5 Ways to Stay Ahead of CybercrimeDecember 2023
Wireless connected devices have become increasingly commonplace in our homes.
However, the convenience of connecting computers, laptops, and smartphones to Wi-Fi—plus smart devices like baby monitors, refrigerators, fire alarms, and door locks—also makes us more vulnerable to cybercrime.
In many cases, you will now have to hire an outside expert to reformat your hard drive, reinstall the operating system and software, and restore data from the backup.
Then, there’s the matter of any personal information that might have been stolen and how it might be used. The fallout could be significant. (With Cyber Protection, after a $500 deductible, many of these losses will be covered by Mutual of Enumclaw.)
Five Easy Ways to Be Cyber Smart
You never know when you’ll need a backup. Have an external hard drive in your home for your laptop or desktop. You can also back up important documents and data in the cloud by subscribing to a service like Carbonite.
