Tip Sheets from Oak Underwriting

Oak Underwriting are experienced high net worth insurers who have worked with Flint for many years, here they offer some tips to keep your digital devices and the personal data they store safe.

BACK-UP

Back-up your device files frequently either by using an external hard-drive or a virtual storage cloud, which many manufactures and internet providers offer as part of their product package.

PASSWORDS

Try to use as many different passwords as you can remember. Make them complex and unique, containing a sequence or mixture of letters, numbers and symbols. But don’t make it too complicated that you have to write it down and stick it to your computer monitor.

LOGGING IN

Set up optional security measures to log into your accounts. Whether that’s a security question or a code sent to your phone, this is something a third party wouldn’t be able to break.

SOCIAL MEDIA

Social networking sites, such as Twitter and Facebook, are less secure and easier to hack than high security banking websites, so make sure you have different passwords to access each account.

PRIVATE INFORMATION

If you’re away from home, make sure you don’t save private information on a computer or device used at work or in a public area such as a café or library. If you’re accessing a private account, make sure to log out completely from your accounts, and never choose to save login information

PADLOCK ICON

When an online deal seems too good to be true, your instinct is probably right. The best way to make sure that your personal information doesn’t get intercepted is by simply sticking with trusted, well-known online retailers, or smaller websites that use reputable payment processors like PayPal or Google Checkout. Regardless of which website you use, you should always look for the padlock icon on your browser.

ANTI-VIRUS SOFTWARE

Keep your anti-virus software up-to-date, even if you’re a Mac user. Traditionally Macs haven’t had the same virus problems as PCs, but viruses for Macs are on the rise. Whatever computer you own, install and allow the anti-virus software to regularly update.

BAGS

Use unbranded bags and carry-cases so you’re not advertising exactly what you’re carrying on you.

STORAGE

Unless you really need the space or money, don’t get rid of your old CD or vinyl record collection. Put them in storage somewhere, but don’t ditch them; they’re the ultimate back up
