the following article for an insightful read into these malware – https://www.concise-courses.com/security/stuxnet-flame-gauss-duqu/

Quick Heal works to protect its users against all types of viruses and malware including Trojan, spyware, adware, and keyloggers to name a few.
